Message Board Post:

From what I can tell, from 1800 to 1823, except for a tiny corner which was Montgomery in 1800-1805, all of what is today Morgan County was in Floyd County, Kentucky.

As to more information on the William Adams's listed in my message: I was trying to sort them in order to see how they fit into the other Adams families, many of which were linked to "Old John Adams", who is believed to be John Hobbs Adams, Jr. who died in Floyd County, KY in 1815. (John was married first to Nancy Caudill, and married secondly to Lydia “Lettie” Simpson.

Below are the complete texts from Charles Well's "Annals of Floyd County, Kentucky- 1800-1826" that reference William Adams:

Page 41, Deed Book A, 1808-1818:
“14, Nov. 1817: Indenture from John Carman to WILLIAM ADAMS in the amount of $30.00 for 50 acres on the North Fork of the Kentucky River, near the mouth of Rock House Fork.”

Page 80, County Court Book 1, 1808-1818, June Term 1812:
“WILLIAM ADAMS appointed Constable to replace William Cordill, who had resigned. David Morgan, Spencer Adams and Ambrose Garland securites in the amount of $1000.00.”

Page 113, County Court Book 2, 1808-1818: January Term of Court- Monday, January 27th, 1817:
“WILLIAM ADAMS appointed surveyor to replace Miles Terry, removed.”

Page 121, Marriage Bonds, 1808-1818:
“Bond dated 24, Oct. 1809 by WILLIAM ADAMS and Spencer Adams for a marriage shortly to be had between WILLIAM ADAMS and Mary Adams.
This is to certify that I am willing for WILLIAM ADAMS to

(S) John Adams”

Page 131, Marriage Bonds, 1808-1818:

“This is to certify that I, Achelous Craft and Elizabeth,

Page 262, Marriage Bonds 1818-1826:

Page 267, Marriage Bonds 1818-1826:

(S) WILLIAM ADAMS

Page 271, Marriage Bonds 1818-1826:

Indemnify you for the same.
21, January 1823(S) John Evans”


Page 300, Marriages:
“WILLIAM ADAMS, groom; Christine Crace, bride; Date: Feb. 14, 1818”

Page 308, Marriages:
“William H. Adams, groom; Eunice Evans, bride; Date: Jan. 22, 1823”

There appear to be at possibly five William Adams in the area. One had daughters of marriageable age, Sarah and Mary. There were four marriages listed for a William Adams.

The William Adams who married (and later divorced) Eunice EVANS, is believed to be the son of MATTHEW ADAMS. Matthew was a first cousin to John H Adams Jr.

BTW, Elizabeth the wife of Archilous CRAFT was the daughter of John Hobbs Adams Jr.

Stephen Adams, son of John Hobbs Adams Jr., married Mary "Mollie" WEBB. Their son William Adams, b 1802, is the "Uncle Billy" Adams of Magoffin County, Kentucky. He was married to an Elizabeth Williams in 1826

Spencer Adams, brother of John Hobbs Adams Jr. and wife Nancy Towsin, had a son William, but he is to young to be the father of your Elijah.

Hope there is something in all of this that you did not know and that will help you.
