Here are some records I've collected which may relate to your question.I myself am interested in Christopher of Franklin County, Ga. (1798 - 1861.)I think his father may have been John Addison and come from the Fairfield Co. SC Addisons.But Christopher is not a common given name and I think all these southern Addisons spring from the Prince George/Surry/Sussex Virginia Addisons.
