Many people seem to be going after this issue. There are 47 references to George Adams of Waterton or Watertown on this site alone. I am going to post the below in all of those.
The key issue seems to be if the West Indies Streetholdt connection assumed by Andrew Adams? is correct or not. I think that all people with any interest in this subject should coordinate their efforts to see if anyone has proved this or not. Where there is smoke, there is fire, etc..
I am also of this line. GeorgeGeorge Jr. Lt.John, John Jr., Rev. Solomon, Dr. Horatio etc... and thus have a great deal of interest.
The Loudon.GED on Ancestry.com gives an excellent genealogy of this line.Pamela Joan Donohue has a site dedicated to George Adams as well.
I have found very similar references to this. I have also found that Henry Adams of Waterton is very well documented. (I just found most of the documentation in the last couple of days as the family had been stuck on Solomon for seemingly forever, like 50 years.)
Here are some of the references I will be going after...
I will also be going to the New York Public Library in the near future.

History of Westminster, Massachusetts - 1728-1893 by William Sweetzer Heywood (Lowell, Mass.: 1893) This goes
Another branch of the Adams family in W. is derived from George Adams1, an immigrant settler of Watertown in 1645. He is sup. by a writer in the Genealogical Register to have been a nephew of Henry1 of Braintree, but without satisfactory attestation. Ab. 1664, he, with w. Frances and 5 chn., rem. to Camb. Farms (Lexington),
Anybody know what genealogical register he is talking about? That seems a little early for Andrew to me.
I called the Ct. Library and it seems that one Lou Adams has also written a book on this as of 1998. Another book by a different Adams from the 1600s also seems to be on File there. I assume that this is from George Juniors Brother who moved to Ct. and whos family seems to have numerous John Addams in it but could be wildly off. Unfortunately they cannnot copy things and are sending me record numbers.
If anyone has data or leads apart from the above, I would be most grateful if you can help me out as I am a complete amateur at this.
