Thomas Adams, a son of Robert Adams (d. 1783) and his wife Mourning of Pittsylvania County, VA, appears to have left Pittsylvania County at an early date, but where he went is unclear.As far as I know, no one has been able to identify his family (assuming he had a family).To follow are references that may or may not be for this Thomas Adams.
Thomas Adams was bonded for marriage on 11 Nov 1782 in Halifax County, VA to Rachel Nobler.
Thomas Adams was listed in the 1782 and 1785 substitute census records for Pittsylvania County, VA with 5 whites in his household.
Thomas Adams was qualified as a constable in Pittsylvania County, VA on 21 Feb 1786 (Court Order Book 5, p. 297).After that, I have no later records for any Thomas Adamses in Pittsylvania County, VA.
I descend from Elijah Adams (1764-1814) another son of Robert Adams (d. 1783) of Pittsylvania County, VA.Elijah didn't have a son named Thomas.
I would be very grateful if you would share further information on the two daughters of Robert Adams (d. 1783) who married Rowdens: namely "Suckey" Adams who was bonded for marriage 9 Jan 1790 in Pittsylvania Co., VA to Joseph Rowden; and Milley Adams who was bonded for marriage on 27 Dec 1785 in Pittsylvania County, VA to Laban Rowden.You mentioned that they were in Tennessee and Georgia.Where?Who were their children?Are they named in wills, probate records, or deeds?I'd really appreciate any information and references you could provide.
