James THOMPSON in Court Order Books A-B, Christian County, Kentucky
Synopsis:

James THOMPSON appears in the County Court records beginning 21 Jul 1798.  On 18 Mar 1800, he became a Justice of the Peace for the County, and on 20 Mar 1800, he was given the power to conduct marriages.  On several occasions, James posted bond for William THOMPSON to hold the office of Constable.  In 1804, he is called one of the two "eldest" of the Justices of the Peace and is recommended to the Governor for the office of Sheriff.  In 1806 and 1808, James is again recommended to the Governor to be Sheriff.  In 1809, James received a commission from the Governor to become Sheriff of Christian County (William THOMPSON was one of the securities for his bond).  From 1800-1809, James had been in regular attendance at the County Courts, but once he had received his commission to be Sheriff, he resigned his position as J.P. and ceased his attendance at the County Courts.  Some time between January and August of 1811, James ceased to be Sheriff and ended up in litigation with his securities for that office and with the County Undertaker.
