Notes
a. Note:   !Will at St. Marys Dtd. 3 Feb 1730 and proven 11 Mar 1733. Thomas was a planter and politician as well as a Colonel in the Militia. He was born into a family of wealth and prominence. Priot to his Marriage in 1707, Thomas was the county surveyor of Prince George County. His wife Susanna, also inherited quite a bit of land from her father and brother. At the age of two, Thomas had already inherited several hundred acres from his great Uncle Major Thomas Truman, Esq. in 1685. Since the Major had no children of his own, he stipulated in his 1685 Calvert Co. will that Thomas Truman Greenfield and his descendants take the name of Truman. In looking at the fourth generation (even the females) one sees it is Truman. Almost no one was given a middle name until Maj. Thomas Truman wrote his will. In fact his third son was named Truman Greenfield. As early as 1714, at age 32, Thomas was known as Capt. Thomas Truman Greenfield. He was later commissioned as a Colonel in the County Militia. He was active in Politics and was a staunch member of the Church of England (Episcopal). He had no love for Roman Catholics which was unusual since his family had been Catholics two generations back. His tombstone at Trent Hall, St. Mary's Co., MD and reads "Here Lyeth the Body of Thomas Truman Greenfield who departed this life the 10th of December 1733 in the 51st year of his age."
