I've seen lots of profiles of Thomas on Ancestry and elsewhere that claim he was in the Revolutionary War, with some also giving him the rank of Captain. I'm having some trouble substantiating any of this. There is a pension application for a widow of a Thomas Arthur ("Squirrel Tom") but this is not the same person. Other applications for John Runyan, John Edwards, Carey Toney, Henry McDaniel, William Martin, and John S. Alverson mention enlisting in Bedford under "Captain Thomas Arthur" and either Col. Charles Lynch, Lieutenant Joseph Hendrick, or Col. Alexander Parker. Could this be Thomas 1730 - 1819?
