Fourth Generation

79. Abel ADAMSON24 was born in 1808 in Tennessee.1 He died after 7 August 1833 at the age of 25 in Wayne County, Indiana.1

Abel married Sarah Stout, 12 Feb 1828. I doubt that he died on the same day as his sister Susannah on 11 Aug 1840 - likely one of these is wrong. His will was written in 1833 and he probably died sometime afterwards. The Wayne Co Will Book did not give a probate date. Indiana, Wills and Probate Records, 1798-1999
