Hi Elaine ! Joshua Adcock of Chatham/Caswell Co. NC is my 5th ggfather. I recently had the honor of introducing him into the DAR patriot index. His father is indeed Edmond Adcock of Caswell Co NC. There is a document in NC archives in which Edmond gives all his assets to his son Joshua. In return Josua agreed to "maintain him" until his death. This is dated oct 10, 1800 and was filed in court Nov. 1801. It was filed in Chatham Co. NC
For more on Joshua's service contact the National Archives in Washington DC. ALSO he was written about in the book "North Carolina in the Revolutionary War" chapVI pg123.
Josua's will & estate packet form 1852 lists these children: Edmond Adcock John Adcock Elizabeth Adcock-Gee Nancy Adcock-Wallace Jane Adcock-Wallace Anderson P. Adcock Henry Adcock William Adcock Dolly Adcock-Myrick
