Aaron's first wife's given name was Amy. They were in Delaware Co IN in the 1860 Census. Aaron gave his age as 34, born in IN. He was enumerated next to his brother James.

The online Roster of the 57th Regt, Indiana Infantry, lists Aaron Adamson in Company K. He enlisted as a private and was a private when mustered out. That is probably this man.

By 1870, he had a new wife. Susannah, age 23, born in Ohio. She possibly had been the widow Susannah Hudlaw as there was a 2-year-old boy, Edward Hudlaw in the household.

Although the Pike Family History had a date of death in 1881, I have been unable to find a trace of this family in the 1880 census.
