      Thomas served in the Revolutionary War: "Thomas Smith [enlisted Oct. 24, 1776]; Expiration former enlistment: 24 Oct., '79 - $100 bounty paid"

      From December 1775 to May 1777, the North Carolina Regiments remained in the South. The 2nd Regt. served in Virginia at the Siege of Norfolk and also had detachments in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. They were assigned to guard the coast from British invasion and help round up the local Tories. Detachments of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th NC Regiments were at the defense of Charleston, SC in June 1776.

      In May 1777, the 2nd NC Regt. as part of the NC Brigade (which now consisted of nine regiments), was ordered north to join the troops under General Washington. The NC Brigade marched through Williamsburg and Richmond Virginia and paused at Alexandria to undergo inoculations for smallpox. In July the troops were marched northward toward New Jersey and were in New Jersey when they turned south again to Wilmington, Delaware to help counter a British thrust toward Philadelphia from the south.

      The NC Brigade was at the Battle of Brandywine, Pennsylvania on September 11, 1777, but saw little action as it had been assigned to the reserves under General Greene. However, men from the NC Brigade serving in the recently organized Corps of Light Infantry did see heavy action during the battle as they defended Chad's Ford.

      On October 3, 1777 the NC Brigade was in the Battle of Germantown, Pennsylvania, where it again formed the reserve along with the Corps of Light Infantry. When called up, the Brigade saw intense fighting in which its commander, General Francis Nash, had his leg nearly shot off by a British cannon ball. Nash died on October 9th and was buried with full military honors along with several other NC officers killed in the battle.

      The 2nd North Carolina Regiment of the Continental Line was officially disbanded on November 15, 1783.

      And, Thomas returned safely to Mollie.
      Perhaps it was the land bounty offered to War veterans that led their family and grown sons removing Northward circa 1800 to the new state of Kentucky, the war veterans bounty-land resource.
