1809 a group out of Patrick Co Virginia (Surry Co NC)....included Adams, Fuston, Keaton, Overall, Adamson, and I have found Hancock migrated at same time.....to Smith County Tennessee......
Now you say Jacob Jr. was Abraham's father - boy I had figured they were probably related.....
Okay, I have a female Adams born ca 1796, who married 1812 in Smith Co TN, trying to figure out who her father was.There were about 3 groups of Adams in Smith Co TN by 1820....Smith was a large co and Macon, Dekalb, Cannon, etc. would come out of there.
My Turneys were on Clear Forks in Smith Co - later their land fell in both Dekalb and Cannon....this near Liberty Tn.
Henry Turney sold to Jacob Adams 84 acres proven by oaths of Abraham Adams and Solemn Leek...registered 12 Feb 1816.As I said, Henry Turneys land was in Dekalb part of Smith, but take a step and you would be in Cannon where his son Isaac had adjoining land to Henry.In the 1830 census Jacob Adams is living about 2 houses from Lemuel Turney - a grandson of Henry.The line of Isaac Turney (1777-1829) two of his children married Adams and they all moved to Searcy Co Arkansas....so should I assume this Jacob Adams was that line?And Abraham was his son?
What I really want to know is - who was the father of Hannah Adams born ca 1796, who married in 1812 in Smith Co TN....?????
1820 census of Smith Co has these Adams: Henry, Jesse, Aaron, John, Solomon, Allen, Daniel, Elijah, Abraham and Jacob
1830 census of Smith Co TN has: Solomon, John, John, Francis, Elijah, Aaron, Daniel, Daniel, Matthew, Henry, Aaron L., and Jacob Adams living next door to Bird Spurlock and two houses from Lemuel Turney.
Can you help me sort these Adams out?As I said, I have been told there are 3 groups of Adams....on being in Macon County area.I know about the group you talked about coming 1809 out of Patrick Co VA on the Nickajack trail, but there was a Jacob Adams in 1806 in Hawkins Co TN where Henry Turney had lived before the move to Smith Co....and Adams was also a name I have found in early eastern TN, Cumberland group, and in VA.
