6.  Willliam Henry Perrin, ed.  1884.  History of Trigg County:  Historical and Biographical.  F.A. Battey Publ. Co., Chicago.  On pp. 207-208, under the heading "Cadiz Precinct":
George S. Wharton was born in Trigg County, two miles east of Cadiz, April 22, 1828.  He is the youngest child of a family of five born to John and Eliza (Smith) Wharton.  His father was born September 21, 1784, in Fauquier County, Va., he died on this farm May 1, 1872; he settled here in 1817, having bought about 700 acres land.  At that time there was little or no timber in the country, that which is here now having grown since the coming of Mr. Wharton to this locality; the timber used for the frame of their residence, which was built in 1854, was grown on this land.  Deer, turkey and other wild game were in abundance, but have long since disappeared.  Mr. Wharton was married November 5, 1867, to Miss Sallie, daughter of James E. Thompson, who, until the adoption of the new Constitution, long held the office of Circuit and County Clerk of Trigg County; he died October 5, 1881, aged seventy-six; their union has been blessed with five children--four sons and one daughter.
What lousy, ambiguous writing.  It was James E. THOMPSON who died 5 Oct 1881 at the age of 76, but George S. WHARTON who was blessed with the five children.
