I am new to Adcock research. However I notice the reference to the father of Leonard Adcock being John Adcock with a will of 1780. North Carolina wills actually have a Leonard Adcock will of 1780 and a will of Leonard Adcock of 1797 (naming a son Leonard).
The 1780 will does not appear to have been transcribed only abstracted. 1780 ADCOCK, LEONARD, John, Bolton, Josebad, Sarah, Elizabeth, Robert; Connaway, Edward.
Note the semi-colon that distinguished Edward Connaway from the Adcock family. I suspect that this may have led (erroneously) to the mention of an "Edward Connaway Adcock". I suspect that "Bolton" may be the "Bolin/Bowling" of later records. I will be in a position in the new year to view this will.
