Evans & Thompson of Early Warrick Co IN

I need help in determining the parents and siblings of the following two couples who married in Warrick County, Indiana:

William Taylor Thompson married Mary (Polly Ann) Evans 29 Oct 1842.
Jacob Thompson married Rhoda Evans 16 Nov 1844.

I speculate that Wm and Jacob were brothers and that Mary/Polly and Rhoda were sisters. These two families left Warrick County between 1845 and 1850 and were in Wapello County Iowa for the 1850 census. Jacob and Rhoda later went west and settled in Linn County Oregon.
William Thompson was born ca 1819 in Kentucky (in 1880 census his father was given as born KY and mother MD). Wm died in Wapello in ca 1894.
Jacob Thompson was born ca 1822 in Kentucky (in the 1880 census his parents were given as born in MD.)

From the 1850 census in Wapello County, Iowa and other records, I speculate the following Evans were likely siblings:
Polly Ann (Mary) Evans born ca 1821 Indiana (father given as born KY and mother NC)
Rhoda Evans born ca 1823 Indiana (father given as born KY and mother NC)
Henry H. Evans born ca 1825 Indiana
Sarah A. Evans born ca 1830 Indiana (father born KY mother NC)
Isaac Evans born ca 1841 Indiana
Caroline Evans born ca 1845 Indiana

There was a James Evans in the Warrick County census of 1820, 1830, and 1840. He may be the James Evans who married Sally Garret in Warrick Co in 1818. From the census years, it would seem that James (if it was the same James each census year) might have had 11 children born between years 1811 and 1840 (two sons and nine daughters). Does anyone have information on this James Evans or on any other early Evans families of Warrick County Indiana? Does anyone have information on the early Thompson families of Warrick County Indiana?

Thank you in advance for any help, suggestions, or exchange of information.
