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 Veteran, 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.

Findagrave member Gabrielle Hadyka (#47698653) adds:

The PA Department of Military Affairs Record of Burial place of Veteran does state this Thomas Adams born 1735 died 1776 served with Capt. Samuel McClanes Co as a LT however when you check this information with the PA Archives The Lt. Thomas Adams with Capt Samuel McLane was commissioned July 2, 1781 and that is after the date of death for the Thomas Adams per the headstone. This service can not be correct
