      • This census shows Francis Youree on the line above Adam. Francis is the person from whom George McDaniel purchased 100 acres of land in 1819.

        Also, because George McDaniel sells this 100 acres to Adam McElroy in 1835, I believe it is because the George McDaniel 100 acres are adjacent to Adam's property.
