He was a Surgeons Mate of the US during the Revolution and was attached to Major I.W. Bell's Squadron of US Dragoons. He was honorably discharged due to his wound that had incapacitated him from further active duty and was placed on the pension rolls in 1813. The information on Thomas was obtained from the Henry Co. Public Library. Thomas was buried on his family farm, which is now part of the Foree Homestead Farms across from the Henry County Country Club. The cemetery is noted in Mr. Meeks Cemetery Book as #141 Robertson Cemetery. It should be noted that this cemetery is not fenced and cattle have access to it and is slowly destroying this cemetery which should be preserve. There are many surviving relatives of Thomas living in Henry Co. today including myself, he is my 4th greatgrandfather. Also Thomas had two Sons who served in the Civil War, they are Thomas W. Robertson who was a !st Lieut. in Company "K" of the 6th Kentucky Infantry, this information is on page 336 Union Regiments of Kentucky. And Elijah D. Robertson a Private in Company "A" of the 54th Mounted Infantry. This information is in the same book page 664. After Thomas W. Robertson was discharged, he left Henry Co. and I have not researched enough to determine where he went, but I think he moved to Louisville, will research him more in the future. Elijah stayed on the family farm until his death and in buried in the New Castle Cemetery, with a Military Stone marking his grave. Information was provided by Ray G. Raisor.
