I am still working on trying to identify the parents of John Hobbs Adams Jr. Have foundentries indcating the his parents were Benjamin and Nancy Agnes. Have located will of Benjamin but it does not list John H. as a son. There are at least two families involved and other Benjamins. The same with Benjamins father Thomas there are three birthdates. There is a will that seems to fit there may be more that one Thomas involved.
Hope this information will be of help for you and I plan to keep checking on Johns parents. If you have any additional information I would like to hear from you.
