The Adams family in this book lived in and around Elbert, Jasper, and Newton counties. The book focuses primarily on William Adams (1831-1895), who was the son of James and Frances Herndon Adams, and his descendants, although information on both James and Frances, as well as their other 14 children, is included. I was fortunate enough to obtain the last available new copy a few months ago after having no luck finding it on the secondary market. I understand that there is a copy of the book in the Georgia Archives. It is a wonderfully written book , especially for those members of this particular Adams family.
