Does anyone know if there was a realationship of the Linton/Scaff/Adcock families in Currituck Co. NC late 1700's/early 1800's?
From the NC Archives: Tuesday, Sept. 1, 1801 "Came into Court James Scaff alias Linton orphan of Lazrus Linton decd. and chose Solomon Alcock guardian who offers Thomas Williams & Jeremiah Mercer Junr. securities...1,000 pounds."
Although the name is spelled Alcock here, I believe it is Adcock and this is probably the Solomon son of Jesse Adcock of Granville Co. NC.
I am trying to determine if there was any type of family relationship between these families. There was a relationship between the Scalf and Capps family as well as the Linton/Scaff family but I do not know about the Adcock/Scaff or Scalf family. Most often, orphans chose family members for guardians if at all possible.
