NEWBOLD in Worcester County late 1700s

I am researching my NEWBOLD roots in Sussex County Delaware and Worcester County Maryland in the 18th Century. One of my "disconnects" is the appearance of a Thomas NEWBOLD in the record in Worcester and Somerset County Maryland in the 1790s. I cannot solve who this individual is connected to.

There is a Thomas NEWBOLD mentioned in the Worcester County Maryland Land Records for 1789 - 1791. The mention was not as a grantor or grantee, but as a witness to a land action. A Thomas NEWBOLD is recorded getting married to a Polly Taylor in 1798 in Worcester County. A Thomas NEWBOLD appears on the 1798 Tax List for Somerset County, and on the 1800 Census for Somerset County. The only NEWBOLD I am aware of that lived in Worcestor or Somerset County after about 1770 is Smart NEWBOLD, a son of Thomas NEWBOLD Jr., son of the original Thomas NEWBOLD, both of Somerset County Maryland. Smart NEWBOLD died between April 1785 [date of his Will] and Feb 1786, when an estate inventory is filed by "Esther NEWBOLD", presumably his wife. A guess would be that this Thomas NEWBOLD in the 1790s is a son of Smart NEWBOLD, who named his son after his father and grandfather. But I do not have a copy of the Will to see if Thomas is mentioned.

Would greatly appreciate any information regarding NEWBOLD surname in Worcester County in the late 18th Century, or early 19th Century.

Thank You!
