Elizabeth Tunstall & Charles Lynch Adams

Looking for information on Elizabeth Tunstall (b. between 1750-1780) who married Charles Lynch Adams (b. abt 1755), who was the son of Robert Adams, Jr (1718-1789) and Penelope Lynch (1734-1785), who was the daughter of Charles Lynch (1705-1753) and Sarah Clark (1718-1792). There is much recorded about the Lynch, Adams and Clark families, much of which I can provide also, and yet I do not have a source for the parents of Elizabeth Tunstall.

I descend from one of Elizabeth's three sons, Thomas Tunstall Adams who married Matilda Ward. I have a complete family tree of all descendants (seven generations) of one of the children of Thomas and Matilda, namely, Henry Ward Adams who married Annie Pauline Floyd.

I saw one of your postings and wondered whether your Elizabeth Tunstall, born 1758 to Thomas Tunstall and Ruth Vicory, might have married Charles Lynch Adams. It is most likely they would have married before the death of her father in 1788.

Can anyone shed any light on this marriage (it would likely have occured in the proximity of what is now Lynchburg, VA) and who the parents of my Elizabeth are?

Elizabeth and Charles Lynch Adams had children:

i Charles Lynch Adams, Jr.
ii Robert Adams (named for father's father)
iii Thomas Tunstall Adams (presumably named for mother's father)
