My wife is also descended from Adam via Henry and Lucy.I have a copy of Adam's will that I made at the Abbeville Probate Court about five years ago in the location Fred Saunders has described in his response to your posting.In it Adam mentions "...my three Dec'd [deceased] children --- Henry Wideeman, Rachael Wilkes, Elizabeth Marrs..."This will is dated 24 June, 1840. Adam's year of death as inscribed on his tombstone is 1841.His will was filed for probate in 1842 and witnessed by William Harris, probably his wife's brother.
There are also two plats for land grants to Adam and his father Henry that have survived the courthouse fires in Abbeville.Adams grant of 100 Acres, survey by John Cowan dated 11 January 1788, is shown on page 229 of NINETY-SIX DISTRICT, SOUTH SIDE OF THE SALUDA RIVER, COMMISSIONER OF LOCATIONS, PLAT BOOK "B, located at the Probate Court in Abbeville.The plat for Henry's grant of 200 acres is on Page 120 of PLAT BOOK "A".That survey, by Robert Anderson, is dated 11 September 1784.
You May also be interested in a microfilm record I found at the South Carolina Department of Archives and History in Columbia.The microfilm is part of a set called "Audited Accounts of Claims Growing out of the Revolutionary War in South Carolina".Adam's records are on Roll No. RW 2841, AA No. 8483, frame Nos. 406-410.I think you can order copies by phone or by mail.The microfilm includes records showing certification by the South Carolina Treasury of Adam's service in the South Carolina Militia during the Revolution and authorization for payment for his services plus receipts signed by Adam and an assignment in Adam's handwriting of "...my whole Right and Title..." to further payments to Henry Wideman.This assignment is dated 19 January 1786.Adam's son Henry was not born until about 1788, so this assignment must have been to his father, who's will was dated 1803 and probated in 1806.
