    3. Thomas2 Lantor, baptized 5 November 1704 in Christ Church Parish, was paid 30 pounds of tobacco in King George County, Virginia, on 8 December 1722 for helping to guard a prisoner in the county jail. He was involved in several minor suits in King George County between 2 February 1722/3 and 6 March 1724/5 [Orders 1721-3, 74, 101; 1723-5, 166, 186, 208, 220, 236]. And he was involved in a number of lawsuits, mostly for debt, in Caroline County court as plaintiff and defendant between 11 May 1732 and 13 June 1746 [Orders 1732-40, 9, 11, 62, 63, 83, 91, 125, 129, 137, 149, 165, 166, 384; 1740-6, 139, 464, 561, 590]. He was the father of Elizabeth Saunders's "mulatto" child born before 12 September 1735 when Elizabeth identified him as the father in Caroline County court. The court ordered Elizabeth to serve her master Samuel Coleman additional time and ordered the child bound to Coleman. On 12 May 1738 Thomas sued Richard Buckner, Gentleman, for work he had done building two sheds adjoining John Buckner's house. The court ordered Buckner to pay him 40 shillings [Orders 1732-40, 307, 378, 481, 491, 503, 520]. On 10 February 1745/6 he produced a certificate in court for taking up two white servants belonging to John Glanton of Caroline County. That same day he was ordered to be placed in the stocks for half an hour, no explanation being given for the punishment [Orders 1740-6, 563, 565]. He was apparently identical to "yr Brother Tom" who William Talliaferro listed in his account of transactions with Peter Lanter in 1752. Taliaferro paid Peter and Tom's levies in 1754 [Judgments, May-August 1764, Court Papers, May 1764]. The Orange County court dismissed Joseph Brown's suit against him on 25 November 1752 and Joseph Williams's suit against him on 26 April 1753 [Orders 1747-54, 405, 415].
    He may have been the father of

    4 i. Elizabeth, born say 1730.

    ii. Thomas2, born about 1757, married to Mary Walker on 28 August 1783 by Rev. Aaron Bledsoe in Orange County [Ministers' Returns, 13]. He was taxable in Orange County, Virginia, on 1 tithe, 4 horses and 5 cattle in 1782 [Little, Orange County Tithables, 144] and taxable on 2 tithes, 4 horses, and 6 cattle in 1787 [Schreiner-Yantis, 1787 Census, 735]. He was head of an Orange County household of 5 whites in 1782 [VA:39], 7 in 1785 [VA:97] and a Montgomery County, Kentucky household of 10 whites in 1810. He was 75 years old on 7 January 1833 when he applied for a pension in Madison County, Kentucky, for his service in the Revolution. He stated that he was born, raised and resided about twelve miles from the courthouse in Orange County, Virginia, until 1805. He had a sister named Milly Webb [NARA, W.9114, M804, roll 1524, frame 468 of 1027].
