Meredith, I had to back off on Adams pursuit to see if something new could develop. When I read this again, I recalled some info that Ann Tunnelle had sent me:
Caswell Co., NC Wills 1777.1814. Book E 1806-1807, page 291.Will for John Chilton (II). W. 16 July 1806.Sons John (land on Fall Br.), Lemuel (husband to Rueben's sister, Susan) William, my 6 children, James, William, John & Lemuel Chilton, Polly Travis & Sally Travis.Exec. sons of James & William.Witness:Benjamin Williamson, Simon Adams, Sally Thompson.
Simon Adams in the 1803 List of Taxable for Caswell Co., with 452 acres of land.
Court Records for Caswell Co., NC under Estate of John Chilton:Orphan:Lemuel Chilton, page 126, guardian:William Chilton, year 1807.
Just more of what you have done, which may have been posted already. Perhaps Simon was in the RW and mustered out in VA.
