Thank you for the follow-up to my posting from awhile back.I have seen conflicting information about John Adkisson, Sr.I believe that he is a brother to David rather than his son.This based on the Will of David and John's father, William Adkisson, which reads as follows:
FROM THE HALIFAX CO. WILL BOOK -- JULY COURT, 1801
Last Will and Testament
In the Name of God, Amen, I William Adkisson, Sen' Of Halifax County Virginia being in years and very infirm in body, and calling to mind my mortality, have thought it necessary to ordain this my last Will and Testament, Revoking all others heretofore made, which is as falloweth -- 1st I give and bequeath to my son Thomas Adkisson the land & plantation whereon I now live to him and his heirs for ever, also I give to my said Son my Still and cart all which I give to him and his heirs for ever. 2nd I give to my daughter Susannah Adkisson one feather bed and furniture, one cow & calf & one large chest all which I give to her and her heirs for ever. 3rd I give to my grandson Joseph Hewel son of Wyat Hewel one horse bridle and saddle and on gun all which I give to him and his heirs for ever. 4th I give to my Sons William, Jesse, & John Adkisson all my household and kiching furniture, also all of stock of every kind, consisting of horses, cattle, hogs, and sheep, to be equally divided amongest my above said Sons, all which I give to them & their heirs for ever. With respect to my Children (viz) David Adkisson, Sarah Hewel & Lettice Whitt, I have heretofore given them as much as I am able to give. I constitute and ordain Reuben Pickett, William Adkisson and Jesse Adkisson Executors of this my last Will & Testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 27th March 1801.
Signed Sealed and Delivered by William Adkisson, L.L. in presents of: Reuben Pickett X (his mark) John Adkisson William Collins Susanna Pickett Elizabeth Pickett
I agree with you that he moved to Tipton Co., TN and died in 1835.His death is supported by the following:
Court and Legal Notices Tipton County, Tennessee NOTICE
Is hereby given, that letters of administration having been granted to the subscribers on the estate of John Adkisson sen. dec'd.All persons indebted to said estate are requested to come forward and settle the same, and all those having claims against said estate, to present them within the time prescribed by law, or this notice will be plead in bar of their recovery.
B. F. STOKES JOHN ADKISSON, Adm'rs.
March 6, 1835 (Source: Randolph Recorder, Friday, March 6, 1835)
I also found that John Adkisson, Sr. married Sarah "Sally" Pickett on 14 Oct 1800 in Halifax Co., VA.Sarah's father, Rev. Reuben Pickett, was a witness to William's Will.Oddly, there was also a Rev. John Atkinson living in Halifax and was associated with the church of Rev. Reuben Pickett, so he is often beleived to be the John who married Reuben's daughter.The Rev. John Atkinson marries Mary Armistead on 06 Nov 6 1777, migrates to Franklin, Williamson Co., TN, and dies on 04 Apr 1837.
I'd be interested in knowing where you found that David sold his property to Jonathon Adkisson and that Louisa was the daughter of John/Jonathon.
