Was your Grandfather's name Joe? I think I remember my Mother going down for a funeral, think it was in 2000, for a Joe...Here is the way my family tree is, at least as far as I got:
My Mother Connie Adams was the daughter of William Jackson Adams..His siblings were: brothers and sisters- Elsie(12/29/1910-3/9/1913),Carl (12/4/1912-?),Edith(7/16/1915-3/2/1924).Haynes(6/6/1918-2/28/1920),Mildred Janelle,(4/26/1922-),Helah Sherman (9/12/1924-)...
Their parents: William Harden Adams(1888-1963)married Jettie Bly Anderson(1891-1968)
William Harden's parents: Jesse Franklin Adams (1/12/1843-11/8/1927)married Sarah Ellen Vaught(7/25/1863-4/28/1931)
Jesse's parents: Henry Adams (1820-1889) Wilkes Co, NC Married Susanna Fuget (1827-1905)..
And that's where I get stuck. I haven't been able to find Henry's parent's anywhere..Just Susannah Fuget's.
Susannah was born of William Fuget and Winney Ivey, 1802.
That's where I had heard that the Cherokee came in...Hopefully not, because that would mean I am 1/128th, and I thought(and look it) I was more than that...
