Joseph W. Adams, born KY ca 1830-32, married Lucinda Paris, daughter of John and Mary Paris, in 1851 in Jackson Co., IN.They are found in the 1850 & 1860 Jackson Co. census, Hamilton and Owen Twps.One of their sons, James Henry, was born in 1868 in Knox Co., IN, but I haven't yet found the family in any 1870 census.In 1880 they were in Denison Twp., Lawrence Co., IL.Known children of Joseph and Lucinda were:Absalom B., b. 1852 in IN; Mary Jane, b. ca 1855 IN; William, b. ca 1858 IN; James Henry, b. ca 1868, Knox Co., IN; Emma, b. ca 1879 IL.
Absalom B. moved to Clay Co., AR, where he died in 1927.James Henry lived in Clay Co., AR, and Missouri, where he died in St. Louis in 1932.
Any information about the parents of Joseph W. Adams or about where the rest of the family went from Lawrence Co., IL, would be greatly appreciated.(I believe a brother of Joseph, also named Absalom, moved to Ohio, possibly Van Wert County.I don't know if he went there from Kentucky or from Indiana or elsewhere.)Census records indicate that Joseph's father was born in VA, his mother in TN.I haven't yet located the family in Kentucky and would appreciate any help.Thanks!
