I know that DAR accepted Thomas m. to Elizabeth Sparkman, but it doesn't look right to me. I'm looking at the will of Thomas dec 1749 m. Eleanor where it reads that ....should son Thomas die in minority.. Eleanor is the exor. and the wit: Edward Rice and Thomas Mewboorn. How would you identify the 2 Thomases? Will of Thomas dec 1782 m. Grace. Looks like he should be the soldier. My source reads that Thomas who married Sparkman was son of Thomas soldier. The Greene, Lenoir, Johnston, Dobbs land records are on the internet.
