Susan,Robert Gibson and Kelle Susan, in your post dated 1 Nov, 2003 you mentioned a granddaughter of John ADAMS, who was a dau of son John. I have been trying to find the biological mother of James N. and John M. UNDERWOOD, sons of John UNDERWOOD, b. abt 1805, in KY.John, Sr. is listed as being from Harrison Co KY when he purchased land in Buck Crk Twp, Hancock Co, IN, 20 Mar. 1837. John and Mary *Ann* UNDERWOOD sold land to Adam POCK of Harrison Co KY 6 Nov. 1837. John and Mary *Jane* UNDERWOOD donated one acre of land for construction of the United Brethren in Christ Church 7 Jan. 1858.Mary *Jane* is the 2nd wife of John.She was the dau. of my gg-grandfather, Thomas KENNEDY, and was b. Mar. 1826, in OH.After the death of John UNDERWOOD, in Dec. 1858, Mary Jane mar. Frederick HENDRIX, in 1859, in Hancock Co, IN after the death of his spouse Aphra OWINGS who was b. abt 1812 in Rowan Co NC. Mary Jane and Frederick HENDRIX are my g-grandparents.
I have a marriage bond from Harrison Co KY which states that John UNDERWOOD mar. Mary Ann ADAMS.The bond was dated 5 Feb. 1835. and signed by John UNDERWOOD and Joel FIELDS.It was solemnized by Whitefield COLLINS, V.D.H.
The 1820 census of Harrison Co KY shows Francis UNDERWOOD, FIELDS, ADAMS and POCK all living in close proximity to each other.My interest is also in the father of John UNDERWOOD and I am wondering whether Francis may be hisfather or related some way.
So what I need answers for are: John UNDERWOOD'S ancestry, as well as Mary Ann ADAMS.I am hoping they may lead me to the ancestry of gg-grandfather, Thomas KENNEDY, b. 10 Aug. 1793, in VA. He was living in Huntington Twp, Brown Co OH, in 1830 when he purchased his land abt 1835 in Buck Crk Twp, Hancock Co IN. Virgene in northwest Indiana
