There are now five Adams-surname males descended from John Adams, carpenter of the Northern Neck who have participated in the Adams Y chromosome DNA project. While a pattern is beginning to emerge, there are not enough participants yet for the DNA results to establish relationships. What is needed are others who can trace their ancestry to John Adams and wife Eleanor of Halifax Co VA, Nipper Adams of the same location, John "Hobbs" Adams of Fairfax Co VA, Absolem Adams of the same location - brothers Abraham, Daniel, Jacob, and Isaac of Goose Creek, Rowan Co NC and Kentucky. We have also found a descendant with roots in Alabama and Oauchita Arkansas. If you are descended from one of these men or from any other of the Northern Neck Adams, your participation will not only help you to establish your connection but may help other Adams researchers whose research is stalled.
