NOTE::
Some years back, someone unknown to me added the name "Richard" to my GGG grandfather Thomas Waldron's name on lineage info. Thomas Waldron, b 1782, son of Benjamin Waldron of Halifax County VA married Salley Tate. Thomas Waldron is found on the 1820 Tazewell County VA census living on the 104 acres he got as payment for his War of 1812 service. He is living in that area until 1864 at his death. I have MANY documents to back up he is NOT Richard.

In every leagl document and on every census he is called Thomas. In William Waldron's will he is called Thomas. There is no historical evidence that his name is Richard.
IF someone somewhere found evidence showing he does have the name Richard, what is it? please share it... and if there is no evidence as I have found there is not, I request that you please correct his identity so others will have accurate info when they copy info from Ancestry.

I deeply hope I have finally explained the problem of mislabeling Thomas Waldron and I ask all researchers who have him in their lineage to please make the name correction.

Thank you.

I dont know who uploaded all this info. OUR Thomas b 1782 is not the Thomas who is buried here at Akers. I sent a friend to read the head stones, and its actually his grandson Thomas. Sadly an error has been made as our ancestor Thomas' b 1782 grave site...(Read more)
