THOMSON / THOMPSON from the RAGLAND Genealogy
Source:  Margaret Miriam Strong.  1928.  Genealogy of the Ragland Families.  Self-published, St. Louis, MO (online at Genealogy.com). 

She has got to be the most disorganized writer I've ever come across.  What a ditz.  And a good example of why a book needs to be professionally edited, even if it isn't going to be professionally published.
