Otto, In my line I have many Adams from in and around New York City: Samuel Gardner Adams b. 1/8/1841 m. 12/25/1861 1)Sophia Matilda Demarest b. 12/25/1841 d. 2/5/1867 m. 2) Virginia Margaret Trested (?)
He was the son of Robert Alexander Adams b 12/27/1817 m. Leonora Reiner
Samuel's son was Percy Demarest Adams b. 11/9/1863.
I'm trying to figure some of the "older" Adams geneaology and it does get confusing...Half brothers and adoptions. I mostly have wills and such from the late 1700's through the mid 1800's.
