About a month ago I got some help from a researcher.She has Bennett ADEN b. 1740 in England or Scotland as the furthest back, with his children being: 2.John ADEN b. 1771 VA 2.Bennett ADEN b. 1771 VA d. 1858 TN
Bennett Jr. appears to be the father of the furthest of the one I had found, Simon Van Winkle ADEN.
Bennett Jr. married Martha DICKEY and they had: 3.George ADEN 1794-1794 GA 3.Simon Van Winkle ADEN 1795-1870 MS 3.Dorinda Davidson ADEN 1798-1872 TN 3.Lucinda ADEN 1800-1861 KY 3.Tolbert ADEN 1802-1803 SC 3.Martha Matilda ADEN 1804-1855 MO 3.Sidney Bennett ADEN 1806-1879 TN 3.Harvey Elam ADEN 1808-1884 TN 3.Adolphus ADEN 1811-1813 SC 3.Josphine Talina ADEN 1814-1874 TN
Simon married New Jersey WILLIAMS (what a name!!) and they also had a bunch of children!The oldest is my ancestor and he was either born in Benton Co. TN or he moved there.
4.Ira H. ADEN b. 1817 4.Albert B. ADEN b. 1819 4.Melvina Caroline ADEN b. 1822 4.Alfred A. ADEN b. 1824 4.Harvey S. ADEN b. 1826 4.Matilda J. ADEN b. 1828 4.Lucinda ADEN b. 1830 4.Emily E. ADEN b. 1832 4.Sidney ADEN b. 1834 4.W. Elbert ADEN b. 1834
Ira married Jane UTLEY, who has a long, researched lineage, in 1839 and I know of two children they had: 5.Riley ADEN b. 1840 5.Henrietta ADEN 1842-1922
Henrietta married James Monroe COLE and they stayed in Gibson County, TN for a long time.
Do you recognize any of this?Can you go further back or elaborate?
