I am looking for any Adams that came from GEORGEHAM, Devon England or surrounding Parrishes during the late 1700's to 1850. I am trying to find the parents of my William Gaskins Adams. He was born bet. 1790 and 1810 in Geogeham Parish, Devon, England and died May 31, 1883 in SULLIVAN county, INDIANA. He is found in the 1841 Census of Georgeham DARRACOTT. He moved to CLARK County Illinois in 1847 and lived there for about 6 or 7 years before moving to Sullivan county, Indiana. He married MARY ANN TUCKER. She was born Abt. 1801 in England, and died November 19, 1869. They are both burried in Union Chapel-Crow-White Cemetary, Turman Township, Sullivan County, Indiana.

I am also looking for any information on Francis and Phillip Adams of Georgeham, Devon, England. This family could be related to my Adams family. I have the following info found at LDS site:
Francis Adams m. Catherine HOWARD 11 Feb 1740 in Georgeham, DEVON, England.
Francis Addams m. Jane BADGER 24 Jan 1718 in Georgeham, Devon, England
It lists a Francis Adams c. 12 Dec 1691, son of PHILIP and Gertrude Adams.
It also lists a Philip Adams c. 14 sep 1653 in Georgeham, Devon, England. (father John Adams)
Possible children of PHILIP and Gertrude are:
1) Thomas c. 7 April 1681 in Ilfracombe, Devon
1) Philip c. 29 July 1684 in Ilfracombe, Deven
2) John c. 18 apr 1687 in Ilfracombe, Devon
