I am searching for the parents of Joel Thomas. Joel was born in Virginia around 1768 and died in Putnam County, Indiana in 1850. According to a family reunion article in a newspaper, his father was an officer in the American Revolution. I would like to know his name so that I can confirm his action in the war. Only other information I have on Joel is his wife was Margaret Kennedy (1771-1851), and his son was William Thomas (b. 1797 KY, d. 1839 IN).
