I have the Addison family bible in my possession. Birth and death dates are inscribed inside. Elizabeth Addison's birth date is listed as April 2, 1772. My records show that Mark L. Addison Jr. died on January 1, 1849. Mark, Jr. was a member of the Ware county militia and fought the Creek Indians, as did Mark Senior.
If you have any information about the elusive MArk Addison, please share. :) I have been intrigued about when our family came to America and where they lived before. I remember my grandfather saying that before Mark L. or his forebears had come from England by way of Barbados. There was some mention of privateering or something of that nature... Tantalizing tidbits, but perhaps distorted by time and my perception as a child.
