HI Guys! I am working on my collateral families and have just the one Adams surname in my data listed below. I would so appreciate any help in finding this woman's data. She is in the right place at the right time to be of Melungeon heritage but I am not sure whether or not she is. But some Adams families in NC/VA/KY/TN/WV do have Melungeon (muh-LUNGE-uhn)ancestry.
Here is all the data that I now have on this line:
Descendants of Virgie Adams
1 Virgie Adams . +John Cannon Helvey b: October 02, 1867 in Zebulon, Pike Co., KY d: July 30, 1955 Father: William Madison Helvey Mother: Martha Jane Sparks
Some health issues may be involved with Melungeon ancestry. For more information on this you can take a look at my HEALTH url noted below:
There are some physical characteristics among some Melungeon descendants as well as common surnames. Adams is among those common names. Please see my site noted below for these characteristics and the other surnames: Melungeon Information and Common Surname List: Diagrams of physical characteristics http://melungeonhealth.org/info.htmlhttp://melungeonhealth.org/info.html Common surnames http://mywebpages.comcast.net/sparkys9/melungeons.htmlhttp://mywebpages.comcast.net/sparkys9/melungeons.html
My Sparks Genealogy which connects to this Adams/Helvey line is located at the following url where I also have more information on the Melungeons: Sparks Genealogy: http://SparksGenealogy.nethttp://SparksGenealogy.net (Select: Index/Nancy's Corner/The Melungeon Connection) (Select: Index/The Melungeon Media Release)
And IF you are interested, please join my Melungeon mailing list. Send an e-mail to: Melungeonsfirstname.lastname@example.org
Here are other surnames I am researching: Searching SPARKS, HAGER, JAYNE, RAMEY/REMY, COLLINS, MUSICK, WALKER, PORTER MAYO, CAREY/CARY NAPIER,QUEEN, PERDUE, KELLEY, LETT, BELCHER and many more!
Thanks for any help on finding Virgie Adams and if I can be of help re: the Melungeons, I will be glad to try. NancyS
