I, too am descended from Rev. Alexander ADAMS - through his first wife Esther ARMITAGE. I have not seen him referred to as "Jr." before - best data I have found is that his parents are believed to have been Robert ADAMS b. 1753 in Boston, MA; and Heziah BLAIR b. 1758. I've seen no proof of this. The story is that the father Robert made his way through PA - living in Huntingdon Co. PA for a while, and finally going to Westmoreland Co. where he (Robert) d. 1810. I am very interested in finding confirmation of the above. It's not clear to me if this man was actually an ordained minister. Family tradition places him as a lay minister in the Methodist church. I show that Rev. Alexander ADAMS was b. abt. 1786 in Bedford or Huntingdon Cos. PA - again I've not found proof. According to a published biography by Wiley (which apparently contains some errors) Alexander d. Sep. 1859 in Butler Co., PA. I would be interested in information about children of his second marriage to Sarah FISH.
