Thanks for the info. I have seen other records for the city of Lexington where the same spelling was used. Thomas served as constable for the city and county of Fayette. Most of the records I have found concern payment for his labors and use this spelling.
Oddly, a number of mentions in the local paper use the proper spelling.
Now if I could only figure out who his wife was. I have about 30 mentions of Thomas in original sources / records but never a word about a spouse. Must have had at least one but she seems to be the invisible woman.
