Taken from the Utah Place Names. (Links Added)
-

Thompson is east of Crescent Junction and near I-70 at Sego junction. E. W. Thompson lived near the springs and operated a sawmill to the north near the Book Cliffs. It was also a prominent shipping point for cattle that were run in the Book Cliffs area. Stockmen from both San Juan and Grand counties used Thompson. The original name for this settlement was Thompson Springs, a name that has recently been revived and reinstated.
