THOMPSON

Death has claimed the venerable Mrs. Cynthia THOMPSON, probably the oldest person prior to her death in this county [Washington County, Kentucky]. Mrs. THOMPSON'S death [December 21, 1910] was caused by old age, she having been born [October, 1816, Marion County, Kentucky, the daughter of Benedict and Sarah (HAYDEN) DOWNS] ninety-seven years of age. Altho she had reached this advanced age, this remarkable old lady retained her faculties to the last, conversing with her family and enjoying the daily paper as much as anyone. Several weeks ago she was slightly burned and the nervous shock suffered at this time probably hastened her death which as a grief to her frineds, who hoped that she might pass the century mark.

Mrs. THOMPSON was the widow of Mr. Hilary THOMPSON, who died many years ago [January 8, 1891, Redding, Iowa; interment at Fairview Cemetery, Ringgold County, Iowa]. Two children, Mrs. Augustine THOMPSON and Mr. Wm. THOMPSON, survive. Mrs. THOMPSON was the grandmother of Mrs. John F. SIMMS with whom she had made her home for a number of years and by all of whose family she was shown the love, veneration and respect merited by a woman of her age and christian character. Before the death [December 3, 1910] of Mrs. [Harriet Sallie Ellen THOMPSON] MATTINGLY, a daughter of Mrs. THOMPSON, five generations of the family were living, Mrs. THOMPSON being the oldest and Mrs. John KELLY's child, her great-great-grandchild the youngest.

NOTE: Cynthia was interred at St. Augustine Cemetery, St. Monica Section, Lebanon, Marion County, Kentucky
