  • Notes 
    • Philip Thompson served as a private in Capt. Alney McLean's company in the 1st Regiment of Kentucky Mounted Volunteer militia from 18 Sep - 1 Oct 1812, acting as judge advocate of the regiment. He served as first lieutenant in Capt. James Taylor's company of Kentucky Mounted Volunteer militia from 19 Aug - 14 Nov 1813. He was admitted to the bar, served in the Kentucky House of Representatives, 1814-15, was a member of Congress, 1823-25, and then resumed practice in Owensboro, KY. In 1829 Philip was shot in a duel with Robert Triplett (wife of Virginia Anne Pegram). He swore the near-fatal wound cured him of his rheumatism and a limp. During an arson trial in 1836, a witness named Jefford left the trial, returned with a Bowie knife, and killed Philip outside the courthouse.
