Samuel THOMPSON
Mary READER
Husband:  Samuel THOMPSON
Marriage:  21 Dec 1789, Orange Co., NC
Wife:  Mary "Polly" READER / REEDER
Children:
1.  Elizabeth THOMPSON, b. 8 Sep 1789, NC


Sources:

1.  Christian County, Kentucky, Tax Rolls, 1797-1816.  Heritage Quest, Microfilm No. V20-72 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen).  The more you work with the tax lists, the more you realize how sloppy, inconsistent, and incomplete they are.  Don't read them absolutely literally, and don't conclude that because someone is absent for a year or more that they are not in the county.  People were occasionally exempted from taxes, for a variety of reasons (e.g., old age, poverty, service to the community, widowhood, etc.).  Below, a grey cell means that datum was not taken that year.  The date the list was turned in to the county clerk by the "lister" (tax collector) was not recorded after 1811.

The county was divided into two districts, but the tax lists did not distinguish between them every year.  If an individual occurs on both sides of the 1806-1807 change (from N-S to E-W), it can be helpful in locating them in today's Christian, Todd, or Trigg Cos.  The tax lists reflect the two districts in these years:
1799 No. 1 and No. 2
1801 North/No. 1 and South/No. 2
1804-1806 North and South
1807-1809 East/No. 1 and West/No. 2

We obviously have two (or more) Samuel's here, and the big question is:  How does the Samuel THOMPSON who married Matilda BRADLEY relate to the Samuel THOMPSON who married Polly READER?  The fact that Elizabeth THOMPSON supposed daughter of Samuel and Mary married in 1806 in Christian Co., KY, makes it almost certain that her parents were in Christian Co. in 1806.  So which Samuel is which on this list?  Or are they the same person?  That is, was Matilda BRADLEY the second wife of the Samuel who married Mary?  Or was the Samuel who married Matilda son of the Samuel who married Mary (and/or Elizabeth?)?
