Sam A. Adams Estate
This is a small tract of land
situated just north of Reeds Mill on the opposite side of Second Creek. I had researched this some years ago with
interest in purchasing it; however, so many members of the
434 Ac. was purchased by Dickson from Johnson, Johnson and Nickell on Dec. 30, l910 and is recorded in Deed Book 44 at page 388. The origin of this property will show up in research of the Dickson property.
The tract that will become
S.A. Adams purchased this
tract from C.L & Mary Thomas on
Note: Due to the lax attitude of the Monroe Co. tax office, in earlier times, the residue from this survey was never corrected on the property cards leaving 1+ Ac. still in the Thomas name. This is what is called the Blackberry Patch and is still taxed to the Thomas family. I contend that this land does not now or ever has existed but I am sure the Thomas family would contest this idea.
S.A. Adams died on
All of these 8 children are now passed and their interest is therefore divided amount their heirs as follows: (Each original Sam Adams heir would have received 1/8 or 0.125% interest in the estate)
Mable Adams Reed and her husband are deceased: They have 5 children, therefore each child will retain 0.025% of the estate.
Harriet E. Adams Trent and her husband are deceased: They have 12 children, therefore each child will retain 0.01042% of the estate.
Trulyeon E. Adams and his wife are deceased: They have 3 children, therefore each child will retain 0.04167% of the estate.
Lucy E. Adams Waters and her husband are deceased: They have 3 children, therefore each child will retain 0.04167% of the estate.
Edward H. Adams: It is not known if his wife is alive or dead but they had 3 children and it is assumed they will have 0.04167% interest in the estate.
Virginia C. Adams McDowell and her husband are deceased: They have 2 children therefore each will retain 0.0625% of the estate.
Eva J. Adams Porterfield: It is understood that her husband is still alive. They had one child that is known but it is deceased. This estate will share in the 0.125% interest in the property.
Emma L. Adams Morgan: Her husband,
Bill, is alive and they have 2 children.
It will depend on when Emma passed away as to the disposition of their
interest, however, they will share 0.125% of the total
