Oxenbridge Thacher
Revolutionary

I still don't know to a certainty which Oxenbridge is the Oxenbridge Thacher who was supposed to have had an influence in the Revolution. I have identified two. One is Thomas > Peter > Peter > Oxenbridge, born 1725 and one is Thomas > Peter > Oxenbridge > Oxenbridge born 1720. Both born within five years of each other and died within ten years of each other.

I am leaning towards Thomas > Oxenbridge, Sr > Oxenbridge, Jr as the notable Revolutionary figure, as most of the biographies give his birth and death date. This, in spite of the Powers-Banks genealogy which stated the other Oxenbridge was the notable Revolutionary War era lawyer.
