    • Went by "Adam"
      One of 14 Children, Maria, Catharina, Peter, Christman, Anna Maria, Sarah, Anna Margaretha, Christina, Elisabeth, Anna Barbara, Johannes, Johann Adam, 2-Unnamed

      Adam had two sons named John Jacob, one born 23 Jan. 1766, in Monocacy, Frederick Co., MD, and one born 1 August 1772 in Monocacy. Presumably the first one died. In accordance with German naming customs, John Jacob Binkley would have been called Jacob.

      Chicago and Nashville:
      THE GOODSPEED PUBLISHING CO.
      1887


      It is not known just when or where the first settlement was made in
      the territory now composing the county of Cheatham. The earliest ac-
      count is that of Adam Binkley, who settled with his wife and sons, Ja-
      cob, Peter, Joseph, Frederick, Henry and Adam, Jr., on Sycamore Creek,
      near the present village of Sycamore Mills in the year 1780; but this is
      probably a mistake as to date. The first settlements were made along
      the streams where many sparkling springs were found.

      Sycamore Mills is located in the picturesque valley of Sycamore
      Creek, at the terminus of the Hyde's Ferry Turnpike, and about four
      miles north of Ashland City, and is the site of the famous sycamore
      Powder-mills. The scenery round about it is "romantic and wild," and
      beautiful beyond description. The bluffs on either side of the valley
      rise to an elevation of about 200 feet. The best view, perhaps, is ob-
      tained from the site of the old Millwood Institute, where one may stand
      and view the hills of equal altitude beyond the village, and observe that
      the tallest sycamore trees in the valley will not reach half way up to the
      line of vision. The waterpower at this place is considered the best
      within sixty miles of Nashville. Its available power for all seasons of
      the year is equal to 250 horse-power. A pointed bluff extends into the
      valley from the south, and gradually descends and narrows down to a
      width of about thirty feet, at which point it is only a few feet above the
      creek, and then it rises and widens gradually, forming a long ridge, and
      comes to a point about 100 rods farther out in the valley. The foot of
      this bluff and ridge is washed by the creek, which travels a distance of
      two miles in a horse-shoe bend and returns to a point within 600 feet
      from the narrow place in the ridge above described. At this place the
      creek is dammed, and the water conducted through a race-cut across the...
