Born 1806, or 1808, according to Bible record. [1808 seems most likely based on the 1850 census.]

Moved from Lost Creek Monthly Meeting to Duck Creek in Henry Co IN in 1831.

Seth Adamson: 1m 30-40, 1f -5, 1f 5-10, 1f 10-15, 1f 20-30 [probably this man - Evan & John probably his nephews, Thomas possibly a nephew, too]

In the 1850 Census in Madison Co, IA.
Seth Adamson, age 42, b. TN; Rody, age 33, b. IN
Hulda, 20, b. TN
Mary H. 17, b. IN
Aaron M. 14, and Solomon, 10 - all b. Indiana

The family may have moved from Blount Co TN to Indiana, then Missouri, and Iowa between 1830 and 1850.

Seth had a second marriage to Rhoda, surname unknown. Some of the children are hers, but there is not distinctive gap in the birth years of all the children. I did not find the marriage in the Indiana marriage database. A WikiTree database has a marriage to Rhoda Elizabeth Mills, 23 Jul 1835. Aaron would have been her first child.
