    • Notes for Thomas Smithers Hill:

      When the Revolutionary War began in 1776, Thomas was 16 years old. He entered military service as a private in June 1776. In his first 3 month tour he was sent to quell trouble with Indians on the Tennessee River. Five years later, in 1781, he served another 3 month tour on an assignment to prevent the British from crossing the Dan River. At about this time, one of the last major battles of the Revolution was unfolding nearby at Guilford Court House, but apparently Thomas did not participate directly in this battle. Finally, he was sent once again to East Tennessee to serve his final tour to protect an area in Hawkins County from Indians.
