    • (1) Steelman, Sanford, The Starnes Family Four Generation Project <http://web.archive.org/web/20011224030918/http://www.trellis.net/steel/sta/fourgen.htm>:

      Adam Starnes (born ca 1732, died ca 1816) married Caroline Carlock?

      NOTE: At this time, there is no direct evidence that proves that Adam Starnes was the son of Frederick Starnes, Sr. However, circumstantial evidence seems to indicate this relationship. Adam Starnes first appears in the records of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in the mid 1760's, as having land on Dutch Buffalo Creek. The records of Mecklenburg County establish the presence of other sons of Frederick Starnes, Sr. in that same area (Leonard, 1764-1774; and Joseph, 1766-1774). It is assumed from the will of Valentine Starnes, that Frederick, Jr. was one of the older children of Frederick, and that Frederick, Jr.'s oldest son was John (ca 1745-1781). Thus if Adam occupied land (there is no record of him ever getting a deed for the land, only of there being an entry) in the mid-1760's then he should be a son, rather than a grandson of Frederick, Sr.

      p. 190:

      [I]n 1789 and 1793, old Adam I received two land grants totalling 450 acres in Greene County, Tennessee, evidently for his service in the French and Indian War from 1759 to 1760. This suggests that old Adam, at this time about sixty years or more of age, could have moved to Greene County with his nephews, Peter, John and young George. He spent his last years in east Tennessee and died there about the year 1806.
