Surnames: Thomas, Moss, Clark, Slaughter
I am actively researching Capt. Mark Thomas VA line of infantry commanded by Col. George Slaughter, under Gen. George Rodgers Clark. He traveled to Louisville with re-enforcements for Clark in 1779. Capt. Thomas was discharged in 1781 and stayed in Louisville with his family until 1795 or 97. He then moved to Monroe Co., IL and died in 1813 in St. Louis. His wife's name was Ann; he had 4 children - Elizabeth Thomas Muse Johnston, Claiborne Thomas, James Thomas, and Judy Thomas Moss. All the children resided in Jefferson County, MO around 1800. Any and all information on Capt. Thomas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Barbara

There is only one Mark Thomas in the "Index of Rev. War Pension Applications in the National Archives". You probably already have this information but just in case you don't:

Thomas, Mark, Va., R18446: Va. Half Pay. *See N.A. Acc. No. 874-050172 Half Pay, Mark Thomas.

Note: The "R" infront of the pension application # (in this case) probably means the last heir/widow who applied was rejected possibly due to lack of documentation to prove relationship to soldier.

*"These instructions refer to a separate series of pension application files that are also in Record Group 15. The records in these files relate mainly to claims made by heirs under an act of Congress approved July 5, 1832 (4 Stat. 563), which provided half-pay pensions for Virginia veterans of the Revolutionary War, and to claims made by heirs for arrears de veterans of Virginia and other States under other pension acts...Abstracts of their contents are in Gaius Marcus Brumbaugh, "Revolutionary Ward Records, Volume 1: Virginia (Washington, 1936)."

Hope you find something here that you didn't already have.
