My husband is also descended from Edward Connaway and Tabitha White, through their son James Ellison (J.E.)Adcock, b. abt 1823 NC, died 17 Sept/Oct 1885, Thackerville, Indian Territory.
I have recently been trying to get J.E.'s sibling files in order and wonder if you have a date and place of death for Jonathan Adcock Jr. Also, did his wife Sarah remarry after 1870?
If you come across the origin of J.E.'s middle name "Ellison," please let me know.J.E. named a daughter Amanda Ellison Adcock (my husband's great grandmother), so there probably was a significant connection to the Ellisons in either the Adcock or the White family.
