I am researching my family who came from Staffordshire and Shropshire, England. My mothers maiden name is Adams.
I can take the Adams family as far back as the C18th in England but have just found out my GGUncle? wrote a book called 'A History of the Adams family of North Staffordshire' his name was Percy Adams. I remember my Grandfather telling me of this book which his cousin wrote. In it Percy tells of the Adams family who emigrated to America where one of the family, John and John Quincy becoming President. I have no info on this.
Does anyone have any info on who it was who emigrated from England to the US...I believe he was from Devon or Somerset. I would like to...A confirm this story and ..B tie in my family research with whichever Adams it was.
