About 1745 the family moved from Maryland to North Carolina [see deed from George Cole to John Miles Youngblood, 1745]. Thomas ( who also appears in records as Thomas Y'blood or Wyblood and 'Young' Youngblood), Jacob, Edith, and Ichabod. Thomas Sr. owned land near what is now Raleigh, N.C. and can be found in the 1790, and 1800 U.S. Censuses. His brother, Henry Miles Youngblood, named him as executor of his will in 1773. [1]

According to his records with the Daughters of the American Revolution, Thomas married Amy Hopkins and made his home in the ninety-six district in the state of South Carolina. He was a cattle drover, a person who moves animals over long distances. Although he did not serve as a soldier during the American Revolutionary War, he is listed for his Patriotic Service, in that he drove cattle to General Greene's Army. [2]

Thomas' Will was written on March 28, 1816, and recorded in the South Carolina Wills Book C, page 86. From this, we know that his date of death is after that date. His Will was not proved until February 22, 1822, in Edgefield, South Carolina [3]

Youngblood-548 and Youngblood-291 do not represent the same person because: The Thomas of Edgefield c1745 is my branch and I match YDNA 34-37 of 37 YDNA markers to descendants of four of his sons... Thomas YB 1736 of MD and Johnston Co, NC is a totally separate line and branch... I match less than 20 of 37 markers... I have spent the last 6 years trying to CORRECT this bad information all over the internet...Ancestry and person trees... and was hoping it would not resurface on WIKI TRee

IMPORTANT NOTE: this Thomas is often confused or commingled with the Thomas Youngblood who lived at the same time in South Carolina. DNA testing of proven descendants of John Miles Youngblood proves that these are two totally different families.
