While looking thru' the 1820 Franklin Co IL census I found, 37 Kinchen ADAMS 1820 10001001000 I was surprised, possibly this will help a Kinchen ADAMS researcher. Still looking for John ADAMS 1802 VA, wife Ailsey 1813 GA,they were in Tn 1830s, KY 1840s, and IL 1850 and 1860 Saline & White Cos IL, John died ca 1857. Its very possible he is from the Dickson Co TN Nelson Adams bunch...possibly an unknown brother? Family lore puts them in SC, NC, VA, in what order, I do not know. He left home when young to trade with the Indians, and when he returned they were gone...pictures I have look very MUCH like Nelson and Stephen T..there is a definate resemblance here! Stephen T and my dad could be one in the same people!My dad said there were kin in TN & KY.
