I've taken my Thompson family back 7 generations, but I'm stuck at a Henry Thompson who came to Indiana from Bullitt in the early 1800's.

One source connects him with Athanasius / Athanatius Thompson from Maryland via Kentucky. There is a Henry Thompson birth record extract that lists Ignatius (Athanatius' brother) as the father (a cousin?).

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

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

Thanks, John R. Thompson

I am looking for the Dillender/Dillinder/Dillander family in Bullitt County. They migrated from old TN in the mid 1800's to KY and Charles Dillender and his wife Sarah 's descendent's moved on toward Bullitt and Muhlenburgh counties in the late 1870's.
