Bio at the Historical Society:
10th THOMAS BROCKMAN. Entered the service early in 1776, under Capt. John Marks, of Col. Charles Lewis' regiment in General Greene's Division of the United States Army. He served in this particular company under Capt. Marks for three years, and during the remainder of the Revolutionary War under Capt. Archibald Moon. He was in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Stoney Point, and many other minor engagements. He was born in Albermarle County, Virginia, date uncertain, and died in Montgomery County about 1838. He recites in his application for a pension that he resides on the East Fork of Shoal Creek. His remains lie buried in a little graveyard, at the side of the road, at the present in a pasture lot belonging to Joseph Spinner. His grave is unmarked, but the late John Brockman wrote me only a few weeks before his death that he could possibly give the exact location of the grave. Now, that he is gone, it is doubtful if any one living can point out the exact spot where he lies.
