My G Grandfather was named Martelles E. Tillison Adams. He married Maggie Smith in Johnson Co. Mo. in 1872. They had 2 children (one my grandfather Ira) They subsequently divorced and I have not been able to trace him. Census from 1880 in Mo. claims Ira's father was born in Mo. Ira, as an adult, did move his family West to Walla Walla Wa. area. Probably just a coincidence, but such an unusual name, I had to follow up.
