I just now saw your query dated 1999 concerning Archelaus Adams and tried to send you an e-mail which was unsuccessful, so I am posting it here in the genforum.I have the following information on Auchelaus Adams:
John Adams, born June 14, 1714, died April 15, 1806 in Kingston, Plymouth mass., married Alice Piper in August, 1725 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass.Alice was born approx. 1704 and died before 1740.She was born in Ipswich Mass., and died in Middlesex, Mass.Their children:
1.Jonathan Adams (m. Submit Farwell)--my 6th great grandparents 2.John Adams (b.Oct.29,1726) 3.ARCHELAUS ADAMS (B.Sept.23,1731, died after 1783)
I am not sure who Archelaus married, but I do know I have run into a lot of Auchelauses, and it can be difficult separating them out.
You probably already have this information by now, but in case you don't, I hope it helps.I am having the same problem locating Submit Farwell Adams' parents and family.That's an unusual name also!
