It is said that he was captured at the battle of Yorktown and imprisioned at Fredericksburg, Vriginia. Arthur and his family were living in Fauquier County when the 1810 Federal Census was taken. One author says that the descendants of Arthur Gladstone changed their name to Gladson. The name Gladson will be used only where it is specifically used by a descendant.
