Yes, George, there does seem to be evidence for a son Thomas. The Crow and squirrel heads records has his name in 1642, perhaps for the first time because of having become of age at 21, making him born about 1621. In the 1752 record the David would have been his elder brother, not his father, and Thomas would have been 31, so probably married and wanting his own plantation/farm. The 1777 Militia records could have been him at about 56 or could have been a son named after him. The others were of that next generation. As you mentioned Charles' son Thomas went to Virginia and he was in Rev war records there. In Joan Farley's posting #1428 she mentions details of that Thomas.
