Hi Brian,I'm glad I could help.There isn't any magic way to find out the information, it is a matter of hunting and pecking and adding to the information you alread have.Here is some more information that I think should be linked to your family.I could not find Mary Adams and her family prior to the 1880 census.

Cobb Date: April 10, 2001 at 11:28:05 In Reply to: Re: Thomas Jefferson Adams by Larry Adamsof 21612 Let me add yet another Thomas Jefferson Adams to the growing list. He's called T.J. by friends and family. I'm not positive where he and his wife (Maggie Graham) were born but their first child Robert Graham Adams was born at or near Grand Junction, TN on December 25,1888. Other children include Hugh, Corbet, Katie and Beatrice (my great grandmother). The family moved to NE Arkansas, Lester Community, Craighead County in the early 1900's and stayed. T.J. is buried in the Pine Log Cemetery. My Email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd love to hear from anyone that may have a connection with this Thomas Jefferson Adams.
