I just spoke w/ my father about the notes. He was unaware that a book about the Adcock's even existed. My grandmother died in 1963. She was confined to a bed for the last 8 yrs of her life and a wheelchair for several years prior to that. So we know she did not travel outside of the state and likely the county during that time. I suppose there is a possibility that Lawless contacted her but we think she would have passed that along to one of us. My father transcribed most of the notes when the paper started to deteriorate. I still have a few of her hand written notes and my father's transcription. Grandmother kept in touch w/ her and my grandfather's extended family members for many years. But, my grandfather gave away or destroyed everything in the end. What I put into posting #1612 is all she wrote about the Adcocks prior to her grandfather. No dates, just names. But, I didn't put in the paragraph about Henry and Joseph Cason... "Henry Adcock married Miss Theodocia Billips of near Richmond, Va. who died February 20th 1832, leaving an infant son named Joseph C. After the death of his wife Henry moved to Illinois leaving his little son Joseph C. with his grandmother Billips where he lived until he was eight years old, when his father returned and brought him by boat and on horse back to Illinois.His father had married a miss Jane Ingersoll in September 1834.Joseph Cason Adcock was born in Buckingham County Va. February 4 1832 and came to Illimois in 1840 and grew to manhood. There he married Miss Sarah Reed February 14 1850, by whom he had Jonathan, who died when 3 years old, Mary Theodocia, Charles Otis, Arthur Lee, twin sons who died in infancy and Frank Robert."
