THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN OPINION ABOUT ADAM BEAN
Name: Adam Dean
Given Name: Adam
Note: From Pedigree resource file on LDS submitted by Roger Settlemire, but birth date is not right to be father of Elizabeth Anna Dean. Something seems confused since he has Adam Dean as the son of Robert Dean and Nancy Davidson Martin. Nancy Davidson Martin marrried Robert Dean Jordan, who is a son of Stephen A. Jordan. This would make Nancy her own great granddaughter-in-law! :-)

12/31/2001: From HVJ:
Dear Mona and Nanci,
Sorry, but I don't think I can help. As far as I know, there is no connection between anyone of the Majors family and the Edmondsons/Edmistons. Ditto for Adam Dean, although I have not looked into his family at all deeply. Adam's first wife was Eleanor Tees/Taze/whatever, as I recall, and he had a bunch of kids from her. I have small data on all of them, and no sign of a Majors. I am not sure how William Love gets into the picture, nor exactly who he is. If my memory is correct, he may be the father of Joseph Love, who m. Mary Tees/&c. Joseph's brother Samuel m. Dorcas Bell and begat three boys who m. into my Dillard family, which is why I know anything at all about this bunch.
I know nothing at all about Samuel Smith, so cannot help there. I see that he probably had a wife Sarah, since she also witnessed the Dean will in 1787.
Sorry that I cannot help more. The only contact I remember with a Majors family is actually a Major family without the s in Essex Co. VA in the early 1700's. Priscilla Major m. George Dillard and they moved to Culpeper Co. VA. She was the daughter of John or Samuel and wife Constance Ironmonger. Here are two wills that gives some family detail (and about all I have on them):
Middlesex Co. VA, 4 Nov. 1750, will of Richard Major, pr. 4 June 1751. Richard Major of Middlesex Co., bequeaths horse and life interest in his lands, then to be divided between brothers Samuel, George, John and Ironmonger, and my Nephew George Dillard. Excrs. brothers Samuel and John. Wits: Tho. Price, Rob't Price, Tho: Trice. Also, an unchecked reference to Virginia Colonial Records, re: persons living in King and Queen Co. 1700-1760, says that on 4 June 1751, on motion of John Major, excr. of Richard Major, John Foster, Nicholas Dillard, Henry Collins and Samuel Shepherd appraised the estate.
Culpeper Co. WB A, 396. Will of Constance (x) Major, 26 Nov. 1764, pr. 18 Apr. 1765. To daughter Priscilla Dillard, bed and residue. Bequests to other children. Son-in-law George Dillard and grandson John Dillard, excrs. Wits: Robert Eastham, Thomas Hutchings, John Latham, Margret (x) Ham.

By the way, as per my previous e-mail, William Love who was also a witness you list on the will of Adam Dean, was probably a minister or justice of the peace. At least there was a William Love who performed a marriage in Wythe Co., VA, in 1793.

Nancy, I'm taking a long shot here and hoping that you may help me connect to my ancestor THOMAS MAJORS. I saw your info on Adam Dean at Ancestry.com.
My ancestor, THOMAS MAJORS, was granted a military land grant in Wythe County, VA, described as "150 acres adjoining the lands of Samuel Smith and Adam Dean." I then see in your will of Adam Dean that Samuel smith was a witness. I'm trying to locate the name of the wife of my ancestor, Thomas Majors.
I even wondered if Thomas' son, Robert Majors, married either a Smith daughter or a Dean daughter about 1797.
If you think we can connect, or if you have other historical references that would help me in my serch, I would certainly appreciate it. My ancestor, Thomas, and son Robert, went into Blount Co., TN, where Thomas died about 1809, then Robert moved into Kentucky (both Warren Co. and Barren Co.).
Any help is appreciated or ideas in other resources I might check on.
