2.  1820 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #5 of 7; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):¤
1820 IL Washington Co. Covington Roll M33-12 p. 150 Ln. 36 John Thompson Jr. 100100-00100-0-100
These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 9 or under 1810-1820 = John W. (b. ca. 1815)
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = John (b. 1793)
1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Mary (b. 1795)
1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25; therefore, any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  By subtracting the number in column three from the number in column four, you can create an age class "19-25."

5.  Census Microfilm Records:  Illinois, 1850 (Broderbund CD-301):  "Between Macoupin and Apple Creek," Greene Co., IL, p. 104, 1405/1418, enumerated 12 Dec 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
John Thompson, Jr.? 56 M Farmer 3170 VA
Mary      " 52 F     KY
Peter     " 22 M Farmer   IL
Malinda   " 19 F     "
Preston   " 18 M Farmer   "
Perlina   " 15 F     "
Adeline   " 13 F     "
Elizabeth " 11 F     "
Diana     "  9 F     "
Warren    "  6 M     "
William Thompson 83 M     PA
Temperance  " 82 F     VA
The "Jr." is actually something of a blob; I think it's "Jr."  Is Mary fibbing about her age?  Said to be born 4 Jul 1795.  William & Temperance are obviously John's parents.

6.  1860 Census Images (online at Genealogy.com; Image #35-36 of 99):  Whitehall P.O., Greene Co., IL, Roll 178 (Book 1), pp. 642-643, PNs 46-47, 317/317, enumerated 22 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

Preston Thompson 27 M   Farm Laborer     Illinois
