    Notes 
    • I am the great-grandson of Alice Atherton Thompson. Henry and Alice Thompson emigrated to the US in 1884. The had three children, the two girls surviving. One of them was my Grandmother, Eliza C. Thompson (married name Stebbins). Alice Atherton passed away in 1926 in San Francisco. [1]
    • A very impressive document - including photo's - has been put together by James Ward Keesling regarding letters sent between Fanny (Atherton) Bisset and her sister Alice (Atherton) Thompson between 1915-1925 which gives a marvellous insight into life both during and after WW1. [1]
