I was wondering if anyone ties into this Eads line, specifically to the Bartlett Eads who marries Dicey and lives in Mississippi. I believe he was from Amherst County as well.
1. Isaac Eads was born circa 1755 in Amherst County, Virginia and died circa 1816-17 in Stokes County, North Carolina. His first marriage is not known, but his second marriage was to Sarah Bibie on 23 September 1799 in Amherst County, Virginia. The will of Isaac Eads (Wills of Stokes County, N.C., Book #3, page 13, FHL film #546241) was made on 21 July 1816 and signed in the presence of James Griffin and Henry Campbell. Executor of the will was Charles Griffin. In a later will he bequeaths to his wife, Sarah, “my house, land where I now live and containing one hundred and one acres joining Charles Griffin.” The will mentions the following children: Robert, William, Bartlet, James, Isaac, Sharlot, Elizabeth, and Polly.
2. Bartlett Eads born circa 1785 and married Martha Brewer/Bruer. “Our great grandfather Bartlett Eads married Martha Brewer/Bruer on 2 March 1811 in Stokes County, North Carolina. The marriage bond was signed by Bartlett Eads. In 1819 Bartlett Eads got into trouble with a man named Thomas and left the country and never was heard of after that. Their children were William Henry, who was born 16 June 1813 in Stokes County, North Carolina, Winston Eads and Matilda Eads.”
