A Margaret ADAMSON appears on a marriage bond taken out 1809 in Mason Co., KY by her intended, Uriah WIGGINS and her brother, Joseph ADAMSON. Apparently Margaret & Uriah were married, for they both appear as witnesses to Uriah's son in-law, William WHATLEY in Catahoula Parish, LA in 1815.
She is thought to be a daughter of Jesse T. ADAMSON and Mary WELLS. Uriah's apparent relative, William WIGGINS's daughter, Ruth WIGGINS married 1790 in Mason Co., KY to Aaron WELLS. I say relative, because 2 years after Uriah's [his 2nd] marriage to Margaret ADAMSON, Ruth & Aaron name their last born children, a set of twins, Uriah and Daniel WELLS. Coincidentally, Uriah WIGGINS sons by his 1st wife, were Uriah and Daniel WIGGINS.

I have Margaret Adamson, daughter to Jesse T. married to
George Pugh. The reason for this is because in Jesse
T.'s will, Margaret's last name is Pugh. There is a
marriage between Margaret Adamson and George Pugh in
1800 in Knox County, TN, and Jesse T died in 1825,
elminating the possibility that she married again in
1809. Perhaps this Margaret is the daughter of another
brother (Enos, Thomas, Jonathan?). They would have
known the Wells through Jesse T.

Most databases do have Margaret, daughter of Jesse T. & Mary Wells as the wife of George Pugh. The marriage was 29 Mar 1800. They had two children George R. Pugh who married Mary Hopkins, and Elizabeth Pugh who married David Crowder. Mary Hopkins said to be the daughter of a Stephen Hopkins (1790-1844) and Polly Adamson (1788-1840), a cousin.

Margaret ADAMSON and George Riley PUGH were married on 29 March 1800 in Knox County, Tennessee. George Riley PUGH was born on 10 August 1775 in Orange County, North Carolina. He died on 15 January 1852 at the age of 76 in Marion County, Illinois.
