  • Note:
    *Note..1790 Onslow County North Carolina Census lists Penelope
    Adams with two white free females.and a Peny Adams is listed un
    the state Census of NC in Pasquotank Co. again with two white
    females in 1784-1787 (Cannot be sure this is her) She came to
    Montgomery Co. Ga around 1798. "Montgomery Co. Deec Book H,
    1809-1817" says on page 227 Penelapha (names often spelled
    phonically in those days)...Children Wiley,Shartol,Asa, Wit:
    Lameaul Williamson, Able Akredge, Nov 17 1812 (She married
    Lemeul Williamson)
  • Note:
    *Note..In July 1994 stated Shartol is Charlotte who married
    Arthur Davis in 1817, and Lulane McBride stated Penelope husband
    was John Adams
  • Note:
    **Note..The mother of PENELOPE was a TERRELL, and PENELOPE
    married one also.
  • Note:
    *Source :Jacob Adams.. Ancestry.com msg bd. Penelope was born in
    Virginia abt 1769/70 per 1850 census, and died after the 1850
    census when she lived with Matthias Adams. Not in the 1860
    census. A Penelope Adams is in the 1790 census of Onslow County,
    NC with two white free females. A Peny Adams is in the 1784-1787
    State Census of NC in Pasquotank County, again with two white
    females. Do these census entries mean she was Head of Household,
    her husband was deceased or she was not married? If born in
    1770, she was married, divorced, widowed or abandoned or had 2
    illegitimate children by age 12 at the earliest or 20 at the
    latest, unless they were twins. If not divorced, widowed or
    abandoned, she may never have married, making her maiden name
    Adams. If either of these are correct Penelope, then her first
    two children were born at least 10 years before available record
    indicate, ie she had two daughters that died before she came to
    Georgia, or they were left in NC????

    *Source: Adams Researchers, Karen Wood (karenwood@del.net) and
    Patricia A Dresselhaus (pdressel@sd.cts.com) wrote:The only
    explanation is Penelope Adams, daughter of Robert (Capt. Bob)
    Adams and Mary Lewis Terrell, did not die in childhood as
    reported by Robert's granddaughters in manuscript, but had
    severalchildren with the last name of Adams. When she married
    Lemuel Williams the children retained the name Adams. She had a
    child with Lemuel that also used the name Adams. Penelope lived
    on land in Georgia which was owned by a Robert Adams. Given that
    he likely recieved land for Rev. War Service, it is possible
    that Penelope is Robert and Mary's daughter, and never married.
    The granddaughters may have made-up the story that she died from
    burns as a child. If so, they probably wished she she had burned
    to death, as they were very "Proper" and this would not have
    been made known under any circumstances. They would rather she
    be dead than having illegitimate children. She could be a Adams
    that married an Adams, but Jake did not seem to find any
    evidence of a husband before she married Lemuel Williamson.
  • Note:
    *Penelope lived in Montgomery County, Georgia near Alamo &
    Glenwood,. Now known as Wheeler County.
  • Note:
    *1850 Census shows her living with her son Mathias Adams, but
    does not appear in the 1860 Census.

    *Lutrecia Adams Hunter The great
    granddaughter of Mathia C Adams writes in e-mail Oct 26,
    2003."In a book in the Ladson Library, on the Adams family in
    the 1700's. There was a John and Penelope Adams in Onslow Co. NC
    in 1790's Since most of the settlers of Montgomery Co. migrated
    through NC. . I think it might be productive to look in that
    area of NC for earlier ancestors"
