Seeking information on the children of Matthew Adams who died in Rowan Co 1781. His will mentions wife Elizabeth; children Mary, Chloe, Frances, Walter, George, Rachel, Elizabeth, Diana, Nancy, Luke, Matthew. I'm hoping that his daughter, Diana, is the same Diana who married Joshua HICKS in 1794. Does anyone have a full copy of this will? I have only an abstract.

I have a copy of the complete Matthew Adams's Will that I made in Rowan County, North Carolina. Diane is only mentioned as a daughter and that he leaves to her a white heifer and negro Abraham. Have you worked Matthew back into Virginia? I picked up the Rev. War papers for Walter and he states they came to NC about 1761 and that he was raised in Loudoun Co., Va. Jodie

I think Walter was a bit off when he said that his family came to NC in 1761. His father, Matthew, bought 165 acres in Loudoun County in 1765 and he and Elizabeth didn't sell this land until 1767.
