I was so excited to see someone researching this line! I too became discouraged trying to find where in Ohio William A. Adams was born. He marr Maria Nailer 14 Aug 1828 in Greene Co., Ill. When/where did he die? I dont find him anywhere after the 1850 census, but William (Jr) was born 1851, so I assume William A. was still alive then--? Maria Nailer b. 26 Apr 1807 in Penn. She d. 23 Oct 1880, Kane, Greene Co., Ill.

There was a William Adams and wife Delcy iving in Lincoln twp, Harrison, MO in the 1900 census. Living with them are grandchildren William b.1884 in MO and Alma b.1887 in MO. Alma was the name of both my grandmother and great- grandmother, through Joshua Clark Adams. So I thought perhaps this was the correct William, son of Wm. A and Maria N. Adams. Would love to complete the family groups of each of William A and Maria's children, with marriages, where they lived, etc. firstname.lastname@example.org
