I've taken my Thompson family back 7 generations, but I'm stuck at Henry Thompson who came to Harrison from KY around 1814.

Henry's first 3 sons were born in Kentucky, and there is a Henry Thompson in the Bullitt Co, KY, census for 1810.

Here's Henry's family group:

Henry Thompson m. Sarah Moreland (sp) February 10, 1807 (in KY)

Richard (b 1808) m. Marinda Breman (sp) April 24, 1823
James F. (b 1809) m. Louisa Brown August 7, 1832
Benjamin (b 1813) m. Mariah Brown (sister of Louisa) April 6, 1836
Nathaniel W. (b 1815) m. Elizabeth Windell (sp) September 30, 1841
Elizabeth (b 1820) m. John Bray April 30, 1833
Rebecca (b 1825) m. David Wilson February 19, 1846
Belitha H. (b 1826) m. Elizabeth Melton (also Balitha, Belithia) May 10, 1847

I have two branches (about 180 people) down to the present day, so I am eager to go back another generation from Henry. Any birth / land ownership / death / probate tips or documentation would be appreciated.

Thanks, John R. Thompson
