Thomas' brother William Copeland Dugger applied for a Pension on behalf of himself and his siblings, as heirs of Revolutionary War soldier William Dugger, their father. Filed 9 Jun 1853 (# R 3109), he named the surviving heirs of William, and included Thomas as "Thomas, age 55," and listed him as a son of William by his "first" wife Nancy Millard (who was actually his second wife).
