Birth: Jul. 5, 1735
Death: Dec. 5, 1776
Pennsylvania, USA

One of the original settlers in what became Adams County, Pennsylvania. His wife Magdalene lived an additional fifty years and is buried in St. Joseph's Churchyard, Taneytown, Maryland.
Findagrave member Carolyn Beebe (#48968505) adds:

According to the DAR, Thomas I. Adams (1735-1776) did not serve as Captain in the Revolution with Col Smallwood; Sept Oct 1776; MD Regulars (DAR Ancestory No. A202676) and they are no longer accepting applications with that designation. All new applicants will have to submit correct service information.

My research indicates that the PA Veterans Burial Cards, 1777-2012, Adams County Deceased Veterans, Jan 23, 1989, Thomas Adams (1735-1776) of Adams Co., buried at Conewago Chapel, served under Lt. Capt. Samuel McLane's Co.

Furthermore, a PA Veterans Burial Cards, 1777-2012, Record of Burial Place of Vetern, indicates that Thomas Adams (1735-1776) served as a Lieutenant in the Army during the Revolutionary War under Capt. Samuel McClanes Co. Phila. Co. Mil. 1st Reg. of Foot.
