I have pretty good information on my Adams side of the family but it gets "lost" datewise before about 1781 and namewise a little earlier than that.
This is what I know.My family lived in Washington, D.C. for 6 Generations (Adams)
I am not really sure of the best format for this so I'll try to make it clear.I am going from what I know to what I don't..........
First me:Kirk Kingb 1/9/70 son of Robert Holtzman King b 1/7/27
son of Maj. J. Craig King, 4/19/1887 - 2/27/1978 married Marie Bliss Adams5/11/1892 - 2/14/1965
Dau of Byron Sunderland Adams 11/27/1855 -2/21/1939 married Estelle P. Adams8/29/1855 - 10/13/1930
son of John George Adams12/13/1816 - 7/31/1879 married Elvira Frances Bradley(of Essex Co, MA) 6/2/1823 - ?
son of George Adams?/1781 - 2/20/1844 married Jamima Collard12/23/1798 - 3/15/1852
Here is where the dates get lost
son of Samuel Adams and Sallie Nelson Adams (other children--Thomas, Anna, Sallie-by second marriage)
Samuel is son of George Adams who married Gillam Martin, Samuel's other siblings--Martin, Frank, Grace, Selia
Well, that is where I am at any help with dates and further tracings back would be great, or pointers on where to go.I have copies of pages of a book "Record of Family of Andrew Broadus Adams" by Annie P. (Adams) Bell 1893 which provides most data and she believed that our Adams were from Henry of Braintree, just how I do not know.As a sidenote, our family cemeteries are:
Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, VA Lot 8258, Section 7 - KING J. Craig King, Marie Adams King, Marie Elizabeth King, and one vacant plot remain.
Congressional Cemetery, Wash, D.C. Range 53-217 - HOLTZMAN Byron S. Adams, Estelle P Adams, and I am assuming other Holtzmans such as Estelle's parents
Glenwood Cemetery, Wash, D.C. Lot B-118 ANCESTRAL ADAMS
Does any of this ring a bell with anyone?I hope so.I do know that Grandmother was DAR in D.C., unfortunately, I now live on the West Coast and it makes it tough to track these things down.
I fortunately have a very complete and researched two volume treatise on the King (de Coninck) family extending to 1680 in America and about 1300 in Flanders which is what really motivated me to learn about my Adams side.
