          Ira W Thompson (Jack Thompson) was born  30 October 1903 in North Dakota to George W and Ona A Thompson (according to the Social Security death index).  In the 1910 U.S. census the family were in Musselshell, Yellowstone Co, MT and  he was still in Musselshell in 1920 (1920 U.S. census)  with his parents and brothers George Emery, Ray John, Edward and Earl Thompson.  He later moved to Wyoming and was always listed as a laborer in his adulthood.  He married Pauline (----?) in Worland in the late 1940’s and they moved to Ten Sleep where they purchased a small log house.  In Ten Sleep he did “odd jobs” as an independent worker.  One day in March 1950 as he was walking up the street he lived on, he passed away from a heart attack.  He and Pauline had no issue.

 

 

Memories:  Jack Thompson was a big man with a quiet, gentle way—one of deep inner courtesy.  His wife Pauline told me he was the kindest person she had ever known.  Fb
