Hi, I am working on the President John Adams line and I was curious about Charles Addams who is famous for the Addams Family Cartoon, TV, Movies. Wikipedia says that he's distantly related to President Adams. So I was doing some research on Charles Samuel Addams ancestry. I found from Rootsweb.com and familysearch.org and take Charles Samuel Addams back to Richard Adams b. 1590. But I can't find anything farther back than that. I can't find the connection to President Adams's line yet. Also I think on one of the rootsweb sites they show an Isaac Addams as the first Adams to add an extra D.It says he did it so he wouldn't be confused with another Isaac Adams in the area.But both rootsweb and familysearch have Isaac's ancestors with the dd spelling. I know that both of those sites are known for having errors on them. What can you tell me about Richard and have you been able to find anything past John Adams you mention as being his father?
