Greetings.I'm looking for ancestry of William Penn Adams.He was born 24 Jun 1858 in Natchitoches Parish, LA and died 4 Feb 1942.He is buried in Bethany Cumberland Presbytarian Cemetery, Natchitoches Parish, LA.
He married Mary Hamous (born 21 Jan 1865, died 26 Sep 1939) and is buried next to her husband.
I have conflicting information on W. P. Adams' father.According to the 1870 Census, his father was Wm. Adams, age 40, born in Georgia.But then, according to the 1880 Census (that I found on FamilySearch.Org), his father was referred to as Buck Adams, born in Arkansas; and his father was born in Kentucky and his mother in South Carolina.The elder William and/or Buck was married to Martha, born about 1835 and born in Louisiana.She died between the 1870 and 1880 Censuses, since William/Buck was listed as widowed.
Other known siblings of William Penn are:Mincey, born about 1853 in Lousiiana; and Tom, born about 1867.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance.
