Hello: In researching my TN family Duncan/Williams/Nelson, I came across the following:
B-120: 15 Oct. 1838, Mark? Adcock, asinee? for John Adcock his father, to Stacy H.D. Duncan of Cannon Co., $126, "land in Cannon County which was Warren County" on B...ran (smeared ink)[believe this to be Barren's'] Fork of Collins River. (no acreage). Wit. John W.H. (X) Duncan, William Emsy, John Nelson. (FHL film 898,453)
Can anyone tell me more about this John and Mark Adcock? In the 1840 Cannon Co. census, John Adcock is living next door to my gggrandfather Oliver Duncan.
Also, there is a Mark Adcock who was murdered in TN around 1856. Could this be the same Mark? Thanks for any help, Rebecca
