Here's a small follow on to this discussion about Bartholomew:
Some years ago I obtained photocopies from the Kentucky Historical Society librarary in Frankfort, KY from the following book:
The Pavey Family of Ohio [2 typewritten volumes], by Charles Calloway Pavey [1857-1925] (New York, 1940)
[p. 13]During the Revolutionary War there lived near or in Bridgeville, Delaware, a Bartholomew Adams.He was a local Methodist preacher and Revolutionary soldier, a private in the Delaware Regiment of Foot, commanded by Col. David Hall, Company 4, Peter Jacquette, Captain.Who his father and mother were, we do not know, nor do we know when or where he was born, nor do we know when he died, but he and his wife lie buried in a field near Bridgeville, Delaware, in an unenclosed grave yard, with no stone to mark their resting place.The spot was pointed out to the author on the 23rd day of May, 1912, by Bartholomew M. Adams, a great grandson, who resides near Bridgeville, Delaware."
[Richard Cochran Note 1 -- Bartholomew Adams, Rev. War pension file; deposition dated 17 Aug 1818, Bartholomew Adams declared he was 64 years of age [b. ca. 1754]
[Richard Cochran Note 2 -- Bartholomew M. Adams, 1910 census, Bridgeville, Sussex Co., Delaware, aged 48 years old; tracking back through earlier censuses, he is shown to be the son of Bartholomew M. Adams, Sr., b. ca. 1822 -- married Sarah E. Tully on 13 Mar 1847 in Sussex Co., Del.]
[p. 21]"For a first wife, on April 20, 1786, possibly at or near Bridgeville, Delaware, on the anniversary of his eighteenth birthday, Isaac [Pavey] married Frances Adams; who was at the time of her marriage not above 17 years of age, for she died January 8, 1796, in her twenty-seventh year.She was a sister of Bartholomew Adams, of Bridgeville, Delaware.
[Richard Cochran Note 3 -- 1880 History of Clinton Co., Ohio, p. 816:Thomas N. Adams was an early settler of the Gallatin survey, made for Edward Douse, No. 811.He was a squatter there.Mr. Adams was married twice.By the first marriage, he had three children -- Absalom, Henry and Mrs. Isaac Pavey [Frances]; by the second, Thomas N., John, Charles, William, Henry Long and others."]
Exactly how Bartholomew M. Adams, Jr. descends from the Rev. War Bartholomew Adams is not known.
