    Cause of Death
    • 1) "Died possibly In Revolutionary War." Source: Epting Family by Rick Epting.

      2) "... there is no official record showing his date of death." Source: "A Hist of Epting & Epton Families of SC" by Theodore Epton. [see "Military" for further information on cause of death]
    Land, Property Cannons Creek, Newberry Dist, South Carolina, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [10
    • 1) "Adam Frederick owned, by royal grant, 150 acres of land on Cannon's Creek. He obtained 100 of these acres on 2 May 1770 and 50 on 5 Jun 1770. The 100-acre parcel partly adjoined lands owned by Messrs. Stack, Caller and Coleman. The 50-acre parcel (surveyed for Christian Lever) bounded lands owned by Messrs. Matthias Wicker, Henry Coleman, Peter Lever, and Simon Roberhover."

      2) "He [Adam Frederick Epting] and Christina had conveyed to Henry Black, John Adam's half-brother, 100 acres of land on Cannon's Creek on 26 Dec 1796."
    Military
    • American Revolution.

      1) "Adam Frederick Epting was a private in the Patriot Army during the American Revolution, and served in Colonel Benjamin Roebuck's Regiment of South Carolina Militia, for part of the time in Captain John Adam Summer's Company. It is quite possible that he was killed in the war, succumbing at the earlier date (1780). If the 1786 date of death is correct, then he may have died form old wounds contracted in 1779 or 1780. ... If we are to deem accurate the statistics in Lieut. Clarence Stewart Peterson's book ("Known Military Dead During the American Revolutionary War 1775-1783"), then we must accept his data entry that Adam Frederick Epting was killed in battle in 1780. The only military engagements of Colonel Roebuck in 1780 were at Cedar Springs (under Colonel James Williams) in August, and at Blackstocks (under General Thomas Sumter) in November. If indeed Adam Frederick Epting was killed in the war, then it is probable that he was a casualty of one of these battles."
