I know this original posting is several years old but I'll try this anyway.
I've been researching several Caudill + Adams marriages which occurred in the late 1700's and if I'm right about a couple of key relationships, of the five children born to John Hobbs Adams, Sr. + Ann?, three married Caudill's and all five are related to the Caudill's through other marriages.
Here goes: Children of John Hobbs, Sr. and Ann?: 1. John Hobbs Adams, Jr. m. Nancy Ann Caudill (Benjamin, Stephen) 2. Benjamin Adams m. Henrietta Caudill (Benjamin, Stephen) 3. Frances "Frankie" Adams m. Stephen Caudill (Benjamin, Stephen) 4. Jacob Adams m. Mary Polly Stamper and their son Abraham m. Nancy Caudill d/o Stephen Caudill (James Sr., Stephen) + Sarah Adams. 5. Spencer Adams m. Mary Towson and their dau. Jane Adams m. Abner Caudill (James Sr., Stephen). So far so good? James Caudill, Jr. (James Sr., Stephen) m. Mary Adams. Stephen Caudill (James Sr., Stephen) m. Sarah Adams.
My information shows that Mary and Sarah were sisters and children of Benjamin Adams + Henrietta Caudill.Something must be wrong with this last bit because the dates are too close together for Henrietta to be mother of Mary and Sarah.
Just draw a huge circle and you'll have a good start at figuring this out.
Any corrections or clarifications are invited and requested.
