    Ann Thompson and George Nimon Family of Maryville, Blount County, Tennessee
    From the book, "Thompsons of Early Blount County"
    pg. 200

    Ann/Anne THOMPSON, Area VI, District 12, possible daughter of Isaac THOMPSON (Sr) page 10.
    b. ca 1792 d. between 1860/70, Blount Co., TN married. George NIMON (various spellings), 13 Jan. 1819, in Blount Co., TN.
    children:

    Jacob NIMON, b. ca 1821
    Daughter, b. ca 1820/25, gone pre 1850
    Jefferson NIMON, b ca. 1825 [Gene’s note; married Margaret Elizabeth Breakbill]
    Margaret NIMON, b. ca 1824
    Daughter, b. ca 1825/30
    Susan Nimon, b. ca 1830
    George b. ca 1832


    [Note from Gene Brakebill - Compare information with page 4 of NEWMAN/NIMAN material. {Bible records of George Newman.}]

    1819 - Marriage records show that an Any THOMPSON md. G. NEMON on 13 Jan. in Blount Co. “Any” is
    seen as Ann and Anne, while "G. NEMON" was George NEMON (NIMON) (NEUMAN)
    (NEWMAN) (NEYMAN) (NEIGHMAN), etc. Other descendants of this family group spell the name
    NEYMAN, but since George’s obituary spells it NIMON, this is the spelling which is used here.
    1830 - George and Anne show up as
    011001-2210001 - George NEUMAN, page 303.
    Anne’s age seems to be off by 10 years.

    1840 - George shows up as George NEIGHMAN, page 109, as
    01011001-01111001 -

    1845 - George NIMON acted as attorney for James THOMPSON, dec’d. formerly of Nails Creek and s/o
    Isaac Sr., who had died in Washington Co., IN. George NIMON sold his land in Blount Co., 10 A. in
    Dist. 13, for James’ heirs, all of Washington Co., on 9 Sept.

    1847 - George NIMAN was listed as owning land which bordered that purchased by James THOMPSON on
    4 Jan. from John HAFLEY. The land was described as being in Dist. 12 on Little River. This was
    not the James who was s/o Isaac, but was the James who lived on Crooked Creek and Pistol Creek
    prior to moving to this area. He is seen in Area V, District 9.

    1850 - George NEWMAN shows up in Dist 12, pg 195, dw. 1417, as:
    George NEWMAN 59 TN
    Anne 58
    Margaret 26
    George 18
    Melinda 30
    Susan 20
    Matilda MOORE 5

    The ages of Margaret and young George Harvey seen to be off a little between the 1850 and 1860 census?

    1860 - George shows up as: Dist. 12, pg. 26, dw. 197
    George NEIGHMAN, 69 TN
    Ann 70 VA
    Margaret 30
    Harvy/Harry 25 (most likely George Harvey)
    Matilda MOORE 14

    1870 - George seemingly has been widowed, as he shows up as
    George NIMON 79 farmer TN
    Margaret 40 TN Keeping house
    Matilda MOORE 22 without occupation
    Lawson MOORE 9
    Francis MOORE 3
    Emma L. MOORE 1

    No cemetery records have been found for Ann.

    1875 - George, listed as George NIMON, died on 3 Jan 1875, according to his obituary originally appearing
    in the Knoxville Daily Chronicle on 5 June 1875, and reprinted in Tennessee Ancestors, Vol. 6, #1,
    April 1990. pg 75, submitted by Pollyanna CREEKMOORE.


    And it is stated that George Nimon died in his home in Blount Co. near Logan’s Chapel. He was 86 years old (or b. 1789). However, most records show him to be b. after 1790. He was born in a "fort built for protection against the Indians, where McTEER’s Mill now stands, about three miles from the place of his death."

    It also stated that George's father had been killed accidently when George was only two years old, which would have been either 1791 or 1793, depending upon which birth record is correct. And apparently they were still living in the fort at the time, for it was later that the mother left the fort and settled on the family farm where George continued to live. Neither parent was named in the obituary, nor was his wife nor his children.

    He most likely belongs to the others with the same spellings who lived in the neighborhood, yet George’s name does not appear in the family records. However, these records are seemingly not entirely accurate nor complete, so it seems quite likely he was of this same family. Aside from the fact that they lived in the same area, many of them intermarried as the preceding chart shows. It also shows the most likely relationship for George with the others of this name.

    One reason for this concern is the fact that there is an earlier Margaret THOMPSON involved. According to the appendix to Ms. LITTLE’s Cemetery records, Jacob NIEMAN, who d. 1801, had married. Margaret THOMPSON, yet according to some family records, Margaret may have married. Michael NEUMAN. However, Michael may have marriedd. Sarah Catherine JOHNSON instead. There seems to have been some question about Michael’s marriage.

    From our research so far through 2001, we have found from Knox County Court Records, Jacob NIMON died in 1793. His son was about 2 years old. From the Will of Jacob THOMAS, dated 1804, Margaret, Jacob Thomas' daughter, is named as Margaret NUMAN. Margaret was named as Excuetor with Jacob THOMAS & Henry THOMAS as her securites. In later records Margaret THOMAS NUMAN and her son George moved out of McTeer's Fort onto a farm nearby. Michael NEIMAN was married to Catherine and it is unknown what her maiden name was at this time. We do not know what the relationship was between Jacob NIMON and Michael NEIMAN.
    HOME


    Since Jacob died in 1801, [1793], and we find Margaret NYMAN paying taxes on 100 A. in Capt. BOGLE’s Co., and Michael NYMAN paying taxes on 80 A. plus one white poll in both 1800 and 1801, again in Capt. BOGLE’s Co., it would seem that Margaret had marriedd Jacob, not Michael who was still alive.

    Which means that Michael must have md. Sarah Catherine JOHNSON. [As this time we do not know the full name of Michael's wife Catherine.] And, in 1830, Michael must have died 1820 [died 1818] for there is Catharine (born 1760/70) in the census.

    According to a NEYMAN, descendant of these NIMONS, Jacob was the one who md. Margaret THOMPSON, and he stated she was from Rockbridge Co., VA. and was d/o Isaac THOMPSON (Sr). No marriage records were found for this couple in Virginia marriages, and since Jacob is said to have served in PA rather then VA, it is questionable, although certainly possible. And perhaps Mr. NEYMAN has further proof which he didn’t mention. He also has George’s birthdate as being 29 Jan. 1791, which if correct, would show the obituary to be wrong. Since Michael and Margaret (undoubtedly widow of Jacob) were the only ones who show up as early as 1801, it would seem one of them was father of George. If this is so, it must have been Jacob since Michael lived until 1820. [1818] Which means George was about 10 when his father was killed. Therefore it would be interesting to know who Margaret THOMPSON was.


    [Above message we think has been cleared up now due to the further court records found. I am leaving the above paragraph in so that what was written about NIMON and THOMPSON in THOMPSON Family information is noted. But in the hopes that researchers will reliaze that in 2001 we now have correct informtion on some of the past discrepancies.]
    [Typed 03 Mar 1999 from copies of Book, “Thompsons of Early Blount County” with notes from Gene.]

    Isaac THOMPSON (Sr) Area VI, District 12
    s/o Ralph THOMPSON Page 1

    b. 10 January 1754, Fredrick Co., VA.
    d. 10 Oct. 1836, Blount Co., TN
    married Mary “Dolly” DUFF, 13 June 1786, Rockbridge Co., VA by the Rev. Samuel CARRICK.

    Known children:
    James W. THOMPSON, b. ca 1790
    Isaac THOMPSON (Jr), b. 1799

    Probable children:
    Isaiah THOMPSON, b. ca 1797
    Ann/Anne THOMPSON, b. ca 1792

    Ralph THOMPSON wrote his will 17 Dec.1769 in Fredrick Co., VA, and it was proved in court on 05
    March 1771. His will mentioned his eldest son, George, a James THOMPSON, and son Isaac as above.
    Ralph’s wife, Ann, also mentioned. Ralph had gotten a land grant in 1764 on the west bank of Opeckon
    Creek in Frederick Co.

    This is mentioned here because Isaac, after his marriage, removed to Blount Co., nothing is seemingly
    known of James and George. And, although it may be pure coincidence, supposedly Mary (REESE)
    BRABSON who had lost her husband in Fredrick Co., (although in an area which became Berkeley Co., W. VA) is said to have md. either a James or a George THOMPSON as her second husband, and he was "of Rockbridge Co., VA", even though she most likely md. in Frederick Co. The question is whether or not Ralph’s sons, James and George, were the same James or George who md. Mary BRABSON. Probably not, but it seems worth considering at least.

    1786 - Isaac THOMPSON (Sr) md. Mary DUFF in Rockbridge Co. She was the d/o Roger DUFF and
    Mary. "Dolly" as she was called by her father, was b. March 1772 and d. in Blount Co. 31 Jan. 1855. Her
    name has also mistakenly been seen as Margaret.

    1787 - Issac THOMPSON (Sr), Roger DUFF, and the Rev. Samuel CARRICK were all seen to be
    neighbors in the 1787 tax/census returns, of Rockbridge Co., VA.

    1801 - On a couple of scraps of paper found in the ALLEN papers in the Knoxville Historical Society’s
    library in Knoxville, it was learned that Margaret (should be Mary) DUFF THOMPSON, w/o Isaac was
    living in Tennessee in 1801. It is to be assumed her husband was with her. The source of this information is
    unknown.

    [Note from Gene - Mary (REESE) (BRABSON) THOMPSON had a daughter Jane, who married
    Peter BRAKEBILL (born in Berkley Co., VA/WVA) Mary THOMPSON was living with Peter Brakbill & wife Jane, in Murray Co., GA. in census 1850. This Peter B. was brother of “my” John B.]
    HOME

    1812/14 - According to the "History of Blount Co., Tennessee". by BURNS, Isaac THOMPSON handled down-stream traffic for Andrew KENNEDY of Blount Co., who made gun powder and sent barges loaded to New Orleans to Andrew JACKSON in the War of 1812.

    1830 - Isaac THOMPSON shows up in Blount Co., [census], on page 300 as:
    0000100001-00000001

    Isaac was 70/80 or b. 1750/60, wife Mary was 50/60 or b. 1770/80, and son Isaac Jr. was 20/30 and
    widowed at this time.

    1836 - Isaac (Sr) died 10 Oct.

    1841/51 - There were a number of trust deeds for a Phillip DONALDSON who put up land in Dist. 14 at
    various times as collateral for debts owed. And several times Mary THOMPSON’S name appears as a
    neighbor.

    1855 - The widow Mary died 31 Jan. 1855.

    According to the book: "Rejected or Suspended Revolutionary Pensions", Isaac felt he was deserving of a
    pension under the Government Act of June 7, 1832. However, his petition was rejected and the reason given
    was that he had not actually been involved in military service, but had packed pork and beef, apparently for
    the troops.

    James W. Thompson
    son of Isaac Thompson

    Area VI, District 12.
    Page 3.
    The first record seen for James was that he had the following children:
    Mary Ann, b. 1803 Rosannah, b. 1806
    Lucinda, b. 1804 James H., b. 1809

    These records had been submitted to the LDS Church in Salt Lake City and had been compiled from records found in the THOMPSON records, found in the Maryville library. As it turns out, the dates are incorrect and only Rosannah and James H. were James’ children, Mary Ann and Lucinda were daughters-in-law.

    James W. was b. ca 1790 in either VA or TN, depending upon how soon after 1787 his parents left Rockbridge Co., VA. He d. 1831-37 in Washington Co., IN. (Should be Illinois I think) He md. in Blount Co., 10 August 1815,
    Hannah Miller LOGAN, who was the d/o David and Hannah (ROBINSON) LOGAN who md. 27 April 1790 in Washington Co., VA, according to marriage records.
    Hannah M. was b. 2 Nov. 1791 and d. 16 April 1856 in Washington Co., IN. (Illinois)

    [Note from Gene - I believe that some of these Washington Co., IN should be Washington Co., Illinois - maybe not all of them.]
    Rosannah THOMPSON, b. 1816
    Hester A. THOMPSON, b. 1817
    John Duff THOMPSON, b. 1818
    Minerva J. THOMPSON, b. 1819
    David Robinson THOMPSON, b. 1820
    Isaac N. THOMPSON, b. ca 1825
    James H. THOMPSON, b. 1826/30
    Hannah E. THOMPSON, b. 1826/30

    1827 - James THOMPSON, living in Blount Co., sold land on Little River to Joseph RAMSEY 11 June
    1827, and to Thomas McHENRY on 31 Jan. 1828. Since he seems to have been the only James
    THOMPSON living in the area, it would seem that this was James W., s/o Isaac (Sr).

    1830 - James appears to show up in Blount Co. on page 300 of the census, very near Isaac Sr, and as
    112001-101001



    Since Washington Co., IN, (Should be Illinois?) cemetery records claim he died in 1819 in Indiana, it seems important to take a closer look at this reading to show the likelihood of his being in Blount Co. as late as 1830.
    1 male 30/40, b. 1790/1800 - James, b. ca 1790
    1 male 10/15, b. 1815/1820 - John D., b. 1818
    1 male 10/15, b. 1815/1820 - David R., b. 1820
    1 male 5/10, b. 1820/1825 - Isaac N., b. ca 1825
    1 male und.5, b. 1825/1830 - James H., b. 1826/30
    1 fem. 30/40, b. 1790/1800 - Hannah M., b. 1791
    1 fem. 10/15, b. 1815/1820 - Rosannah, b. 1816
    1 fem. und.5, b. 1825/1830 - Hannah E., b. 1826/30

    Isaiah Thompson Area VI, District 12
    probable s/o Isaac THOMPSON (Sr) Page 9.

    b. ca 1797, VA per 1850 census.
    d. after 1850, possibly in IL
    md. 13 Jan. 1819, Hannah PHILLIPS, by George EWING, J. P.

    children:
    William THOMPSON, b. 1819 TN
    Elizabeth THOMPSON, b. 9 March 1822, in TN
    Hannah E. THOMPSON, b. ca 1830 IN
    John L. THOMPSON, b. ca 1834 IN
    James J. THOMPSON, b. ca 1840, IL (poss. James E.)

    1819 - Isaiah THOMPSON and Hannah PHILLIPS were md. on 13 Jan. by George EWING the
    same J. P. who had md. Isaac (Jr) and his two wives. Hannah was b. 22 Jan. 1797 and was d/o
    Abraham and his wife Sarah Elizabeth (or Elizabeth Sarah) (BURNS) PHILLIPS.

    There were a great number of marriages between children of the early PHILLIPS, WHEELER, THOMPSON, NIMON (many spellings), LOGAN, and other families who lived in these four districts north east of Maryville--described here as Area VI. And rather than attempt to explain the various relationships, a chart has been inserted which will show the relations between these families with much more clarity, (See next page)
    1826 - Isaiah THOMPSON and Peter BREAKBILL [note from Gene - This is the Peter B. who md. Jane
    Thompson. See Page 1] witnessed the will of David LOGAN, written 8 May. David LOGAN [Note
    from Gene - David Logan’s grandson Alexander md Lucinda Breakbill], was father of Hannah
    Miller LOGAN who md. in 1815, James W. THOMPSON, and Hannah and James then moved to
    Washington Co., IN. [From Gene - Illinois?]

    1830 - Isaiah and family had disappeared from Blount Co. when the census taker came around. They do not
    show up in cemetery records, and no further sign of them is found in the county. However, from the
    1850 census, we learn that in 1830 he was in Indiana. The only Isaiah THOMPSON found in Indiana
    was in Montgomery Co., page 10. Unless Isaiah was elsewhere and did not show up on census
    indexes, this was probably the above Isaiah.

    It was discovered that many of these other neighbors of Isaiah THOMPSON ended up in Washington Co., IL. [Note from Gene - Many LOGAN’S went there.] And upon investigation, it was learned that Isaiah was living among them.

    1840 - Isaiah, seen in the index as Isaak?, was found on page 223 of Washington Co., IL. And all around
    him were his neighbors from Blount Co., some of whom had been there since before 1830.

    1850 - He shows up in Washington Co., IL, page 131, dw. 477, as:

    Isaih THOMPSON, 53, VA farmer
    Hannah 53 TN John L. 16 farmer, IN (John Logan?)
    Hannah E. 20 IN James J. 10 IL

    I am very grateful for the past research that has been done on the Thompson and Niman Family which helped tremendously in helping all of us cousins know where to look for more records. We still have more to check into and as we gather more information hopefully all the related families will benefit. And much appreciation goes to H. Gene Brakebill for his sharing of his research on our family. Barb



    **********************************************************************
    A note from a Moore Family researcher is interesting. So I copied our correspondence;

    Hi Janet,

    My web site is below on Neiman and Thomas Families. I think I remember seeing a Moore name come up somewhere in the court records. I am sort of chuckling to myself because of all the research I have done I don't remember seeing the census information. I will go look at what I have at the site and see if it clicks in at all on the Moore name. I have not been doing any genealogy for a few months and can't hardly remember anything about the families. I need to get back into it.

    Subject: George Neighman 1840 census Blount Co Tn


    Barbara, I am working on the Moore family of Blount Co Tn. On the 1850 census of Blount Co., Matilda Moore is living with George Nieman and his wife Margaret. She continues to live with them throughout most of her life and has children and obviously never marries. On the 1850 census George is 59 years old which would put his birth at 1791. Matilda Moore is then 14 according to the census. On the 1850 census she is 5 years old which would put her birth at 1845. On the 1840 census there is George Nieghman, Next door is Lewis Nieghman, a David More and and Sally Moore. Matilda Moore I suspect is a granddaught but it never says on the census what her relationship to George is. Would you have any idea at all about this Matilda Moore? If you follow her through the census years she is always living with the Nieman, Neuman, Neighman family until obviously George and wife Margaret (?) die but Matilda remains at the same location after his death.

    1870 census Blount Co Tn distirct 12 page 6:

    35-34 Neiman, George 79

    Mack 10
    Lau (?) 8
    Odie 4 who married Fannie Bell Evans
    Sopha 9/12

    She also had a Josie and Lula after 1880.

    There are many stories about Matilda Moore and the Neiman family but none tell the relationship between the two families. Do you have any info which might help? I would greatly appreciate if you do. Matilda Moore is my sons great great grandmother. Thanks, Janet Morgan Brown



    Hi,

    This is intriguing. I so far have not heard back from anyone about Matilda. I have
    been so busy goofing around on getting the early Thomas and Neiman information
    straight that I have not paid much attention to who Matilda could be. I was able to
    prove up what I have so far. Still missing pieces. And is confusing on all the Neimans
    and Thomas'. There was so much bad information. And I have not really worked on the
    family for awhile either. So many other things going on. But I will see if I might
    have something somewhere that could help us.

    I looked into the George Neiman Family Bible info I have on line. I pieced together
    the children of George and Margaret Thomas Neiman from that and some census
    information. Also from other family members. You have really looked at the census
    information so I know that makes a difference when you look into neighbors. I would
    venture to guess also that there was a Sally or Sarah Neiman and she married Thomas
    Moore. A daughter of Matilda's age would fit.

    You know, it is the little bits and pieces like this that help with the total picture.
    We can further branch out and maybe find answers. So sure, I will help. You might have
    the little tidbit that gets me further info too!

    Barb

    Barbara, Thank you so much for all the info. I have been pouring over it.
    I will tell you what I know about Matilda. This is the family story. This
    is what my x husbands family told me. We were married 23 years and I helped
    his sister work on the tree for a long time. Matilda Moore was a beautiful
    redheaded woman and men would beat a path to her door. She lived on the
    Neighman or Neimann place and had her kids but never married. Supposedly
    her favorite man was a black man who was a neighbor. The only black family
    that was neighbors that I can find is the family of Albert Romx or Romax.
    There are also rumors that a neighman man may be the father of some of her
    children. Also, at her funeral in 1910 a mulatta woman came. She was
    dressed really nice. Lawson Moore (Matilda's oldest son) met her at the
    funeral or church door and would not let her come in and she told him that
    Matilda is just as much my mother is she is yours and forced her way in. My
    x husband's sister remember her aunt taking her to visit this mulatta lady
    in Knoxville and that they would visit and hug but she never understood the
    relationship but now realizes that it was Sopha,, Matilda's daughter.
    Anyway, I had not worked on this for a long time and then my kids asked me
    to work on their dads side of the family. They are descendent from her son
    Odie or Odam or Oden who married Fannie Bell Evans. We will probably never
    know who the father's of all of the kids are unless there is someone alive
    who knows the true story. The immediate family is very closed mouth about
    it. I do think that Sally Moore is probably her mother and that she was a
    neimann and perhaps her name was Sarah and Sally was a nick name. All of
    this is speculation and we all know how speculation can really mess up good
    genealogical research. It is very intriguing to say the least. I was
    hopeful when I saw in one of the deeds that there was additional housing on
    the property of George Neimann. The thing that puzzles me is that in 1880
    Matilda Moore is still there but the are no Neimanns. What do you think and
    can you help me put the pieces of the puzzle together. By the was there was
    a Sally Kilpatrick who married a Thomas Moore on Sept 8, 1823 in Blount
    County. Wonder if this is the say Sally Moore on the 1830 census and 1840
    census? Thanks Janet Morgan Brown morgan52@earthlink.net

    In this Court Record there is a Michal Ninman and James Moor serving jury
    duty together. You mentioned a David Moor and Sally Moor living next door to
    Lewis Nieghman. Michael we think is George Neiman's uncle. But we don't know for
    sure. Jacob Neiman d. 1793 married Margaret Thomas. Their son George Neiman married
    Amy Thompson.

    > http://www.geocities.com/blynnfitzz/ThompsonNimon.html

    Thompson and Neiman information. Which has a few errors but I tried to
    clear these up from what I know with notes at the site.

    > http://www.geocities.com/blynnfitzz/NeimonGeorgeBibleInfo.html
    And George Neiman Bible information I will try and look into Moore information. It sure
    seems likely that one of George and Amy Thompson Neiman's daughter's had married a
    Moore and Matilda might be a granddaughter.

    Meantime maybe you will find something that will help with the information
    I have on-line? I hope.
