Fourth Generation


40. John ADAMSON was born on 26 August 1782 in Cane Creek, Orange County, North Carolina. He died on 22 February 1832 at the age of 49 in Henry County, Indiana.

There is no proof John is a son of Enos. I have found no proof that wife Ann was Ann Jackson.

This John would appear, just from the names of his children, to be related. The son John of Jesse T. Adamson who was in Cane Creek is said to have married Rebecca Leakey and died within a few years, leaving two orphaned children. A son John is not usually subscribed to Enos Adamson and Mary Love, but it would be reasonable to assume he also had one and he was also in Cane Creek. The two Johns, first cousins, would have been very close to the same age. This John also named his eldest child Enos.

John ADAMSON and Ann JACKSON were married circa 1802. Ann JACKSON was born on 10 October 1782 in North Carolina. She died on 11 May 1860 at the age of 77 in Indiana.

It appears Ann remarried after the death of John.

Enos appears on a list of children passed down with family papers. No other evidence - perhaps he died young.
