Education and career

Born on January 23, 1842, in Brookville, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania,[1] Thompson attended the common schools and Jefferson College in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania (now Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania) and began the study of law.[2] He served in the Union Army during the American Civil War as a second lieutenant of Company B, One Hundred and Fifth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry.[2] He was promoted to captain of Company K in the same regiment on November 28, 1861.[2] He served until March 23, 1863, when he was discharged on account of wounds received in the Second Battle of Bull Run.[2] He resumed the study of law and read law in 1864, being admitted to the bar on December 13, 1864.[2] He entered private practice in Brookville in 1864.[1] He continued private practice in Portsmouth, Ohio from 1865 to 1870.[1] He was a Judge of the Scioto County, Ohio Probate Court from 1870 to 1873.[1] He resumed private practice in Portsmouth from 1873 to 1881.[1] He was a Judge of the Ohio Court of Common Pleas for the Seventh Judicial District from 1881 to 1884.[1]

Congressional service

Thompson was elected as a Republican to the United States House of Representatives of the 49th, 50th and 51st United States Congresses, serving from March 4, 1885, to March 3, 1891.[2] He was elected from Ohio's 12th congressional district for his first term and from Ohio's 11th congressional district for his two subsequent terms.[2] He was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1890.[2] He resumed private practice in Portsmouth from 1891 to 1898.[1] He was appointed by President McKinley as Chairman of the commission to revise and codify the criminal and penal laws of the United States on June 21, 1897.[2]

Federal judicial service

Thompson received a recess appointment from President William McKinley on September 23, 1898, to a seat on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio vacated by Judge George Read Sage.[1] He was nominated to the same position by President McKinley on December 13, 1898.[1] He was confirmed by the United States Senate on December 20, 1898, and received his commission the same day.[1] His service terminated on January 26, 1910, due to his death in Cincinnati, Ohio.[1] He was interred in Greenlawn Cemetery in Portsmouth.[2]
