Thanks Linda. It certainly seems the families should be connected, however I have never found any connection or relation. Unless there was family feud one would think somewhere a relationship would occur. Another theory is that Archibold was from Md, some naming patters and occupations would certainly indicate a strong possibility, but again nothing to connect. There is a connection with the Moye and Brooks families by Archibold II's children and grandchildren. William and Thomas also run in this family but no Abraham. Do you know who the William Adams was that pattened land in 1749 Beauford Co?
