I was attracted to the message (in the Archives of this list)by Bella Hughes and subsequently yours. The family she had written about, in Dec. of 1998, is my family also. It sounds like your family and Bella's are the same too, even though the wives overlap. If you are still researching this family please contact me. I have found another person from this family who gave me more information than I had before. We are connected to William Henry ADAM'S brothers, Lucas Alvin ADAMS and James Monroe ADAMS.
