    • Thompson and Skinner Cemetery
      This cemetery is located in Grant County, about 2 miles on the left side of Denny Road when traveling from KY 36.

      Note: I have not located this cemetery personally. I found the location in Volume III of Virgil Chandler Sr.'s book, Grant County Cemeteries. In addition to the directions in the book, I studied satellite imagery to come up with coordinates of what I "BELIEVE" is the cemetery.

    Liberty Bell, signifying a person in an accepted NSSAR or NSDAR lineage.
    The Liberty Bell displayed here simply acts as a means to easily identify a patriot recognized by the NSDAR or NSSAR who was a participant in the fight for American Independence or a person of direct, recognized lineal descent from a patriot appearing in one or more accepted applications to NSDAR or NSSAR. The image is a "marker" visible in certain tree views and serves no other purpose or meaning.

  • Notes 
    • Some family trees report a second marriage to another "Elizabeth," probably Elizabeth Easton. I have found a record of a marriage between one Napoleon B. Thompson and Elizabeth Easton in Jefferson County, Kentucky on 23 Dec 1866. I have found no plausible evidence of a second marriage. At the time of the above recorded marriage, Napoleon B Thompson and Sarah "Elizabeth" Barnes were both alive and recorded on the 1850 - 1880 Federal Census enumerations in Grant County, Kentucky. From Grant County, Kentucky to Jefferson County, Kentucky is roughly 100 miles and I find it highly unlikely that the Napoleon B Thompson of Jefferson County, KY is the same person as Napoleon B Thompson of Grant County, KY.

      1910 Federal Census, Kentucky, Scott County, Stonewall Voting Precinct(Part of Magesterial District Number 6), for the family of Robert T. Thompson indicates that Napoleon Thompson was born in Virginia and that Elizabeth Barnes was born in Indiana. Robert Thompson's death certificate indicates that both Napoleon and Elizabeth were born in KY (the informant on the death certificate of Robert Thompson was Mrs. R. T. Thompson).
