Thomas Archbold was born in 1755 in Chester, Delaware Co., Pennsylvania. He was one of four children born to Patrick Archbold. Thomas was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. He first enlisted in July 1777 and served five months in Samuel Shannon's regiment. Thomas was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine, outside Philadelphia, in September 1777. His father came to the Army encampment and carried him home by horse so that he might recuperate from his wounds. In 1778, he reenlisted in the same regiment and served eight months. He then served in Bell's Company of Pennsylvania. At the end of his tour of duty, he did guard duty at Hannastown, Pennsylvania.
In 1780, he married Mary Kent in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Mary was born in 1760. Later they moved to Tuscarawas County, Ohio. He was the first voter in the first election that established Dohrman Township in Tuscarawas County. Shortly after Mary's death in 1826, he married Mary Ligett. Thomas later moved to Root Township, Adams County, Indiana where he was one of the early settlers. He died there in 1837. He is one of only three Revolutionary War soldiers known to be buried in Adams County.
