"May have been born 16 Jun 1750. Thomas Spencer, Jr. entered the Revolutionary War as 2nd Lieutenant, Capt. John Martin's Company, 4th Virginia Regiment, Continental Army, on 23 February 1776; appointed 1st Lieutenant on September 28, 1776; resigned in July 1778; rejoined, and served as 1st Lieutenant for 18 months; promoted to Captain, and then Major, serving in Lafayette's Division, Brigade of General Robert Lawson of Prince Edward County; participated in battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Guilford Court House, and surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. Widow Lucy (Watkins) Spencer applied for pension on April 24, 1838, stating her late husband, Thomas Spencer, had served as a Lieutenant, Captain, and Major, having enlisted in Charlotte County where he died July 4, 1806, total service 21 months, 28 days in the Virginia Line. Among those mentioned in her application were Edward Watkins of Petersburg, VA, her brother; Major Samuel F. Spencer (Thomas' brother); Col. William B. Watkins of Charlotte (daughter Susannah's husband); and William I. (or J.) Watkins, J. P., of Charlotte County. Thomas Spencer Jr became the guardian of his nephew Thomas Harris Spencer 1 Nov 1784 after the death of Sion. Thomas became his niece Elizabeth Julia's guardian 6 Mar 1786 after Sion died. An 1836 list of the heirs of Thomas, names Elizabeth Richardson, Martha Morton, Mary H. Allen, Sarah Watkins, Sion Spencer, William W. Spencer, and the children of Thomas Jefferson Spencer, dec'd. viz. James, Thomas and Lucy Ann Spencer. Thomas Spencer, Jr. appeared in Charlotte County Tax Lists for 1779 and 1782, in the latter with 3 white titheables and 8 blacks. Thomas Spencer, Jr. wrote his will on April 3, 1798, when he was about to have an ear operation and thought he might not survive it. The will was proved on September 1, 1806 in Charlotte County. The 1810 census for Charlotte County listed a Mrs. Lucy Spencer with 1 female over 45, 2 males and 1 female 16-26, and 2 females 10-16.


Col. Thomas Spencer, the progenitor of the Spencer family, was born in 1751 and died in 1806. He entered as Second Lieutenant, Captain John Martin's Company 4th Virginia Regiment of the Continental Army for the War of the Revolution on February 23, 1778; later joined the Army and served as First Lieutenant for eighteen months and was promoted successively to Captain and Major, serving in the Brigade of General Robert Lawson of Prince Edward County, in Lafayette's Division; participated in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Guilford Court House and in the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. Col. Spencer married at the old Spencer homestead at then Fariston P. O. in Charlotte County. His two wives were sisters. His 8 children were all by his second wife.


This day, Captain Josiah Le Grand of Charlotte Co., personally appeared before me a J. of P. for said county--made statement of facts, commencing with his own knowledge and belief, touching the military service of the late Col. Thomas Spencer of Charlotte Co. in the Rev. war:--That he (deponent) is 74 years of age, and was a Soldier, and attached to the Commissary department. That he was intimately acquainted with the said Col. Spencer, while in service; that he has distinct recollection when said Spencer entered the Contl. army as a Lieutenant in the company commanded by Capt. John Brent. That in the month of March, he marched from Charlotte Co. for Portsmouth, Va., served there awhile, and was ordered to the North. In early part of 1780, said Spencer returned from the Northern army, either on furlough or as supernumerary. After absence from Charlotte Co. for more than three years, he saw said Spencer shortly after his return, and was informed that he still belonged to the Army.


At this time great exertion was being made to raise volunteers for the army, and deponent entered in the Brigade of Genl. Lawson. That he marched from Morris Old Ordinary, in the county of Prince Edward, in month of June, 1780, and while on their march in the direction of Petersburg, Va. said Thomas Spencer made his appearance in the county of Amelia, and assumed the command of Major of the Regt. to which deponent was attached. The said Regt. was stationed in the neighborhood of Petersburg while deponent was in the service, and he was discharged in Nov., 1780, being the said Major Thomas Spencer in Lawsons Brigade.


The said deponent again entered the army in Feb., 1781 and was attached to the commissary department. His duties called him to headquarters of the Southern army in N. C. and a few days after the battle of Guilford, he again met Major Thomas Spencer in the army.
