Thomas Atchley was the son of Joshua
Atchley & wife.
He was married to Lydia 'Richards' in
1780. The couple lived in Botetourt County,
Virginia, until 1786 when they moved to
Sevier County, Tennessee.

The couple were the parents of 12 children:
Hannah
Mary
Sarah
Isaac
Benjamin
Joshua
Lydia
Thomas
Jane
Elizabeth
Rhoda
Noah

Thomas enlisted during the Fall of 1775 in
the Colonial Army during the Revolutionary
War in Virginia.

Thomas and Lydia were Baptist by faith and
charter members of the Alder Branch Baptist
Church, Sevierville, Sevier Co., Tennessee.
They raised their family here, and many of
their descendants live there today.

GGGG Grandfather, I have joined the
DAR with you as my Patriot. I'm honored
and so proud to be your GGGG Granddaughter.

May God Bless You Always.

The Stephen Holston Chapter, SAR,
celebrated the life and service of
Private Thomas Atchley. They invited
any of his descendants to attend and
many did. The celebration was held Oct.
2, 2012 at 11:00 am. It took place at
the Alder Branch Baptist Church Cemetery.
The service was beautiful and very touching
to all who was there. The pictures taking
of the ceremony is very nice and colorful.
The SAR Chapter placed a "Patriot Marker" on
Thomas' grave site.
