Thomas Jefferson Adams was the son of Thomas A. Adams and Elizabeth Austin both of Tenn. He was one of eleven children. T.J. fought in sixteen well known Civil War battles before being wounded at Sharpsburg 6-17-1862. He was sent home after that. The 1870 census shows him living in Colorado County TX. at thirty years of age. Also living at that addresswas a 40 year old black lady, a 33 year old black man and 5 black males who had taken his name. Former slaves. He was the brother of my ggrandfather Edwin Thompson Adams. I have a well documented history of his family however we don't know what happened to him after this time period. My source and I are very interested in all information you have on him. We well share more in return.
