States: Ohio: Darke
correction... Elisabeth Adams who married John Henry Dinkins was not the daughter of John Adams (wife Elisabeth). She was the daughter of Jesse Adams and Rebecca Parker. My ggreat grandmother, Rebecca S. Dinkins Runyan was named after her grandmother... Rebecca Parker Adams. Also, John Adams was not married to Elisabeth Williams... Her surname was Fleming. So, John Adams m. Elisabeth Fleming in NC and had a son, Jesse Adams who married Rebecca Parker. Their daughter, Elisabeth Adams, married John Henry Dinkins of NC. These are the parents of my ggrandmother, Rebecca Dinkins Runyan. Have I confused you yet? Anyway, another researcher clued me in on my mistake and I now stand corrected.
I am still seeking info on John Henry Dinkins. I am told that his family may have been part cherokee and traveled to OH on foot with his family and indian relatives who left NC because of persecution or hostility. I know he shows up in the census for Darke co, 1870, I think. I would like to know when he died and where he and Elisabeth are buried, etc. Also interested in knowing who his parents were... if any other researchers might happen to know. I truly appreciate any help I can get. Thanks
