My name is Louie E. Adams Jr. and I live in Brownsboro, Henderson County Texas.I saw your post and was wondering if there is not a connection between your Adams and mine. I have been told by some that some Adams Kin moved to the Kaufman area in the late 1800's.My family originated in SC around mid 1700's, moved from SC to GA to AL to MS and then to Texas.My grgrgr Grandfather was James Adams son of William and Joanna Adams. James came to the Lake Caddo area around 1838 or so with a land grant from the Republic of Texas.His wife's name was Lois G. Adams. They were a wealthy family, with considerable money, land and slaves.He died in 1845 and Lois died in 1847 in the area around Marshall TX.The kids for the most part were left orphans and were fairly well taken for all the parents had by the guardians.There were three sons that I can confirm, William my grgr grandfather, John and James.William had many children and was captured at Vicksburg in 1863.William and his wife Mary Jane Johnson Adams lived in Upshur County Texas.They are both buried there. Does any of this sound familiar.Let me know if you think I can be of any help.I have done considerable research on my family.
