Would like to share Adams family history and genealogy to find out if you could be a distant cousin?
I have a Byrd Adams as being the son of Elkannah Adams and Mary Ann Pigg-Adams. Elkannah and Mary Adams moved from Pittsylvania, VA to Madison County and Clark County, Ky. They had a son named Byrd Adams who married Nancy A. Williams. Although I do not know the birth date of Byrd Adams, one of his brothers was born in 1775 and the other 1794. The other children are: John,Berryman, Lucy, Mary A., Minter, Sally, Aggy, Nancy.
Elkannah died in 1805/1806 not long after moving to Kentucky. Your Byrd Adams b. in 1811 would NOT be the son of Elkannah; however back then they named their children from family names and that could tie your Byrd to this family.
