Here is part of what I posted on Jan. 10, 2010, as message #23374.Does this help you?You may want to see my earlier post if you haven't done so already.
Pittsylvania County, Va. Deed Book 35, p. 167: Deed recorded 19 Aug 1833: Allison Adams and wife Phoebe, and Creed Adams and wife Polly, and Thomas Williams and wife Harriet together for $65 sold to William Davis their rights in the dower of Elizabeth Adams. (Thus, Allison Adams and Creed T. Adams were sons of Elijah Adams.) [Note: Thomas Williams and wife Harriet were not heirs/descendants of Elijah Adams. They had an interest in the dower lands of Elizabeth Adams only because of the mortgage given to Thomas Williams by Edmund Adams on 13 May 1820 in Pittsylvania County, Va. Deed Book 23, p. 223 -- a record summarized earlier.]
Pittsylvania County, Va. Deed Book 39, p. 289: Deed recorded 16 Jan 1837: Allison Adams and wife Phoebe for $404 sold to Daniel Bradley 58 acres, being land assigned to Allison in the division of the land of his father, Elijah Adams. (Again, Allison Adams was shown as a son of Elijah Adams.)
