This George Adams is probably the one you are looking for.He obtained a land certificate for 400 acres of land on Paint Lick Creek in KY County 9 Feb 1780.The first meeting establishing the county of Madison in KY was held in his home in Milford, 22 Aug 1786.He was Magistrate from 1786 through 1792 and Sheriff of Madison County in 1788.George paid taxes in Madison County 1787-1800, and Garrard County 1799-1807.Part of Madison County became Garrard County in 1797 where his property was located.On 22 Jul 1788 he sold 200 acres of property to James Adams.From 1797 to 1807 he sold properties in Garrard County and disappeared from the tax records after 1807.His whereabouts afterwards is a mystery.The William Adams (b. 1717) mentioned was in nearby Mercer County about the same time.A George Adams, Jr., was on the same tax rolls as George, Sr., 1794-1802 and may have been a son.John Adams (1762-1835 MO) who married Sarah Boyle (1773 VA -1858 MO) is reported to be a son.They had 14 children and were in Christian Co., KY, before 1810 and migrated to Howard Co., MO, in 1816 where they remained.
George is believed to have been in Botetourt Co., VA, where he was on the tithable tax lists 1771-1777.William, Samuel, David, John, and James Adams were also on tax lists during parts of this period.This fact is only circumstantial as no relationship connection has been shown except that Samuel and David were probable sons of George.Our James Adams was in Botetourt County during this period.
The book "Chronicles of the Scotch Irish", Vol. 1, gives a Mar 1765 Augusta County VA court record which states that the mother of George was Agnes Adams in PA and he was b. 25 Dec 1733.Again, there nothing which connects these facts to the same George except for location.
I have seen the scenario of Adams family relationships which was presented, but only as a theory.We need more corroborating records and data.
