Fourth Generation


61. Isaac ADAMSON32 was born on 9 April 1802 in Lost Creek, Jefferson County, Tennessee.5,18 He died on 25 March 1878 at the age of 75 in Henry County, Indiana.

Enos Adamson was surety for the marriage between Isaac & Jane.

Moved to Duck Creek Monthly Meeting, Henry Co IN in 1830.

He's in the Perry Twp, Wayne Co IN census in 1830
Isaac Adamson: 2m -5 [William & Ira], 1m 5-10 [Enos], 1m 10-15 [?], 1m 30-40 [Isaac]. 1f 5-10 [Mary should have less than 5], 1f 10-15 [?], 1f 15-20 [?], 1f 30-40 [Jane]
There were children who have been unidentified.

By 1840, he appears to be the only one of the Adamson brothers still in Henry Co:
Isaac Addamson, age 30-40, with his family.
Prairie Twp: 3m 5-10 [Havila, Thomas & Simon], 2m 15-20, 1m 30-40 [Isaac]
1f 10-15, 1f 40-50 [Jane], 1f 70-80 [probably his mother or hers]

There were other Adamsons in Henry Co in 1840 [probably not of this same family]:
Ebenezer & Nathaniel in Stony Creek Twp
Ebenezer was age 40-50, probably six children & spouse. 1m 5-10, 1m 10-15, 1f 5-10, 1f 10-15, 2f 15-20.
Nathaniel J. was 20-30, with spouse and young child

Isaac ADAMSON and Catherine Buffkin REDDING were married.5 Catherine Buffkin REDDING was born (date unknown).

Catherine was obviously married to a Buffkin. Whether or not she married also to a Redding, or if Redding might have been her maiden name is not known to me.

In 1870, after her marriage to Isaac Adamson, there is in the household Orama Bufkin, an eleven-year-old girl. Obviously Catherine's daughter.
