You were looking for information about Thomas Gadd, Revolutionary Soldier. My aunts researched the Gadd family and found the following -

1. Thomas Gadd was the youngest son of William and Mary (Standiford) Gadd of Blathana Cambria, Upper Gunpowder Hundred, Baltimore County, MD.

2. He was born in 1760 Baltimore County, Maryland (Rev. Deposition Rockcastle County, KY).

3. He was married probably between 1775 and 1779. Wife is unknown.

4. He died between 1834 and 1840 on Clear Creek, Rockcastle County, KY.

5. Children: William Warwick Gadd (born ca 1776-1780 in MD); probable children: Thomas Gadd born 1800 in Virginia; Sarah Ferguson Gilliums (born ca 1780-82) - - - Thomas Gadd signed the marriage bond for Sarah Ferguson and William Gilliams when they were married Dec. 24, 1797.

6. Research Papers:
- Oath of Allegiance
- Sale of Blathana Cambria on Nov. 3, 1789
- Land purchase in Franklin County, VA on Mar. 29, 1792
- Land purchase in Franklin County, VA on Feb. 3, 1794

7. He migrated to Rockcastle County, KY about 1808 and can be found in the 1810 Census of Rockcastle, KY.

8. He was supposed to have purchased land near Clear Creek, Rockcastle County, KY but the courthouse records burned around 1874.

9. Feb. 25, 1833, at age 73, he appeared in the Rockcastle County Court and applied for a pension (Thomas Gadd, S31050, National Archives, Washington, DC). He was awarded a pension on Mar. 4, 1833. He is listed in the book REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS IN KENTUCKY, page 146, "private Maryland militia, May 30, 1833; $20. age 74."

10. He died before 1840 as he is not listed in the 1840 Census of KY as living or a Revolutionary soldier.

Hope this helps. I am looking for information about his great grandfather, also named Thomas Gadd, who immigrated into St. Mary's, MD in 1668, most likely from England or Wales.
