Jo Ann Fairbanks Gile, We are looking to connect our familyof Adams to the English clan.According to the history of Franklin, Massachuseets, our John Adsms, the immigrant, settled in Franklin, Mass. He m. Sarah Fairbank of Wrentham, Mass. no dates. Their son Peter m. Esther Ward.Their son, Joel served in the Rev. War and settled in Union, Maine later and m. Jemima Robbins.The immigrant, John had a brother James in England according to a "Whos Who of Mass. Leaders",he wrote his brother from England saying, "We wouldn't know if you were dead or alive if it wasn't for our cousin Samuel in the States".We would like to know which Samuel he referred to and as we understand, James came to the states, m. and settled somewhere but where?Maybe near Boston as he apparently was a merchant and asked that his brother John leave a message for him at his landlady's home to be forwarded on the next voyage of the ship to England.Family lore says this family was related to Henry of the presidential line.Any help with this family would be welcome.
