Hi, Frederick Joseph Thompson was my grandfather's uncle. I too am looking for information about him, have you found anything since this post?

Thanks, Sara.

Just maybe him in a local (N.I.) 1942 newspaper letter?

That's really inreresting, so he stayed in Ballyroney then.

Are you related? Do you know anything about his father? It's said that they were originally from Scotland but I don't know any more.

No, not related.  The 1901 and 1911 Ireland Census returns indicate a birthplace of Co Down for him and his parents:

Hi Sam, I received your message but I'm unable to reply, it says an error has occured and I'm not allowed to send personal messages. Would you please send me your email by private message and I can reply to you that way? Thanks, I'd love to know more about the Thompsons, especially as I'm going to Ireland next Easter to hunt the Drumballyroney churchyard!
Thanks, Sara.
PS I have photographs of William John, Anna Mitchell, and their sons except the eldest.
