Firstly, would you please use this board or I have to keep opening files for people and my husband complains about all the space I use. Hope you don't mind. It also keeps all the info in one place and gives other people a chance to connect. Your board postings always come up on my emails.
Firstly I am going to copy the last info you gave me by email so it's here.
1818 Erastus born in Conn.(CT)Erastus Adams born in c1816 to 1818 in Ct 1844 Married Celestia, (Selistia) Randall in New York He later moved to Minnesota were I believe he died in about 1893.
1. 1845 Birth Benjamin in Conn.(CT) 2. 1847 Birth George in Conn.(CT) 1850 Census - Crawford County, Troy Township Pennsylvania
3. 1852 Birth David in Pennsylvania 1860 Census - Fillmore County, Newburg Township Minnesota
4. 1861 Birth William Adams in Minnesota 5. 1863 Birth Mary Adams in Minnesota 1870 Census - Martin County, Fairmont Township Minnesota
1880 Census - Martin County, Manyaska Township Minnesota
I was hoping if I put things in enough different ways I would find something else. I did.
Husband William Adams Birth:25 MAR 1862Sherburn, Martin, Minnesota Marriage:21 MAR 1891
Father:Erastus Adams Mother:Celestial Randell
Wife Sadie Beebe Birth:26 NOV 1873 Marriage:21 MAR 1891 Death:12 OCT 1936
Now if you are really stuck you could get William's birth cert and that would give you proof of Erastus' marriage and where he was born.
It would also give you any children's names and ages prior to William's birth. He would be just about the last you would think.
You also say, I do believe his father's name could be William and mother's name could possible be Rhoda based on how near Erastus Adams family lived to William's family in the 1850 U S Census > Pennsylvania > Crawford > Troy.
How near were they and who was in that household? Could I have their details? Are you accessing these census'? Are they on the internet?
