Hello Robert King, thank you for answering my query.I have talked with you before. I will tell you what I know, and a lot came from other people, so don't take it as absolute, some I have found on my own.
Susannah Sookey/Suckey Adams d/o Robert and Mourning Pigg Adams md Joseph "Jose" Rowden 6-9 of Jan 1790 Pittsylvania Co.,Va, they migrated to Georgia first via So Carolina, and are on the 1793-1794 taxes for Wilkes Co.,Ga, along with Laban Rowden who md Milley Adams d/o above Robert and Mourning on 27 Dec 1785 Pittsylvania Co.,Va.
According to Hazel, Maverick42@bellsouth.net both Rowden men were sons of, John Rowden II b ca 1735 Stapleford, Wiltshire, England, and Sarah "Sally" Hubbard Echols b ca 1734, Halifax Co.,Va.
I know that Jose and Susannah Rowden were in Roane & McMinn Co.,Tn, plus there were other Adams families there on the 1820 & 1830 Fed Cen. Two of the Adams men, William and Giles Adams of McMinn Co Tn were later in Montgomery and Madison Cos IL, They were originally from the Henry Co Va area.(there were other Adamses there too) This is the Adams bunch that I am trying to separate, I believe my John Adams b ca 1802 Va just may have been the John Adams that was on the 1830 McMinn Co Tn cen. There was also a Claibourne Pigg that was there in the 1820s.(court recs) (The McMinn Co Tn genealogical site has a lot of records online, info on Giles Adams (in IL too) came from there as well as info on Williams Adams re: IL)
This is the children of Joseph & Susannah Adams Rowden as I have them, Elijah A. 26 Dec 1791 Va Abednigo (triplet) 23 Mar 1792 SC Mesheck"Ditto Shadrack"Ditto Sarah T.abt. 1796GA or TN William A."1797""" Absolom"1798""" Elkanah"1802Roane Co.,TN Obediance L."1804Tn probably Roane Co John14 July 1805Tn " Samuel Echols1806Tn " Hammadatha D.1807Tn " Laban B.19 Sept 1808 Roane Co.,Tn Joseph K.1812 Roane Co.,Tn (McMinn & Roane Cos Tn are right next to each other) I have it that Joseph Jose Rowden died abt 1812, that needs work. KG There are two stories on Susannah Adams Rowden's death one is that she died after 1830 McMinn Co Tn, the other is that she went to Cedar Co Mo with members of the family, and died in Missouri. Another part that needs work.
This is what I have on the children of Laban and Milley Adams Rowden of Gwinnet Co., GA, Leah b ca 1787 VA Hubbard Allen13 Sept 1790 GA Tabitha b ca 1794 GA Deliab ca 1796 Oglethorpe Co GA Lottb ca 1800 Gwinnet Co GA Mourning b ca 1801 Georgia (female) Milleyb ca 1803 Georgia Milley Adams Rowden b ca 1765 Pittsylvania Co.,Va d after 1860 Gwinnet Co.,GA Laban Rowden d after 1850 Gwinnet Co.,GA
