Much of the Adams information below was gathered and privately published in 1954 by Rebecca Dougherty Hyatt. There are some dates and details which are more clear now, so I have corrected what I was aware of. Yet, I'm sure there are many places to be corrected. Remember to use this as a jumping off point for your own research, not the "treasure found".


John Adams & Esther Hawkins Adams


The source for much of my information on this Adams line comes from The Adams Family in America 1766 - 1954, a small booklet complied and distributed by Rebecca Dougherty Hyatt in 1954. I have recently updated the booklet and supplied many of the more recent dates.


FIRST GENERATION:
JOHN ADAMS: b. about 1760 - d. 1840 - m.1790 ESTHER HAWKINS -


John and Esther were married (1790) in Rowan County, NC.
John and Esther had 10 childred and I will include what I know of them now. I hope to soon have some additional information to use about some of the children who moved from Watauga County.
A very good source for much information on these pioneers is article # 71 in the "Watauga County NC Heritage, Vol. 1" Most of the other articles about "Adams" in this book are about decendents of John and Esther.


SECOND GENERATION:
1. Francis Adams: b1797 - d. 1864 - m. Rebecca Harmon - bef.- 1840
2. Squire Adams: b. 1799 - d. 1877 - m. Mary "Polly" Greene
3. Rachel Adams b. 1800 - d. 1834 - m. Jehiel Smith
4. George W. Adams b. ? - d. 1809 - no marriage
5. Sarah Adams b. 1802 - d. young - no marriage
6. Martha "Patsy" Adams b. 1808 - d. ? m. William Alexander - 1827
7. Tarlton Adams b. 1805 - d. 1877 - m. Celia Ward - 1824
8. Allen Adams b. 1807 - d. 1893 - m. Margaret"Peggy" Greene 1827
9. Elizabeth "Betsy" Adams b. 1810 - d. ? m. Enoch Greene
10. Alfred Adams b. 1811 - d. 1870 - m. Elizabeth "Betsy" Flannery 1839.


FRANCIS ADAMS married a Rebecca Harmon and went to the state of Illinois some time before 1840.
SQUIRE ADAMS married a Polly Greene from Meat Camp, Watauga County. They had thirteen children.
GEORGE ADAMS died young.
PATSY ADAMS married William Alexander and moved to Putnam County, TN.
TARLTON ADAMS married Celia Ward and moved to Wisconsin in the early days.
ALLEN ADAMS married Peggy Greene (sister of Squire adam's wife) and lived on Quinns Branch, near Cove Creek in Watauga County.
BETSY ADAMS married Enoch Greene and moved to Putnam County, TN, in the early days of Watauga County.
ALFRED ADAMS, youngest child of John and Esther Hawkins Adams, was born on Cove Creek in Wataugh county. He lived at his ancestral home, and his five children were all born there.
PLEASE NOTE: There are some sources which give Elizabeth "Betsy" as the youngest child, making Alfred the second to the youngest. My source gave it this way so I am leaving it this way for now.
