 Thomas Robinson Welburn

Thomas R. Welburn, born May 7, 1849, was the second oldest surviving son of at least 5 born to Mary Gray & George Welburn.  He is rumored to have been named for Thomas Robinson, a white Millsboro farmer, to whom his future brother-in-law William Oliver was bound.

On August 18, 1864 at the young age of 15, Thomas enlisted as a Private in the Union Army (Company H, 28th US Colored Infantry).  He was a substitute for Daniel B. Cannon of SE Broad Creek Hundred, who enlisted 18 months earlier (see substitution document below).  His muster card describes him as 5'3" with black complexion, eyes, and hair.  His age is mistakenly recorded as 18.

By the beginning of 1865, Thomas' rank was transitioned to "Musician".  This change is probably due to the revelation of his true age.  Most of the Civil War fifers, drummers, and buglers were young boys.  Acording to the oral tradition passed down through his descendants, Thomas was a bugler.

Thomas returned home to his parents after his discharge in November 1865.  The 1870 Census lists his occupation as "mariner".  He eventually relocated to Chester County, PA.  He married Lucy Townsend, daughter of Rose Hall and James Townsend, on March 30, 1871 in Camden, NJ.  Nine children were born.  Six survived to adulthood.

Thomas, who died in 1924, and Lucy, who died in 1942, are buried in Ricks Memorial Cemetery in Devon, PA.
