The will of William Adams dated 6 dec 1838, Halifax Co., VA, gives everything to his wife and that all his property be devided after her death among all their children "with the exception of the part that my daughter Susan Rogers will get. I desire that my daughter Susan shall have the benefit of the property her life and after her death I give the same to my grandson John Rogers to him and his heirs forever." Information from the 1840 Halifax Co., VA census indicates that Peter had ten slaves, two males (age 10-23 and one age 35-54) and eight female (one age 36-54 and seven age 10-23). Peter must have died before 1850 because there is no census record of him or his slaves and his wife Susan was living with Daniel and Julia Merrit.
