I am seeking data on the following ADAMS family that lived in Livingston Co, IL.They were on the 1880 census in Pontiac, IL. Joseph F. Adams m. Nancy Garner on 23 Dec 1860 there. This is what is shown on the 1880 census for their family: Joseph age 44 b MDNancyage 36 b IN Children b IL: Frank 18,Mary L. 16,Grant 12, Sadie 10, William 8,Joseph6,Eliza4,and Nancy 2. Also living with them was Walter Garner age 21 b IL.
Joseph and son Frank worked in a brick yard; Walter Garner was working in Tile mfg. I believe that the Grant Adams shown as a son is the same one that I am researching.He came to CA and was a stone mason.He worked at the Gladden McBean plant where they produced tile, etc.
Joseph Adams apparently died as I found Mrs. Nancy Garner Adams m. P. H. Cain on 13 Oct 1893 in Livingston Co IL.
