My search has run cold with Stith Adams, my gggggrandfather.The lineage I have so far is:He was b.abt. 1800 (poss. in Meade/Breckinridge Co., KY or in VA) and d. abt. 1831 (prob. Meade Co, KY). He married Amanda F. Rentfro on 12/20/1827 in Meade Co.(Note: I've seen references to him as Seth but his marriage bond shows his first name to be Stith.)Stith and Amanda had one son, John Quincy Adams (b. 3/4/1830 Meade Co, KY;d. 4/5/1902 Mt. Sterling, IL.) Amanda remarried 7/26/1838 to George Greenwell Jr. and they moved to Brown Co., IL.John Quincy Adams m. Margaret Jane Tebo on 8/11/1852 in Mt. Sterling, IL.They had 9 children, one of which is my gggrandfather, James Callihill Adams (b. 8/30/1853 Brown Co., IL;d. 5/11/1927 Denver, CO).James Callhill m. Mariah Alice Summy on 11/4/1875 in IL.One of their daughters was Lillie Elmira Adams (m. David Cyrus Arnold Jr.) and her daughter, Maurine Arnold, was my grandmother.
Any info on Stith Adams parentage, etc, would be appreciated.I suspect his mother's maiden surname was Stith as that surname appears frequently in the Meade/Breckinridge Co., KY, area.Also, I understand a lot of settlers to this area came from VA, especially Bedford.
