I have a Paten/Peyton Adams in my ancestry who was also from TN. He had a daughter named Susan, born in 1844. Other know children were Mary Ann, Aubrey and John. My Paten/Peyton's wife was named Nancy. I don't know if she was was his only wife or not. This is not a real common name so I hopethere is a connection to your line. Paten, Nancy and family moved from TN to LA sometime in the 1850's. Mary Ann married Robert Fulton Wooley. They had one son and named him James Peyton Wooley. Both the Adams and the Wooley's lived in and around Bienville Parish LA during the Civil War. They migrated on to Texas in the 1870-1880's. My Paten Adams is buried in Falls CO TX beside his wife Nancy.
