◦"ADAMS - ELKINS CONNECTION; THE ELKINS E AGLE, VOL. II, NO. 2 FROM: [28E] MRS. OLA MARIE WEST, 653 HWY DD, DEFIANCE, MO 63341 ADAMS FAMILIES OF SOUTHERN KENTUCKY, DOROTHY GRIFFITH & ROBERT E.PARKIN, 1986, PG. 156; FAMILY # 2151, ZACHARIAH ADAMS (1760-1825)
ZACHARIAH ADAMS, a soldier in the 10th infantry of the North Carolina Continental Line during the Revolution, was born about 1760, apparently the eldest son of Moses and Ann (Handy) Adams. This family does not appear in Wilkes County until about 1786, when Moses Adams bought 100 acres on Swan Creek (Wilkes Deeds Cl:197 from JohnTurnbull). This land as well as Briar and Hunting Creeks are in the southeastern part of Wilkes, south of Yadkin River, where the border with Surry County was unsettled. As a result, Zachariah does not appear on Wilkes tax lists while Moses paid poll taxes in 1787 on Swan Creek and in 1791 on Briar Creek. Although, neither is counted in the 1787 Census, both are enumerated in 1790 (Wilkes Census 1790:123),Zachariah on Swan Creek with his wife, two sons and a daughter and Moses on Briar Creek with his wife, seven sons (one over sixteen years of age) and four daughters. A short time later, it appears, Zachariah and perhaps some of his brothers left for Kentucky.
On February 2, 1795 (Wilkes Deed D:161), Moses Adams assigned his 100-acre farm to his wife, Ann. However, this deed was not recorded until April 1797, indicating a date for Mose's death. Widow Ann Adams is counted in the 1800 Census of Wilkes with only two sons remaining at home. One probably was John Adams who was married a couple ofyears later to Ann Hundley. They remained in Wilkes County.
By 1795, Zachariah Adams and his family settle in Pulaski county, Kentucky. His wife died there in 1803, and on March 27, 1804 (PulaskiMR), he married Jane Clonch, widow of Christopher Clonch. They had no children. Zachariah Adams died in 1825, about sixty-five years old." [Transcribed 05 April 2007, SLJuhl, compiler]
