"This is the story of James George Thompson, an active participant in two of the most important movements in the nineteenth-century development of the United States: the Anglo-Scotch-Indian migration toward the west after the American Revolution and the establishment of legal and social order in a new country. James G. Thompson left more than two hundred personal papers and a daybook of the trading post that he operated on the Canadian Fork of the Arkansas River from 1832 to 1836 ... James George Thompson grew up in Cherokee country. He married a quarter-blood Cherokee, Margaret McNary. He is listed with the Cherokees who immigrated to Arkansas Territory in the Treaty of 1828 ... He finally moved to the Washita Bend of Red River, Texas [where] he ... settled permanently about 1837. Here he spent the rest of his life, marrying two more times and raising a large family"--Introduction.
