***Although this obituary states siblings names were Thompson they actually changed their name to Lynch when their father Otis Nelson Thompson/Lynch took his fathers last name around 1900-1904 (After his mother Selena Thompson died). Wesley was the oldest and already had children when his father decided to start using his rightful surname and Wesley chose to continue using the name he had used since birth "Thompson". His sisters both married using the name Thompson, but when they died their obituaries and death certificates list Lynch as their maiden names.
