Carl, I also have been trying to find a connection to the Adams with the middle name of Green.My grandfather was Henry Green Adams, born 12 Jan 1856 in Monroe Co. IN.Died 20 June 1937 in Wilmot KS. He married 1st Amanda Collier, 28 Feb 1876 in Monroe Co. IN. & 2nd Ida Tice (my grandmother in Wilmot KS.Henry Green's father was John M./Quency Adams born 03 Apr 1835 in Monroe Co. IN.John M. Quency's 1st wife was Mary Elizabeth Bastin. (Henry Green Adams was their only child, she died shortly after he was born)John M. Quency married 2nd Margaret Clendenen.They had six children.John M./Quency's father was John Adams b 1802 in VA (1870 census Monroe Co. says WVA.)He married Nancy Bell b 1802 KY in 1826 in Monroe Co. IN.I am at a dead end with John Adams 1802, trying to find his parents and siblings.
My grandfather, Henry Green told my mom that he didn't know where his middle name of Green came from.We assumed that he was named for a friend or family member, but I also have noticed how many middle names of Green there are.A family that I am certain that we are related to is Hugh Adams 1775 VA? married Eleanor Ellett and lived in KY to on to Monroe Co. IN and then to Putman Co. IN.We have all the same names, Hugh, Ancil, James William John, and the same migration. Do you have ties to any of my family? Judy
