Comment:  Nicodemus is a very rare name for a THOMPSON, which should make finding out about one easy, but in this case, I have so far found extremely little to go on.  There is a Nicodemus THOMPSON, son of William & Charity (MURRAY) THOMPSON of Georgia, who is about the right age to be our subject, but I have found nothing to indicate that any of these Georgia THOMPSONs was in Kentucky, much less Christian Co.  However, there was a Nicodemus THOMPSON on the 1800 tax rolls of Warren Co., KY.  Given the rarity of the given name and the proximity of time and place, it seems a likely possibility that the Nicodemus THOMPSON in Warren Co. in 1800 is the one who showed up in Christian Co. in 1803.

Yes, it did say "2nd Rate" in 1803 and "3rd Rate" in 1804.  Sarah Thompson not found on tax rolls after 1804, nor can I find a marriage record for her in Christian Co. in 1805 or following.
