Carl, I was looking for James and Frances Adams on Ancestry.com.I found a tree for them that shows James as being the son of Thomas and Mary White Adams, but it shows that Thomas as being the son of James and Cecily Ford Adams.I do not believe that is correct. James and Cecily Ford Adams did have a son Thomas.That Thomas married Sarah (Salley) Ford.They had a son James Burton Adams who was born in 1795, the same year as James Adams who married Frances Herndon.James Burton Adams married Mary (Polly) Haley.Again, I have no documentation to prove any of this.It is very confusing to have both of the James Adams born in 1795 and both supposedly the son of a Thomas Adams. The Thomas Adams who was the father of James Burton Adams came from VA to Elbert Co, GA. I believe that I have seen that the Thomas Adams who was the father of James Adams who married Frances Herndon was from VA.
I hope that this is not totally confusing, but some of the information out there on James and Frances is way wrong. Just need to figure out which is the right stuff. Al
