Is there information about this Adams family who lived at Grafton, Massachusetts?
One of my many great + grandmothers is Thankful Adams who married Captain Oldham Gates in 1759 at Brookfield, Mass.Their daughter Thankful Gates married Paul Crocker, Jr. and lived at Aylesford, Nova Scotia.
I think that I've found the parents of my Thankful Adams, because, earlier, all I could about Thankful was that her father's name was Jonathan and that she had been christened at Grafton, Mass.
In the Vital Records of Grafton, MA, I found the following information:
5 children of Jonathan and Mary ____ Adams were christened - or baptised - on June 30, 1734. Edith Adams Mary Adams Jonathan Adams (he died Oct. 1, 1745 at Cape Breton) Sarah Adams Thankful Adams (I hope she is the Thankful who married Capt. Oldham Gates)
and 4 other children who were baptised, it appears, soon after they were born. Abigail AdamsApril 27, 1735 Edward Adams Jan. 15, 1737 LydiaDec. 30, 1739 Rachel July 4, 1742
A Jonathan Adams died at Grafton October 16, 1753.Is that the Jonathan who is the father of these children?
