CASWELL COUNTY NC 1777-1877 HISTORICAL ABSTRACTS OF MINUTES OF CASWELL COURT,Katharine Kerr Kendall, 1976. Minutes of Pleas & Quarter Sessions
Pittsylvania Co VA DB 5
The marriage date to Judith Bolton of 13 Jun 1781, is likely the Bond date.
Pittsylvania Co Land Tax Lists, 1783. Phillip Thomas is listed with 42 acres from Wm Thomas.
Caswell Co NC Deeds:
I previously had a number of records posted to this Philip that were not his. There was another Philip Thomas, perhaps close to the same age, but more likely some older, that lived in Halifax Co. at this time. The Halifax Philip Thomas died circa 1803. I do not know his relationship to the family of William Thomas, but I suspect there was one.
This deed is a bit ambiguous. It says to Philip Thomas of Halifax, but when it is sold, Philip Thomas of Caswell sells the land and he signs "Ph. Thomas" which is how the Philip Thomas, son of William & Joyce Thomas, signed his named on other records. I have included it with both Phillips, but I believe it must be this one.
