As a follow up, Fisher Adams had nothing to do with this line. Thomas Adams was descended from several John Adamses in a row, back to a Christopher Adams of Kittery Maine (and possible prior to that from Braintree, Massachusetts). The book: Early Families of Old Kittery, has the entire descent and some interesting history from Christopher Adams down to Thomas Adams who married Elizabeth Dolloff. I have the line from their son Thomas Frederick Adams down to present day in several lines, if anyone would like to connect up. I would be happy to share.
