Samuel THOMPSON was Head of Household (HoH) on the 1830 census Shrewsbury Twp, Monmouth Co on p. 424 with a family: 2m (5-10), 1m (15-20), 1m (40-50) [prob. Samuel],1 m (50-60), 1f (5-10), 2f (15-20), 1 f (20-30), and 1f (40-50) [poss. Lucy POTTS]. These age categories correlate closely with the Samuel Thompson family entries on the 1840 & 1850 census, Washington Twp, Warren Co, NJ. Also on the 1830 Shrewsbury Twp census were HoH Henry & Joseph Thompson. Their relationship, if any, to each other and/or to Samuel is unknown to me. It is worth noting that the Samuel Thompson of interest had sons named Henry and Joseph, too young to have been the HoHs in 1830.
Entries on 1850 Warren Co census show that Samuel was b. 1782 and his wife Lucy in 1788, both in NJ.
An undocumented Thompson family history holds that Samuel m. Lucy Potts in 1807 but no location is stated. While the family is well documented in Washington Twp, Warren Co from 1840 to 1900, nothing is known to me about the family's pre-1840 location. Would like to exchange information with Thompson & Potts family researchers who may have knowledge of the above.
