Would like to contactDolores M. Slayton (Mrs. C.H. Slayton Jr.), a descendant of Nathaniel Adams (1744- ??) and Mary Owen.She wrote the Westchester Co. NY Historical Society about him in 1978.
She said Nathaniel Adams left descendants in Omaha NE
Nathaniel Adams, blacksmith, was born in Greenwich CT and moved to Westchester Co. NY where he purchased property in 1770 in White Plains. He moved to Canada in 1783 but evidently either he or some of his children returned.Only known name of son was Samuel Adams, mentioned in his grandfather's 1772 will.
According to ships documents Nathaniel Adamsarrived in Canada with 3 children over 10 and 2 under 10.
