I am looking for information on James Thom b.C1790, Forfar.
He was the son of John Thom (Ploughman) and Helen Barclay. He married Jane Mackie 25 Sept 1813.
I have recently discovered he served in the 2nd Batt. of the 72nd Foot Reg.
Does anybody have any info on any related family of the above, or know how I find out about military records apart from actually going to Kew?
