Thomas was born in Maryland about 1794, according to the 1850 US Census of Marshall County, Kentucky. He apparently raised his family in Virginia, where his children were born. He moved his family from Virginia to Kentucky shortly after 1830, since his youngest children were born there. He was living in Marshall Co., KY in 1850.
Thomas Nelson passed away about 1863. [citation needed]
