I am looking for information on two Moses Adams. Both were born ca 1833 in KY. Moses Adams #1 from Taney Co., MO married Elizabeth Brown in Webster Co., MO on 16 Sept 1855 (book 1 pg 51 Webster County, Missouri marriage records). They were living in Pierce Twsp., Stone Co., MO on the 1860 census. Elizabeth was born ca 1835 in VA. Children were: Maria, born 1851 KY, Jesse A. born 1853 MO, Margaret born 1855 MO, George W. born 1856 MO, and Sarah J. born 1859 MO. There is a Christian Co., MO death certificate for George W. The Marriage date and age of children indicate this was a second marriage for Moses.
On the 1870 Christian Co., MO census Elizabeth was head of household with children: George W. and Sarah J. On the 1880 Buchanan Twsp, Douglas Co., MO census Elizabeth was listed as a widow with children George W. and Sarah J. Moses Adams #2 born ca 1833 KY wife Mary "Polly" Clay was living in Letcher Co., KY on the 1860 census with children Ailsa, Jesse and John. Information on the net lists Moses married to both Mary "Polly" Clay and and Elizabeth Brown. This is not possible because one lived in Stone Co., MO and one lived in Letcher Co, KY on the 1860 census. One Moses is the Son of Jesse "Boss" and Margaret Maggard Adams. Which one is it and who are the parents of the other Moses? Huba Hodges Price
