Thank you Elisha,
I have seen the 1824 land grant in Adair. I'm trying to see which Samuel it might have belonged to as I don't believe it was mine.
My Samuel was in Hickman Co., TN in 1820. It just doesn't make sense to me that he would then return to Adair Co. before coming to MO. However, I could be wrong, like I said I'm tracking the other Samuels in order to narrow it down.
I appreciate your assistance.
