1 female 26-44 1765-1784 = Temperance (b. 1767/8)
We know that William should be in Green Co., KY, in 1810 and that this is the only William Thompson household recorded in Green Co., KY, in 1810.  Either there is a lot about this family we don't understand, the census taker made several mistakes, or this is a different William Thompson and our subject was simply missed in the 1810 Census.

Is this William "Jr." or William "Sr."?  Does anyone know what the numbers mean?

These data indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 males 10-15 1804-1810 = Peter
= James
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Samuel (b. ca. 1800)

1 female 10-15 1804-1810 = Susan
1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1775 = Temperance (b. 1767/8)
*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."
Elizabeth, John, Polly, and Hannah are known to be married by 1820, that leaves Samuel, James, Peter, and Susan.
