Thomas is listed in the National Archives unit files as being in a hospital in Roxbury, CT, in mid-November 1775, cause: fever. This record indicates his unit was Capt. Thompson’s company, Gen. Wooster’s regiment. A web page on the Revolutionary war indicates that this unit fought in the invasion of Canada, in 1775. This places Thomas in the same campaign as Stephen Phelps.
