There are some errors in this and the replies. 1) Daniel Adams Jr. married Mary Whiting and had several children including a daughter born 1785 when Daniel W. Adams was born. 2) There is no record of a marriage between Daniel and Lucinda Watkins, and in fact there is no information that Lucinda ever existed. There is another Daniel Adams, known in the Henry Adams Genealogy as Deacon Daniel born 1750 who married Martha Watkins. This couple is a better choice for parents of Daniel W. Adams.
