My 7th great grandaunt was Margaret Adams B. 8 may, 1654 in Plymouth, Mass. She M. John Pease 30 jan, 1677 in salem. I have had inconclusive results, in two systematic searches of Margaret's ancestry, in an attempt to determine if there is any interconnection with the President's family. While I have ample reason to doubt any such connection exists, I thought I would "send up a flare" on the board and see if anyone has a somewhat complete history of the Adams surname in Massachusetts from after 1620. I've gone four generations back past Margaret and couldn't identify a common ancestor with the braintree Adams clan.
