This is not my direct line, but I am trying to sort out the Russell and Barbour Co. Adams.
In the 1850 census in Division 25, Barbour Co. AL Thompson T Adams42GA Mary36GA Sarah13GA John11AL Thomas9AL William7AL Mary5AL Susan2AL
In the 1860 censusin Beat 5, Barbour Co.,AL Thompson T Adams48GA Frances42GA Thomas D21GA William S19GA James M18GA Ann E16GA Alex A11AL John H10AL Martha F8AL Thompson F7AL Robert S3AL Samuel76VA Martha62KY
I know who the 1860 family is.I know that Samuel and Martha came from Elbert Co GA with some of thier children to Russell Co, AL.I am pretty sure that Thompson Adams married Frances Witherspoon in 1829.
What I am trying to figure out is who are the people in the 1850 census.Is it the same family? Are Mary and Frances one is the same or did Thompson T remarry?I don't see how that is possible since he supposedly married Frances in 1829 and he would have been the first wife.
The sons William and Thomas could be the same in each census family although they each aged 12 years while the father only aged 6 years and the mother changed names.I know that census ages are all over the place, so I don't put much stock in them.
It is the next couple of children that confuse me. Did Mary, age 5 become James M, age 18? Are Susuan and Anne E the same person?
