I am searching for information on the family of Jacob Calvin Adams.
It is incredibly frustrating as the 1910, 1920 and 1930 censuses all give a different age and place of birth for him (1872, 4 or 5, Arkansas, Missouri or just United States), and his parents birth locations in the censuses either give United States or Unknown.
I know that he married Dollie/y Clare Faulkner/Falkner in 1903 in Neosho, Missouri and had 10 children.
I have searched the IGI for any likely Jacob Adams' and have come up with nothing. Likewise for the 1900 census and the earlier ones.
There is a family 'legend' that the family carried Native American blood (although the 3 censuses I have found the family in all list their race as White), could this affect the younger Jacob's enumeration? I have researched the Faulkner family and they seem to be white, so I am *assuming* that it comes from the Adams line (if, indeed, the legend holds any credence whatsoever which could be doubtful).
