My gggfather was Joshua Adams, b. 1801 in Halifax VA, d. about 1888 in Charlottsville, ??. Our Joshua's middle name was said to be "Mackletree" which is very close to Nipper Adams's wife Lucy McEndree's surname.Family stories say Joshua married a Pennsylvania Dutch girl who was a member of a religeous sect, don't know her name, but this forum says it was Marsha Johnson. Josh and family moved to TN, then to AL. Josh had a son Sanford M. Adams, b 1833. Sanford fought for the 12th AL Inf. in Civil War, wounded at Gettysburg, then moved to Texas to be with his sons. Joshua d. 1896 in Richmond, TX. His sons were James, Joshua, and Lewis (my grandfather). All buried in Richmond, Texas, Morton Cemetary. I have b. and d. dates of Texas Adams' if anyone is interested.
