My 2nd gr grandfather was Samuel Adams, married to Sarah Cotner, born in Harrison County, IN, died in Macon County, IL. I received his Civil War pension file not long ago. He was in an Indiana unit, deserted that unit, then joined a KY unit, was mustered out of the KY unit, then went back to the IN unit.
If anybody out there is researching this Samuel Adams family, I'd be glad to hear from you. After the war, Sam and his family lived in Big Spring, KY; Ft. Smith, AR; southeast MO; and finally Maroa, Macon County, IL.
