Recently I discovered a document that is an April 1856 application for bounty land drawn up by Margaret Adams of Pendleton CO KY formerly of Fleming CO KY where her husband William Adams applied for a Revolutionary War pension. In the explanation of her husband's service she states that her maiden name was Margaret Carr and that she married William Adams on February 19, 1811 in Washington CO PA. The maiden name of Adeline Traylor was Adams and she was born in PA ca 1828.
In the E E Barton one informant stated that she was a sister of Joe Cook. I found that she was related to Helen Eliza Adams and her sister Artimissia Adams who married Henry Cook of Pendleton CO KY. Helen Eliza Adams parents were reputedly Charlotte and Tillman Adams. Charlotte Adams was living in the household of Margaret Adams of Fleming CO in 1850 with both of her daughters (1850 Census).
Barnabus Traylor and his wife Adeline made statements on the application made by Margaret Adams. It seems highly likely to me that Margaret Carr Adams and William Adams were her parents. She named her first two sons Thomas (supposedly the father of William Adams) and William. Both of those boys died in 1958 from scarlet fever. She also named one of her sons Carr (five years old on the 1870 census) and one of her daughters Artemissia who must have been the "Aunt Missy" that my grandmother Ruth Ducker used to talk about.
I am looking for more information on the Adeline Traylor connection to the Adams of Pa and the Carrs.
