Hi, I've been doing a bit of compiling on my ADEN line.I have a Bennett ADEN Sr (If that's his name) with three chidren born about 1770s in VA:Hannah, John, and Bennett.
I have a little bit on everyone, but I mostly concentrated on the male lines.I descend from Bennett's oldest son, Simeon, by his oldest son, Ira.I do have info on his two brother's descendants, Sidney and Harvey.Those two seem to have been more popular as you don't see any more Simeon's, but there are PLENTY of Harvey/Harve's and Sidney's as well as Bennett's and Clinton's.
I did a lot of work in Tennessee with other researcher's help.I was trying to figure out some mystery ADEN's that turn up in Benton & Carroll & Gibson Counties.This is where Simeon's oldest children stayed.The big problems being Albert & Malvina.Albert had a mess of boys and then his first wife died and he married again in late 1850 and he has a daughter and was deceased by 1860.Second wife does NOT have the boys in 1860.They seem to be all over the place.Malvina, I don't know what to make of the children she had before she married Gideon Spellings.There seem to be four:Winston Pate, Harve K, Victoria, and Sidney Green.Their last names change through the census, and I have no idea who there Daddy is, a Pinkston, I imagine.William Pate is an ADEN in 1850 & 1860 and with Micajah & Susan Pinkston.In 1870 he is married and now a PINKSTON.Harve, Victoria, and Sidney are Spellings in 1860 & 1870 but in 1880 and 1900 they are ADEN's.
Then there is Columbus & Clinton.Columbus is on his own in Carroll in 1870 and then there's a Henry C in 1880 & 1900 in Benton.I think they're one and the same.Clinton G is on his own in Benton in 1870 and on his own in Gibson in 1880 and married in 1900.I tend to think he is another child of Albert.I'd like to find all of Albert's children in 1860!
I'd like to know more on the daughter's lines.Most of what I have is online, I have linked my info here.My notes are attached to the people, usually to the ADEN in the line.Let me know what you think!Got anymore good documents and such?
