My Great-Great Grandfather, Nelson Adams was born in 1813 in Hamilton County, Tennessee. He father was Asa Adams(born 1777 in North Carolina), but I do not have any information before Asa. Since Nelson was the first son of Asa, it is possible that he was named after his Grandfather. Does the Nelson you have a son name Asa or Ashal, who married a Pherity Barfoot? Thanks for your help, Tommy.
