Adam's father was Richard Winningham, born 1750's. Was living in Randolph Co., NC in 1779. He died "before November 13, 1806". Adam had at least one brother who was also named Richard, born 1796 in NC and died 1893. The younger Richard married Polly Hooser, died 1893.
I am descended from both the younger Richard as well as Adam...Richard and Adam's great grandchildren Leann Winningham and Porter Taylor married each other (that makes them 3rd cousins) and they were my g-g-grandparents. I'm interested to know how you are descended from the Winningham line...perhaps we could exchange more info.
