  • Notes 
    • From the Burch Family Book, pg 10, "Though but a few years past his maturity when the Revolution began, he became a prominent leader. He was the seventh son of Stephen Thomas."

      This also from the Burch book, pgs 10, 11: "Bishop Gregg in his History of the Old Cheraws says; 'Tristram Thomas was a name respected and honored by all classes on the Pedee. General Thomas was modest and retiring in disposition, but firm and decided whenever principal was involved in the conduct of life. Sturdy by habit, and resolute in character, he was happily fitted by nature for the perils and labors of the Revolution. Possessed of a solid understanding, a practical turn of mind, and virtuous principals, he faithfully discharged the duties incumbent upon him in every station to which he was called in the councils of the State. He was the first Brigadier General on the Pedee after the war 1794. He lived to a good ripe old age, universally esteemed, and died at his residence at Ellerbe’s Mills between Society Hill and Bennettsville in Marlborough Dist. In 1817.”
