Fourth Generation


37. Simon ADAMSON was born circa 1780 in North Carolina. He died between 1830 and 1840 at the age of 50 in Indiana.

It is doubful that all the children of Enos have been identified. This Simon is arbitrarily placed here and mostly because other children of Enos are known to have ended up in Indiana. His children have come from online databases except where I was able to find either marriage or census records.

He is the Simon Adamson who married Susannah Hopkins, 22 Feb 1809, Wilson Co, TN. Another marriage in Wilson Co was of a Polly Adamson to Stephen Hopkins, 21 Oct 1806. She is not a "known daughter" of Enos, but if one is his child, likely the other is.

In 1830, Joseph Lamb, thought to have married a daughter of Enos Adamson, was living in Wayne Co, IN.
Also found there were:
John Adamson, 1m -5, 2m 5-10, 1m 15-20, 1m 40-50. 1f 5-10, 1f 10-15, 1f 15-20, 2f 20-30, 1f 40-50.

Simon ADAMSON and Susannah HOPKINS were married on 22 February 1809 in Wilson County, Tennessee. Susannah HOPKINS was born in 1786 in North Carolina.

By 1840, Susannah Adamson was head of household, living in Harrison Co, IN. She had 1m 5-10, 1m 10-15, 1m 15-20, 1m 20-30, 1m 30-40, 2f 10-15, and herself, age 50-60.

Simon ADAMSON and Susannah HOPKINS had the following children:

Alexander H. ADAMSON was born in August 1823. He died on 26 July 1907 at the age of 83 in Harrison County, Indiana.

Alexander married Alazannah Powers, 24 Feb 1844, Harrison Co IN.

He is said to have married Mary Jane Cline before 1842; and Mary Hayworth, 22 Jan 1842, in Vigo County, IN. If his birth year of 1823 is correct - he was only age 15 in 1842. I doubt that these earlier marriages are the same person.
