Hello.Yes I am a cousin from the Adams family tree.My research suggests that there were three Adam's brothers that came to the USA at about the same time.One went to Mass. One to Pennsylvania and one to Virginia.The Mass family is the ancestors of the Presidents and the Pennsylvania is the Ancestor of ours in Kentucky.The Virginia Adam's line also ended up in Southern/Eastern Kentucky with some ending up in Pendleton County which is the line that does not appear to be related to us.
I have not CONNECTED our relation to the one going to Pennsylvania but with time I will.As more information is available on the net then the link to the Pennsylvania branch will be easier to trace.
Our family does trace back to a William Adams He had the following children: William, Stephen, Isaac, Samuel, John, and James
My line is from James who married Agnes Wilson and had the following children: John Charles, Thomas, Rogert G, James, Matthew, and Jesse,
John Charles Adams married Elizabeth Peek and with his family came to Kentucky.It is told that there was once a cabin in DeVou Park in Covington, Ky.It was near the out door stage.Years of weather finally destroyed it and the remains were later moved.I wish I had known about this and gotten some pictures of it.
John Charles and Elizabeth Peek had the following children: Thomas Jefferson, Matthew, Letty, Robert Gillespie, Alanson, John C, Benjamin, Isaac and Elizabeth
Thomas Jefferson Adams married Letta Peek and had the following children: Elizabeth, Presley Peek, Polly, Artemicia, John Presley Hampton, Eleanor M, Thomas Davis "Dee", Letta, and Robert Barnes Adams.THis family moved to Grant County, Ky.
