I'm looking for a Samuel Adams, b.@1754-5, who set off from Botetourt Co.,VA, on 10 May, 1773 to find a new home in the wilderness of Kentucky.He was reported to be a cousin of James McCoun b.1744.
I have an excerpt from the Collins History Of Kentucky which describes the adventures of the company, including the death and torture of Joseph McCoun at the hands of the Shawnee Indians at http://members.aol.com/Susanella3/McCounhistory.htmlhttp://members.aol.com/Susanella3/McCounhistory.html
I'm curious about his connection as a cousin. Thanks, Susanella
