Thompson is located south of 260th Street on 230th Avenue, approximately 4 miles south of Mt. Ayr in Poe Township, Ringgold County, Iowa. It is 100 yards east of the road, situated in the middle of what is currently  a hay field.
In 1929 John S. THOMPSON of
Sunnyside, Washington, placed a 3-foot high cement enclosure around most of the gravesites. There are approximately 4 more
rows of interments outside of the cement enclosure. Several unmarked gravesites are evident in this cemetery.
The inscription at right is set in the south side of the cement wall.
