2.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #147-148 of 151; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 AL Sumter Co. Roll 15 pp. 75/156B-157A Ln. 4 Silas Thompson 100 010 - 000 010 no slaves
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Son A
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = Silas (b. 1809)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Mary Ann (b. 1819)
Silas is in the wrong age class, and the child is the wrong gender, but given his neighbors, I'm inclined to believe this is our subject's household.  Listed just below Silas's brothers, John Henry, Abraham, and Ralph; and listed one line above Silas's brother Francis B., who is one line above an Isaac G. THOMPSON, whose relationship is unknown.  This enumerator did not record occupations, for anyone.
