The biographical sketch in The Compendium of American Genealogy, Vol. VII is the source of most of what we know about Thomas Frederick, Sr. It states that his father was killed by Indians at the beginning of the French and Indian War. He was taken by Indians and lived among them during the period of the French and Indian War, until he was about twelve years old. During the American Revolution, he served with the Pennsylvania Militia Frontier Rangers. After the war he lived in Laurelton, Union County, Pennsylvania until he moved his family to Lisbon, Columbiana County, Ohio.
