Thomas Bouldin Jr. served from Virginia. Further information can be obtained from a DAR members application.

In 1778 he was granted a license to operate an "Ordinary" or roadhouse where travelers could obtain food, drink and lodging.

In 1789, he sold this business to his brother-in-law, Edward Moseley, Jr. He and his family then moved to Henry County, Virginia, where he began a partnership with Peter Perkins operating "Bouldin and Perkins Iron Works". In 1804 he purchased the interest of Peter Perkins and renamed it "Thomas Bouldin and Sons Iron Works."

Thomas had acquired approximately 1500 acres of land between Smith River and Horsepasture, along Grassy Creek, and operated tobacco farms. His wife Martha was the oldest daughter of Captain Edward Moseley and his wife Amey Green. Her mother, Amey Green, was the daughter of William Green and Amey Clay, the great-aunt of Henry Clay, the noted American statesman from Ashland Kentucky, who served as Secretary of State under President John Quincy Adams (1825-1829).

Thomas is buried near Grassy Creek in the Bouldin Family Cemetery. Regretfully, all that remains there is his marker and that of his son.
