Barb, I don't know that I can help you - but maybe you can help me.Do you by any chance have a John Alvin Adams (born 8/18/1863) in your line or have you come across any info on him? He lived in Lawrence County, Ohio (not sure if he was born in Lawrence Co., I just know he was born in Ohio).I have some info that his parents were Thomas W. and Nancy E. (Lacey) Adams.Siblings were: Luella A., Jesse F., Charles G., Adeline, and Lillie R. Adams. (They are all listed in the 1880 Ohio Census.)
Surely there could not have been that many Adams's not related in Lawrence Co.!
Would greatly appreciate any help. Thank you. Louise
