Smith Co TN records:1816 Henry Turney sold 84 acres of land to Jacob Adams, witt: by Abraham Adams
Henry Turney's land was on Clear Forks - later it would fall right on the Dekalb/Cannon co Tn line.....
As I put it together, this Jacob Adams in 1816 was the father of Abraham and they might have been part of a group 1809 out of Patrick Co VA/Surry Co NC area who came up the Nickajack trail to near Liberty, TN....including Adams, Adamson, Fuston, Keaton, Overall, Hancock.
It seems there were about 3 different groups of Adams in Smith Co TN....1810 map shows Smith Co had part of what became Dekalb, just a tiny bit which became Cannon (right where the Turney, Adams lived), about 2/3 of present Macon.In 1800 part of this area including land the Turneys got around 1804 was in Wilson Co TN.
What I wonder is.....do you have a Hannah in the Adams family who would have been born around 1790, married about 1812 in Smith Co TN?
