Ann Lupton was born on May 16, 1733 in Solbury, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Her parents were Joseph Lupton and Mary Scarborough.

Ann moved to Frederick County, Virginia with her family about 1740.

She married Joseph Thompson on about 1750. Joseph was born on March 10, 1728 in Virginia.

Jane Thompson Hilburn (1760, married Levi Hilburn), and

In 1779 Joseph Thompson and Robert Evans were sent by the Bush River Meeting to ascertain the sincerity of John Coats' apology.

Ann died in 1806 in Newberry.

Joseph died on October 22, 1813 in Concord, Miami County, Ohio where he had gone with other Friends from South Carolina. Supposedly, Zachery Dicks, an itinerant minister, warned the South Carolina Friends “of a terrific internecine war not far in the future” that would be due to the evils of slavery. He advised them to leave South Carolina which they did en masse.

Joseph wrote his will on September 21, 1813 in Miami County, Ohio. He appointed his daughter and her husband, Mary and William Jenkins as executors. He left his granddaughter, Sarah McKenzie Miles, $100. He had already provided for his son, Richard, so he left him John Grefeth's journal and Baley's dictionary and $2. He gave his daughter, Mary and her husband William, $365 and a clock which made his provision for them total $800. He left his daughter, Jane, and her husband, Levi Hilburn, 192 acres in Newberry South Carolina. They were to pay his granddaughters, Sarah Miles, Ann Thompson, Mary Thompson, and Sarah Thompson $100 each.

Frederick County, Virginia was formed in 1743 from Orange County. Old Frederick County included all or part of four counties in present-day Virginia: Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, and Frederick, as well as five in present-day West Virginia: Hardy, Hampshire, Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan.
