Jane, Yes on Alberta Adams marriage to George J Allen ( he is my great-grand uncle). As to the John Q Adams connection.I do not know about that and that is one of my questions.I have done a little looking, not a whole lot, and have not found a connection yet. If you discover one, let me know. Do you have a copy of the Marceline News article? If so, could you send me one.
My email is email@example.com maybe we should talk directly and now thru the forum.your call on that
