Hugh Miller Thompson (1830-1902), Bishop of Mississippi

"I have always been proud to call myself an Ulsterman, proud that I am a born Derryman, a son of the men that starved and prayed and fought, but never surrendered."

Hugh Miller Thompson,
Bishop of Mississippi,

(quoted from the first edition of the Proceedings of the Scotch-Irish Society of America, online here)
