I saw an old message and thought I might be able to help. Someone was looking for the background of Nannie Russell Nowlin and William Armistead Nowlin, and thought they belonged to the Stephen Adams family. If you haven't found this yet, try looking for the family of Richard Wade Nowlin, who had a son named Armistead. Armistead is such an unusual name that I thought you might track this possibility. Richard Wade Nowlin b. 1778 was the son of Bryan Ward Nowlin I and his son Armistead was born 1811 in Pittsylvania Co. Virginia. Hope this helps.
