Hi Vern, I am a decendant of John Hobbs Adams b about 1727. His parents are listed in the Family Group Record as Benjamin Adams b about 1709 ISLE OF wIGHT VA and Nancy Agnes b about 1707 Sussex, VA .Benjamins parents were listed asThomas Adams b 1683 Isle of Wight, VA d About 1722, Sussex Elizabeth Adams b 1687 Isle of Wight. Another birthdate list Thomas being b about 1667. It is possible that there were two Thomas Adams in this family.
I have had difficulty in proving the family connections at this point. There may two Benjamin Adams. One may have hadtwenty children. One left a will when he died 1756. and listed his heirs as Benjamin Jr. Thomas, James, Mary, Agnes, Elizabeth (Ezell), Martha, Ann and Sarah.
The other children listed to Benjamin were John Hobbs Adams, William Adams, Charles, Jacob, Jesse, Daniel, Wynnie, Spencer and Fannie.As you see it appears that there are two families involved here. There also has been information that Benjamin raised the orphaned childrenof his deceased bother Daniel.
I have been working on this family for several years and am still looking for confirming information.I have hundreds of names of decendants up to today.I would appreciate hearing more details on what you have found and maybe we can break down the wall that I have run into.
