Irene first appears on the 1860 Wayne Co. census, page 352 (Waverly P.O.) in the family of Greenberry and Margaret with I assume their three children Daniel, Martha and Elizabeth Ann - then follows Irene age 23, Mary Ann 3 and Talbott 4 months.

When I went back to my census notes I see Irene is not listed on the 1870 census in the family of Greenberry, page 103, Dwelling 201 but Raney age 35 appears (Irene of the 1860 census?). There are four additional children born since the 1860 census. Margaret would be past child bearing age. The ages 55 and 52 are incorrect as is Berry having been born in Ky.

I am limited on my Wayne Co. census. I only extracted the Thompson's and their neighbors of interest at the time like the New's, Keith's, Godsey's and Branscomb's. It seemed they were close together on the Big South Fork and Little Sinking Creek close to the Pulaski Co. line.

No, I do not think the Wm. J. that married Nancy Keith is a different Wm. that married Mary Flinn. I think they are one and the same. My reasons are: (1) On the 1880 census Wm. had two sons. The 10 year old was Shadrack. Shade Thompson, age 50, died 28 Jan. 1941 (Ky. Certif. 13613). His father and mother were listed as Wm. Thompson and Nancy Keath. The 9 year old was Thomas. (2) The age of the next child was 3 (two, Charlie and Mary R., twins?) and we assume Mary was the dau. of Polly Ann because she was listed as such on the 1910 census (ED 82 or 230), Page 15.
Therefor, Nancy Keith probably died between 1871 and 1877. (It hurts to use words like think, assume, and probably but what is one to do without a marriage or 1870 census) and (3) Wm. G. was 2 months in 1880 and is with Polly Ann on the 1900 census, age 20 (ED 130, Page 6).

The only hole in the above is if the Shadrack that was 10 on the 1880 census is not the "Shade" that died in 1941, age 50.

Thanks for the death certif. numbers for John Jasper and Louisa.

On Naomi "Oma", could she be a dau of Greenberry? George the possible s/o Greenberry named a dau. Oma. Not many Thompson's in Wayne early on. The 1810 census has Dickerson, Alexander and Thomas. The 1820 and 1830 has Leonard Thompson.

According to a "Coffey" History om tje Wayne County Pioneers, Book 4, page 21, Martha Ellen Davis was the d/o Willie Davis and Martha Thompson that married Shelby Coffey on 23 Nov. 1914.
