Information on Thomas Price

Moved to Augusta County, from Culpeper County, sometime after his father's death, and most likely before the birth of any of his children. Returned to Culpeper once, in 1775, to deed the land he inherited from his father to his step-father Alexander Burk. In 1774, Thomas enlisted in Captain John Lewis' company of the Augusta County regiment, fought in Dunmore's War, and was wounded in the left arm in the Battle of Point Pleasant. In 1780, during the Revolutionary War, he was a militiaman in Augusta County militia with Captain John Givens' Company. This company helped run Tarlton's British soldiers out of Charlottsville and then joined Gen. Lafayette's army. Thomas moved to Randolph County by 1790 (Randolph was formed in 1786), then Floyd County, Kentucky, by 1793, and finally to Posey County, Indiana, by the time it was formed in 1814. (Source: Rev. John E. Cox in his 1926 Thomas Price (A Pioneer in Posey County, Indiana) and His Descendants)
