I am searching for any information of the parents of John E. Adcock.I have heard his father or grandfather was a Missionary in Portugal.While there he married a Woman from there.Came to New York and must have came to South Carolina as William Adcock b. 1823 and John E. Adcock b. 1824 was born there.These two sons came to Ms. In the 1850 census of Harrison Co. Ms. I found John E. there married to Lucy Ann with a son named John Wesley. Then later I find them in the Smith Co. Ms. census along with John E.'s brother William.
William's and his wife,Jesusha N. had the following children. Mary E. b.1846--John b.1848--Sarah A. b. 1850--Martha A. b.1853--Archibald b. 1855--Eliza B. b. 1858
John E. and his wife, Lucy Ann had the following children. John Wesley Adcock b. Oct. 15,1848-- My grandfather--Jefferson D."Dock" b. Dec. 11, 1851--Franklin Giles b. April 1, 1857--Sarah E. b 1860 the 1870 census had her at this time 10yrs. old. If any one has any information on this family please let me know. I think the other brother might have went to Arkansas or Tenn.you can email me at email@example.comThanks
