I am sorry that I do not have any information on Tempy Adams who married a Carter. I also do not have the children of Daniel Adams in my database, so it is possible that you are correct.Do you know who Daniel's parents were?(I may have that information somewhere in hard copy from years ago.) It is not likely that her parents survived past the burning of the Rockcastle County Courthouse, so probate records there would not be helpful.
Dr. Absalom Adams had, according to early census records, two daugters and two sons.The boys were James Campbell Adams who died shortly after marrying in Illinois. His father wrote a personal letter to Alexander Campbell who had baptized James and it was published in Campbell's publication.The other was William Martin Adams who lived here in Madison County and had several children of his own.I have not learned the names of the Absalom's daughters.It is possible that one of them died early.Absalom's obituary says he died at the home of his daughter, but no daughter is mentioned in his will - I suppose he had given her something in advance to care for him in his final days.I have not been able to find a marriage for a likely candidate in Bourbon County or in Garrard County, so I will need further information to identify her.
I would be interested in knowing more about William Benjamine Anderson Carter - where he preached, etc.I am currently indexing the biography of John T. Johnson by Rogers, and I am very interested in the history of the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ. Did he attend Transylvania Medical School?I have recently learned that Absalom attended in the early 1830's, when he was past thirty years old.My husband and I are both graduates of Transylvania
