There is a William New family on the 1870 Census, District 5, Monticello, Wayne County Kentucky, September 16, 1870, Page 13 (95). William is 32 years old and was born in Kentucky. His wife, Nancy, was 33 years old and was born in Kentucky. Five children were enumerated with this family: Mary, 10; Sarah, 8; John J., 6; Balzora, 4; and Sarepta, 2. I am unable to locate this family on either the 1860 or 1880 census. How does this William tie into the New family of Wayne County? What became of his family after 1870? Could this William New possibly be William James Thompson, the son of Richard Dickerson Thompson and Lucinda New? William Thompson's first wife was Nancy Keith. They had a son John Jasper born February 19, 1864. I am unable to find the William James Thompson family on the 1870 census. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!
