I have learned a bit more since posting my original message.My original data for Abbie Davis Noyes came from a sheet handwritten by either my great aunt or her mother (Elizabeth Adams' daughter.)I have found a birthplace/date for an "Abbie D. Noyes" in Haverhill MA on 13 Dec 1841 which would be just about right for my tree.That wouldn't seem to work out with the birthdate of your W.H. Adams.That, plus the fact that my Adamses seemed to have stayed in MA/NH, while yours headed west, leaves me in doubt as to whether we're talking about the same man here. It still could be, I just don't think so.I am intrigued by the Emma coincidence, as well as by your last name.Elizabeth Adams' daughter, Emma Jeanette, married a George Stevens Little in the MA/NH area!That doesn't really work out for us in any concrete sense, but is interesting.
I'll let you know if I come up with anything more.Thanks.
