I received an email from Carol Adams asking about Elizabeth Adney and citing her birth date as I had given it here, but indicating that it should be earlier. I have searched Tappan Adney's original records, and have found that -- Eureka! -- he made a typographical error in the course of typing his data. In his summary of the children of Thomas Adney of Tennessee, son of Thomas of Virginia, he listed eight children, the seventh of which was Elizabeth, giving her birth date as April 17, 1855. I just looked at his detailed record of these children and I find that he shows her birth date there to be April 17, 1835 (died Aug. 12, 1890)! This detailed record was not included by me in my genealogy on the web, because I was concentrating on other members of the family. Elizabeth is shown as marrying William Sloan in Dearborn Co., Indiana, and having children Louisa A., John Bronson, William Frank, and Mary M., born August 21, 1861. Mary married December 21, 1882 George Henry Harvey, brother of Daniel T., husband of Lovisa, dau of Daniel Adney, ofthe Indiana line. Children: 1. Claude Augustus, b. Sept 18, 1884; 2 Hazel, b. June 12, 1889 - address New Lisbon, Henry Co., Ind. in 1921. Tappan Adney goes on to say that Elizabeth Adney married (2) Johnson Lafuse of Darlington, Ind., and had a son, Othello, b. Oct. 9, 1870. Note that Tappan Adney stopped gathering his data at about 1921.
I'm going to reply directly to Carol via email, but I wanted to make this correction here for general information of others.
