Chilton, Thomas

Chilton, Thomas a Baptist minister, was born in Virginia, probably about 1769, and went with his parents when a child to Kentucky. In 1789 he united with a "Separate" Baptist Church, and not long after began to preach. In order to bring the different schools of Baptists in Kentucky into harmony, he published, in 1801, his Terms of General Union. The desired end was accomplished, but the union lasted only a short time. A portion drew off in 1803, under the leadership of John Bailey (q.v.), to which Mr. Chilton adhered. He published a small volume in 1835, in vindication of the position which he and his associates had taken. His death took place in 1840. See Cathcart, Baptist Encyclop. page 216. (J.C.S.)
