Actually, Adams is a married name - and I am descended from Mary Ann ADAMS, b. abt. 1806, who md. Anthony KEELER. I count 15 children of Alexander between 2 wives - which makes me think there must be more folks out there descended from this family. I found it interesting that not only did the father, Alexander ADAMS, marry a second wife many years his junior; but his son Matthew S. ADAMS did so as well. He was 40 years older than his second wife, Ella Amanda. Am still very interested in proving (John) Alexander's parentage, and further ancestry.
