I am seeking information on my 3rd Great Grandfather, Dr. Ripley E.W. Adams.He was born 29 Mar 1810 in Anson Maine.His parents were Benjamin and Fannie Gilman Adams. He married Jane (Cheney?) about 1829 and they settled in Joliet, Ill were they had four children: Benjamin F., John Quincy, James B. and Eugenia. It seems he divorced Jane about 1842 and moved to St. Louis, MO.About this time he married Pheobe (maiden name unknown). In the 1850's he and Pheobe adopted a daughter, Mattie Taylor Adams. He taught medicine in Texas, Missouri and Ohio before moving back to Springfield, Ill were he practiced medicine until his death 15 Dec 1869. I know that he had two brothers that lived in Joliet, William and Micajah. The other siblings I believe lived in the Painsville Ohio area. Cathrine, Peter, Harrison, Charles, Eugene and Benjamin.I would very much like to hear from decendants of any of the before mentioned people.
