Yes your John is son of Adam who remained in Bedford Co. This line intermarried several times with the Thompsons . Some of them later went to Ark . There is a lady named Nita who has all those Trollinger /Thompsons . I think if you go to Bedford Co TN Genweb site you will see her posts. I have not posted her in abt 2 years. But she has all of Adams line.

Now the reason they left NC was because they lived in the area of Alamance and Guilford Courthouse burned and etc in 1775. The Moravian/Germans and Baptist and Quaker and others fled in a caravan of over 500 led by Daniel Boone over the Cumberlands to safety. At least 12 or more had been hung in the courthouse square. They were given one day to clear out. They had no time to sell land or anything. After the war they came back to NC to their own lands but again they were treated as Tories or loyalists so sold out and went to TN in 1806.

Hope this helps Pat
