I have traced my family back to William Adams who was born in Edgefield, SC, married Joannah and had the following kids: William Adams Jr b. 8/15/1791, married Permelia Smith; John b. 4/8/1813, married Harriet Smith (talk about a close family --did they marry sisters?); Elizabeth, married JOhn Obier; Nancy married Henry Flowers, Joannah (or Hannah) married Christopher Garlington on 3/25/1813 in Amite Co. MS; Sarah, married Jack Cardstarphen on 7/17/1828 in Amite Co. MS; Rebecca married a Mr. Flowers; Mary (no info) and Susanna married Jack Alford (or Halford).
My line is the William Jr, one.
With this many kids and the timing so close, there has to be a connection!My e mail is email@example.com.
