I am searching for information on my great-grandmother Mary Thompson and her father George W. Thompson of Kentucky.
Mary Thompson married Jefferson Davis (Jeff) Young in Midway, Woodford County, Kentucky in November, 1886. She was the daughter of George Washington Thompson (variously G.W., Washington, and George) and Lucy Wilson. George was born between 1827 and 1829, possibly in Daviess Co., KY. Lucy was the daughter of George W. and Cordelia ("Dilly") Wilson of Owen County, Kentucky. Lucy was born 20 April, 1838 and died in Stamping Ground, KY, 11 March, 1879.
There are so many George Washington Thompsons in Kentucky and Tennessee but none of them have matched this G.W. This George was in Pike County, IL with Lucy and two children in 1860 and in Daviess Co. KY in 1870.
I would like to know something about George W. Thompson's parents, birthplace, and death. He has disappeared by the time of his wife's death in 1879.
G.W. and Lucy Thompson had 6 children:
- James Jackson Thompson, born Oct. 20, 1855, Pike Co., Illinois; died Sept. 19, 1938
I would like to know where this J.J. (sometimes "Jack") Thompson was in 1880.
He later married Virginia Bell Carter, daughter of John Carter of Scott Co.
J.J. and Bell had one child, Albert Carter ("Carter") Thompson.
- Sarah (Sallie) Thompson, born Jan. 3, 1857, Daviess Co., KY, died Feb. 5, 1937, Fayette Co., KY
Sallie Married Marcus V. Finnie and had two sons, Kenneth & Raymond.
- Mary Thompson, born about 1861, birthplace unknown; died August 13, 1896 in Scott Co., KY
I would like to know where Mary was in 1880.
She may have been living with one of her Mother's sisters or working in another household at age 19.
- George W. Thompson, born Feb. 22, 1863, died Oct. 15, 1888 in Franklin Co., KY (of consumption)
In 1880, George was living with Mathias Wilson, his uncle (Lucy's brother).
- Ruth Thompson, born Oct. 15, 1865, died June 7, 1889, Scott Co., KY (consumption)
Ruth was living with Sallie Thompson Finnie in Midway.
- John Walter (Walter) Thompson, born July 6, 1869, died Nov. 18, 1889, Scott Co., KY (consumption)
Any corrections or clues to George W. Thompson or Mary Thompson would be appreciated.
On the 1850 Owen County Census Index I found Baldwin Families list on the
Baldwin on Page 194A
Baldwin on Page 194B
Baldwin on Page 197B
Would someone be so kind to find the above Baldwin censuses in the 1850 Owen
Co. Census for me and send those censuses to me? I do not have access to
that census and will certainly appreciate your help by sending them to me.
Thank you very kindly,

Does anyone have access to Owen County Census 1880? Looking at this census
on line, it shows in Gratz, KY James D. Johnson 32; Emily, 28 -wife; George,10
Daughter, plus other children. Can anyone tell me if this name is wrong, or
just the gender? I am trying to get some info on this family as the Emily
is in our direct line, Emily Bishop, daughter of James A.W. Bishop & Elizabeth
Ann Sharp. Thanks a heap.
