The Joseph Adams I was speaking of who was my father's uncle was born in January of 1895.He was my great-grandmother's brother.Her name was Eva Adams.
Her father was George Washington Adams born in November of 1851 in Texas.His mother and father were born in Louisiana, but I'm not certain who they were.They may have been John and Henrietta Adams, since I found them in Texas with children who were born in Louisiana and Texas.But, I'm not certain.
George Washington Adams was said to have been a red-headed Irishman by tradition.His wife was Elizabeth Drucilla Chapman, but I believe he married another woman later, possibly divorcing Elizabeth.
George Washington Adams and Elizabeth Drucilla Adams' children were Selina born March 21, 1877 in Louisiana, Eva born january 29, 1879 in LA, Joseph S born January 1895 in LA, Washington LaFate born January 1, 1890 in LA, and Lulu born in 1889 in LA.
I found the family in 1880 in Tangipahoa Parish, LA, 1900 in Tangiopahoa Parish, 1910 in St. Tammany Parish, and 1920 in St. Tammany Parish.
Since I'm not positive who George Washington Adams parents are, it's been hard to search back any further.
The family tradition is that the family arrive in Galveston during a hurricane.
I found a George W Adams and a sister, Cynthia, living with some Jones'in Washington Parish, but it's hard to say if this was actually the same person I am looking for.
