Genealogy of Adam Sherill's family listed in "Sequachie Families" by James L. Douthat.

From USGenweb Archive: [1596] Fought in the battle of King's Mountain. December 1780 in the battle of Boyd's Creek. Land grant from North Carolina on the Little Limestone River in Washington County. In 1783 he paid taxes on 200 acres on Polular Creek. Has son Enos who married Mary Abernathy and daughter Catsey who married Robert Samuel Ma- han of Roane County (these children's mother is unknown).


(Source: Roots of Roane County TN, by Snyder E. Roberts, page 174-5--Write up on SHERRILL "Adam Sherrill's name is on the 1801 petition to erect Roane County. He was in Capt. Gray Simms militia company in Roane in 1802 and his name appears in various Roane records including the 1805 tax list. Capt. McElwee mistakenly has Adam living on John Sevier's land on the Clinch River. Adam bought (A, p.102) 290 acres of land on Main Poplar Creek from John McClellan which was registered in 1802. …………Adam Sherrill's farm would have been near the old Emery Road, and in addition to the Henleys, he would have enjoyed such fine neighbors as Rev. War soldier Arden Evans and Alexander Mahan. In 1807, Adam Sherrill sold (B. p.335) 280 acres to Arthur H. Henley, and another tract to Nathaniel Cox in 1808.

By 1801, Adam had moved to Bledsoe County, TN. In 1819 he sold (Bledsoe Book D, p 38) a negro girl named Ester to Robert Samuel Mahan who had married (1804) Catsey Sherrill (probably Adam's daughter) in Roane County. In 1826, Adam sold (D.p.267) two tracts of land in Bledsoe to Samuel R. Sherrill witnessed by HENRY H. SHERRILL. In 1826, Adam sold (d, p 277) to his son Charles K. for love and affection a negro boy named Edward age 8 years. Also in 1826, he executed a deed of gift (D, p 273) to his son Craven for 110 acres where Adam then lived which adjoined Charles K. Sherrill, and a deed (D, p 268) for a negro woman with Craven to have possession after the death of Adam's widow.

Although the names of Adam Sherrill's children are not readily available, some are known. Adam's children included: 1. CRAVEN (1801-1864) mar. Mary A. Branson. His mother was Rebecca Kilgore Sherrill. He lived in the part of Bledsoe that was later in Cumberland Co. after 1855. 2. CHARLES KILGORE, 3 ENOS married Mary Abernathy. 4. HANNAH (by Mary) married (1796) William Houston in Green Co. TN. 5. A probable daughter was CATSEY Sherrill who married (1804) in Roane , Robert Samuel Mahan. The SAMUEL R. and HENRY H. SHERRILL mentioned above as being in Bledsoe Co. where possibly sons or at least closely related. JESSE B. Sherrill who married (1806 in Roane) Polly Francis seemed to be closely associated with William Sherrill in Roane, but Jesse B. removed to Bledsoe County where he bought and sold lots in the town of Pikeville in 1821. Of course, Adam and other Sherrills in Bledsoe County were only a hop, skip, and a jump from his sister, Bonny Kate, when she lived in Overton County, TN."
