So comparing the will of Robert Adams recorded in Goochland County and the Deed of Mourning Adams recorded in Albemarle County, I ascertained the following facts:
I have also taken some facts from the book Albemarle County: Giving some Account of What it Was By Nature by Edgar Woods. That information will be in bold to differentiate between the two sources.
That Robert Adams died sometime before June 17, 1740, but probably not too long before that. So we could easily say that Robert Adams of Goochland County died sometime during 1740.
He had two sons
Robert and James Adams
We also know that he is a slave holder, but that he has strong ties to the Quakers.
I have more information from several sources which I will be addressing in the later days. Hopefully, I will be able to post on tomorrow, but the holidays are now upon us and there is much work to be done.
