Henry Royer Thompson (Sr) - born September 26, 1904 in Denver, Colorado

We have no other information on this son.

Lionel William Thompson - born September 30, 1906 in Denver, Colorado

Died August 15, 1964 in Los Angeles, California

The State of Colorado could not locate Lionel William Thompson when his father died in July 1957. After seven years of trying, he was declared dead by the State of Colorado. We do not know if the death date above is an arbitrary date set by the State of Colorado in conjunction with California, or if this date is in fact his true death date which we found on the State of California Death Index.

Vivyan A. Thompson - born April 3, 1914 in Denver, Colorado
