I am looking for information about Thompson O Brown born 1825 in Bardstown, Ky. His family is reported to have moved to Shelby Co., Illinois in about 1835. This area of Illinois became Sullivan, Moultrie County, Illinois.
Thompson married Elizabeth Hampton Sept. 16, 1847.
According to my grandmother, Thompson's father may have been Charlie, grandfather William and great grandfather Johnathon. The family was in Woodford County, Ky before 1790 and moved to the Bardstown area later.
Thompson's mother may have been a Cherokee.
Thompson or his father may have had brothers named Huston, Newton and Hamp or Hampton.
Hamp stayed on farm in Bardstown after others left for Illinois, and his daughter married a Demerick.
Any information about his family in Kentucky will be greatly appreciated.
