*The county was divided into just two districts:  from 1804 to 1806, into North and South Districts; beginning in 1807, into East and West Districts.  The change tells us that William was in the northwest quadrant of Christian County, which is confirmed by the location of the Tradewater River.

p. p. Date Motions
 19 39 12 Mar 1810 William Thompson who stands bound by recognizance to appear here on this day to answer to the charge exhibited against him by Mary Dunning for having begot upon her body a bastard child and on consideration of the Court and for reasons appearing to Court it is ordered that prosecution be dismissed.
This item may apply to our subject or to the William THOMPSON of Pond River.  However, all the DUNNINGs on the tax rolls of the county lived on the Tradewater River or on the Muddy Fork of the Little River (the latter was then in western Christian Co. and is now in eastern Trigg Co.), making it much more likely that the William THOMPSON involved with Mary DUNNING was the one who lived on the Tradewater River, not the one who lived in eastern Christian Co., on the Pond River.
