My Three Creeks research focussed on my ancester Jesse Adams who moved from VA to NC around 1750 so I don't have any specific help with your Collin Adams.If Collin was from Southampton Co, VA there is a reasonably good chance there was a common ancester. There were a surprisingly limited number of Adams records in Southampton County and surrounding VA counties prior to 1750.David Adams, whose estate was probated 11/9/1749 and Henry Adams who died 1767/70 seem to be the most solid Adams links for Southampton County. The index shows David's estate as a "will" but none found among court records for that year.Actually it looks more like an administration with his widow as co-administrator of his land, etc. and not identifying heirs.The Three Creeks land along with a Rev. pension record "tied the knot" for connection to the NC Adams migration I was concerned with.There was a gap until 1761 when court records show David left at least three orphaned children:  Reuben placed with Benjamin Adams (I think this Benjamin was David's brother; Reuben was old enough to witness Henry Adams' will in 1767)  Lucy placed with John Ivy  Sarah placed with Samuel Worthington I assumed that these younger children remained with David's widow until her death and that quite likely there were other children who were not underage in 1861.My own ancester -- Jesse Adams Sr as well as Robert Adams (whose Franklin Co, NC records tie him back to the Three Creeks land), John Adams and David Adams "Junior" are solid candidates to have been such older children.Jesse and Robert were the only ones I attempted to track further -- Jesse remained in NC; Robert bounced back and forth. David Adams Sr and Henry Sr were probably sons of Thomas Adams who died 1722 in Prince George County, VA and possibly grandsons of Peter Adams who died 5/3/1687 in Surry Co, VA but no firm proof of those links.Circumstantual evidence plus geographic proximity and a limited number of viable candidates impact upon my conclusions. One very outside chance you may want to check out would be a William A. Adams (born 1755/60 in Southampton Co, s/o John; grandson of Henry) who married a Mary Gooding.I'm assuming though that "your" Mary Adams was a sister or daughter of James Lundy and of course there were a lot of Mary's to pick from.If I assumed correctly, finding a Lundy/Adams marriage during that time period or a property record linking the Lundy and Adams families in some way might be a useful straw to draw out of the haystack.When applicable, orphans records are also a pretty good source for that time and place.The relatively distinctive children names "Collin" and "Darling" might also be helpful in your search as there were tendencies to name kids afterrelatives (might find a surname Collin/Collins or Darling with some connection or some Adams or Lundy with either as a first name).The tendency was to marry someone who lived within five or ten miles of you since horseback courting range was limited.There was also a tendency for siblings leaving the nest or in-laws to migrate together and live in close proximity.You are into a time period when early VAtax records (via Archives in Richmond or on microfilm) might be worth checking.Unfortunately they are arranged alpha rather than by residence but they might help you to zero in on Adams and/or Lundy households in the appropriate area and turn up a clue.Even males of voting or draft age (titheables) who didn't own anything and householders (including widows) owning no more than a horse were subject to taxation.I customarily scan a series of years on microfilm which can show a widow replacing the deceased husband or similar puzzle pieces for fitting together.If you find a Mary Adams where you expect her to be residing, check back a few years for the possible transition.Virginia records of that era can be quite spotty but when you get a hit they can be invaluable.Military pension records of ancestors or siblings (mentioning jurisdictions, names of spouses/children, witnesses & lots of other good stuff) may take some digging in the absence of a precise name for a veteran but can also provide a break-through (as they did for my Adams branch in which three brothers were drafted on the same day).When I use them I try to at least scan every veteran from a state with the surname(s) I'm researching.There is a cd of a book (or your library might have the book) with summaries of all pension applications showing a Virginia connection which is a lot faster than going through the series of microfilmed images page by page.So far I've found the author picked up most of the pertinent information for applicants with Virginia connections.Putting the pieces together is great fun for Sherlock Holmes fans.Good luck.
