Looking for John Adams b ca 1802 VA, wife Ailsey b ca 1813 GA or VA, who were in Christian Co from about 1837 to 1850. Last child born in Ky was Louisa Harriet b ca 1850,Saline Co IL 1850 census has them with Louisa only a few months old. Is there a John Adams on the 1840 Christian Co KY census? (I have sent for the census book,will be a while before I obtain it)
Story goes that John left his family and went trading with the Indians, I do not know how long he was gone but when he returned the family was gone, probably thought he was dead. He evidently spent a while looking for the family, according to family lore he didn't ever find them. He was in TN before he came to Christian Co Ky, I haven't located him there either. But suspect he was in some of the counties below the Chr. Co area, there were many VA Adamses down there.
Anything would probably help, thanks for reading.
