Look on Cannon Co TN Genweb page - HISTORY OF WOODBURY AND CANNON COUNTY, TENNESSEEby Sterling Spurlock Brown Published by Doak Publishing Company of Manchester, Tennessee in 1936
in part it says.... "The Adams as near as I know and understand from what I have been told, arrived here October 1809.H.A. Overall is my author.I have heard he and my parents talked many times.They all came from Patrick County, Virginia in July 1809.Jacob Adams Sr., Mr. Abe Overall, Wells Adamson, Zachariah Keaton, Sam Fuson, and Isaac Turney, and possible others, formed a company of home seekers and turned their faces west...."
The arrived in what was then Smith Co TN, later Cannon Co TN.
I am searching for info on the Isaac Turney with no luck so thought I would try to trace some of the other families mentioned.
So do you know if it is correct that Jacob Adams SR and probably other Adams moved from Patrick County, Virginia (very near Surry Co NC) to Smith/Cannon Co Tennessee in 1809?
