I have a will dated 28 May 1850, probated 21 January 1852,
the deceased being James Adams of Edgefield County, SC
The will lists distributors of the estate as follows:
James brother Charles: his children William, Wiley, Frances, Nancy, Elizabeth, Mary Ann, & Sarah
James brother Henry
James brother Amos:his children James
James brother John:his children James C., John, & Asa
James brother William:his children James, Charles, Aaron, Daniel, William, Levi, Patsy, Elizabeth, Milly & Polly
Also listed are:Elizabeth wife of John Quattlebaum
This Elizabeth probably being James's daughter
I believe this to be the same James Adams you referred to as William James Adams
My James with brothers: Charles, Henry, Amos, William & John
died at age 83 making his birth date 1769-1770
The parents of these six brothers would have probably been born about 1740
James's will dated May 1850 can be found in box 61 Pack 2507 of Edgefield Co Estates at the SC Dept of Archives in Columbia, SC
I am in search of the parents of these six brothers:Charles, Henry, William, Amos, James & John perhaps the man you call William James Adams born about 1748 could be their father.
What source did you find that referred to a William "James" Adams?Any help you could give me would greatly appreciated.
Descendant of the Charles Adams Line.
