Classification: Query

I assume that the Miles Adams listed here (in your outline) is the same Miles Adams who was s/o William Adams of Newberry. Yes?

This Miles (s/o Wm of Newberry), and his brother Zackfield/Sackfield Adams, caught my attention because they also removed from Newberry SC to Giles TN, and I was trying to sort out the various Adams folk in Giles. These Wm Adams' of Newberry SC interacted with my Davenports of Newberry. Then a couple of the boys show up on Jenkins creek in Giles. Could you confirm this Miles of Giles is the same as Miles s/o William of Newberry?

more importantly....
Could you tell me which David Davenport this is in this outline ( = who were his parents )? I have at least five David Davenports in my file and most "need a wife & family".
