My mother in law is in her upper 70's. She has one surviving sister older. They are the 2 youngest children of JAMES/ANNA (ADAMS) ADAMS. I believe they lived on Spring Branch.
JAMES ADAMS s/o JOHN C./SUZANNAH BACK/ADAMS b. 1841 /b. 1845 s/o MOSES/SARAH/SALLY CAUDILL/ b. 1808/b. 1810 s/o STEPHEN/ELLENDER BUNTON/ADAMS b. 1779 NC/b. NC s/o JESSE/JANE ADAMS b. 1735/b.1742 s/o WILLIAM SR. YADKIN RIVER BASIN N.C.
Anna Adams is also of this line, James and she were cousins. Anna's parents were:
GIDEON/SARAH BLAIR/ADAMS ch; ANNA John, Steven, Frazier, Hiram, Daniel,
Usla - never married Celia/Preston Blair Rebecca/Basil Caudill/David Caudill Nancy/Curtis Stamper Fanny(Frances)/William Adams
My purpose is to find a book for my mother in law. The name is:
"A MAN FROM JEREMIAH" BY FRAZIER ADAMS.
Frazier Adams was a professor at Lees College in Jackson Kentucky. The last publishing date for the book is 1980 as far as I know. This book was ordered from Martings in Portsmouth about 15 years ago and has since been lost.
Would love to hear from anyone interested in this family or with any info on this book.
James Adams, my husbands grandfather was a Baptist preacher, local photographer, furniture maker(caning)and they also sold maple sugar. This month's KENTUCKY EXPLORER contains an article written by my mother in law 20 years ago about her memories of making "Tree Sugar". Her name is Betty Jane Adams/Reynolds. She was born and raised in the Whitesburg area of Letcher County Kentucky. Her only living sibling is Tish Campbell of Indiana.
