There was a couple of Samuel C. Aydelott's in my file and their date of birth did not match to your Samuel C. Aydelott.The one you were alking about was several years older and I had enough information to know he was not yours because of the names and other information you provided me.
I never found out why Samuel C. was one of the Tennessee Aydlott's given .There is alot not known about these early brothers who left NOrth Carolina and migrated in the wilderness of now Tennessee.
Am certain tho that your Samuel C. Aydelott belongs to the North Carolina Aydlott line because of his name .I found only one Aydelott family living in Tn that I could not pin down to the NOrth carolina Aydelotts.They were from Virginia .
I think maybe if you investigate Maury County, Tn for those early Aydelott's you might find info on Zediah's family information???
I will double check some early misc Aydelott data to see if I can find any clues that might help you.And get back to you sometime soon.
