I'm descended from Abraham Watson (1789-1857) and his wife, Anne Adams (1798-1849). They were married in Nelson Co., KY in 1818 and moved to Harrison Co., KY around 1820 or so. Anne was the daughter of Benjmain Adams according to her marriage bond.

I am also descended from Abraham's brother, Samuel Goodin Watson (1793-1867) who married Delilah Adams (1804-1880) in Harrison Co., IN in 1821. I don't know who Delilah's parents were, but believe she may have been a sister of Anne Adams (wife of Abraham Watson), the daughter of Benjmain Adams.

I believe the Benjamin Adams in question was the husband of Elizabeth Henning/Hennan (stepdaughter of Richard Connor). They were married in Nelson Co. in April, 1798. Anne's birthdate fits closely with Benjamin and Elizabeth's marriage date - a perfect fit.

Anyway, I wonder if Richard Adams (1800-1880), Delilah Adams (1804-1880), & James W. Adams (1814-1884) of Harrison Co., IN are siblings of Anne (Adams) Watson (1798-1849)?
