Peter Thompson

Peter G. Thompson

Peter G. Thompson came to North Dakota from the Princeton, Minnesota area, and filed on a homestead in Deepwater Township, McLean County, in 1915.

Pete was perhaps the last farmer in Deepwater to convert from horses to tractor power for farm work.

He never married, and lived alone on his farm until he retired. He then made his home with his brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Selmer Thompson at Clear Lake, Minnesota, until his death in June of 1964.
