I'm almost positive I can't help you, but I'm writing to ask you to help me.

I am a descendant of William Adams, b. in Ireland in 1733 (per DAR records) or Tryon, NC (per undocumented family sheet). He was married to Margaret Ewart, again per DAR records, and they were married in 1752 in LIncoln, NC.

They are both buried in Bethel Presbyterian Cemetery in Clover, York County, SC. I just visited them.

Now your rather extensive post says that Margaret Ewart married Joseph Jack. Am I really off track here?

Margaret Ewart Adams was also allegedly named as a Woman of the Revolution in South Carolina for taking food and medicine to King's Mountain. This is from a second-hand source, the History of Rusk Co., Texas, where Margaret's grandaughter moved in 1863. It would make perfect sense for her to risk her life before the smoke cleared if not only her husband but her father and/or brother was up there as well. [I've never seen this "Woman of the Revolution" designation anywhere else. Have you ever seen it?]

If I've been researching the wrong families all this time, or have some generations royally mixed up, I'd really like to know. Thank you.
