Hi Doug, I am a decendant of John Hobbs Sr. b 1727 VA. d 1804 Wilkes Co. NC. He and his family moved to NC in about 1777. Several Adams Families lived in Wilkes Co. They were large l0 to l7 Children, and every family used the same names for their kids. My line goes from John Sr. to John Hobbs Adams Jr b 1747 VA, to Randolf Adams b 1803 Wilkes Co.NC, to Stephen Adams b 1832 KY,to Jessie Adams b 1861, KY, to Woodrow Adams b 1879 to Lola Adams Seymour (My Mother)
I have been gathering information posted on the web and find it very confusing because many researcher do lots of guessing about who are the parents of the children.
I did find a entry that Stephen Adams b 1778 married Mary (Molly} Adams, daughter of Zelphia Adams Aug. 11, 1811.
This leaves a lot room for speculation.Most of the Adams Families in this area and time frame seemed to have been related. Many were married more than once. Also intermarried with cousins.
Good Luck with your research. If you get it figured out I would like to know.I am still hung up on the parents of John Hobbs Adams Senior.
