Added info provided by Karen Raichle (#46840047):

"There is an entry in the Bible of Peyton Anderson of Jackson Co., TN which shows America Elizabeth Adcock was born the 15th of August 1852. Since Peyton Anderson died in Mar 1838 we know he did not make this entry. I have no idea who wrote the Adcock births on these pages, but there is an entry on the same page which reads "Presented to Joel Anderson the 21st April 1838 by Richard Brooks and Merlin Young" Joel was the youngest son of Peyton Anderson and the uncle of America E Adcock. Whether he wrote the entry or not I do not know, just that he owned the Bible after his father.

America was usually called "Merky" in Jackson Co."
