(original is in the LIB OF CONGRESS): "Departed this life, at his
residence in anson Co on the 11 January 1854, Robert Huntly, senr. in the
93rd year of his age. Brother Huntly was a soldier in the great struggle
of his country for liberty--was placed as guard in the battle at Camden
when Gates was defeated--afterwards aided as one of a scouting party to
subdue the tories. Such was his regard for this fellow-men, we have heard
him say he never wished to shed innocent blood. But he had served as a
soldier for about 50 years under the banner of the King of Saints, and no
doubt could say in his death, I have fought, etc. we can say of Brother
Huntly as is often said of those who struggled for liberty. He was a
Baptist, and had been regular as a member 50 years. Thosw eho would mourn
for him, cannot as those who have no hope. He was about four years, an
object of much suffering, having been entirely deprived of natural sight,
but all of his afflictions he bore with Christian fortitude, as if
remembering, that it was to work for him a far more exceeding and eternal
weight of glory."

D.A.R. #261403, Private - American Revolution

The pension papers state that Thomas served in the Revolutionary War as a resident of Lincoln County, North Carolina. Deed Book 12-13-14, p. 363, Rutherford Co., N.C., proves he had land in Rutherford Co., which in 9/13/1800, he at that time a resident of Botetourt Co., Va., deeded to his son, George Welch, of Rutherford Co., N.C. Residence in Botetourt Co., Va., before migrating to White Co., Tennessee, indicates he journeyed through Kentucky to White County possibly by the Wilderness Trail which led through Crab Orachard, Ky., the residence of other Welches who were probably his relatives. Thomas Welch's pension records indicate the family reached White Co., Tennessee, about 1816. Tax lists of White County confirm residence there as early as 1817. Minutes of the White County Court reveal that on July 19, 1819, a Deed of Gift was ordered to be recorded for 20 a. to Thomas Welch and "Marian" from John Welch, George Welch, Mark Whitacre, Isaac Welch, Archibald Welch, James Welch, Marianne Welch, and Margaret Welch. it was proven in open court by Polly Bohannon, "one of the Subscribing witnesses thereto for the purposes and things mentioned". What the "purpose and things" were ramains a mystery, since the deed is missing from the records. We know from other records that the above list of donors does not include all of the children of Thomas.

Thomas Welch, private, received pension in White County, Tennessee for his services in the Revolution. Upon his death, John Barnes, administrator, Jackson County, Tennessee, states in a paper filed separately with the record of the last payment to Thomas Welch, pensioner, that Thomas had lived in Jackson County, two years before his death, and before that in White County about twenty-eight years, and before that in N.C. he left no widow, according to John Barnes, and the surviving childred were John, George, Isaac, Archibald, Ann, Abby Meekle, and Margaret Queen. The 1836 Tax list, 11th District, White County, proves there was both a Thomas Welch, Sr. and a Thomas Welch, Jr.
