      1826 Nov 20: Marriage bond for Solomon C. Bradley and Harriet Kime. Surety, Adam Given. [Bath Co Marriages, p.67]

      G.W. Cleek includes court records that show that Adam and Nancy Given adopted Harriet and Sarah Kimes, daus. of Abraham Kimes & Mary O'Hare, in 1814 when Abraham moved to Ohio with his 2nd wife. He includes full details of Harriet's marriage and children. Sarah md. John Cleek II on Jul 14, 1825., who I assume is the John serving as executor here and that Sally Cleek is Sarah Kime Cleek.

      G.W. Cleek also has lots of info on this Givens family, but unfortunately does not mention Wm.G. Ayres to account for why Adam Given would leave his daughters property, as if they were grandchildren.
