Two of us Adams people have spent last 3 days on another Anderson Adams. He also served in Union side. Your name sounds like our line from Pittsylvania, Va. The Adams family and the Pigg families were large land holders and Pigg family also built mills in Virginia. After the Revolutionary War, many of them took advantage of the free land deals in Kentucky. Anderson Pigg was the father of Rosie Pigg who married Robert Adams in Kentucky in 1814.They named their son Anderson (after her father) Adams.I don't know your particular guy but that's a place to start.
