While Redman W. Adams (24 Nov 1825 - 8 Nov 1911) is your great-great grandfather, my great-great-grandmother was his older sister Rhoda (Adams) Williams (c1815 - 26 July 1857).She married (bond dated) 12 Oct 1839 in Pittsylvania Co., VA to Matthew B. Williams and had 7 children, with only one of these 7 children having descendants, my great-grandmother Emily Mary Williams (1849-1903) who married an Adams cousin, James Madison Adams (1845-1923).They left Pittsylvania County, VA in the early 1880s and took their family first to Missouri and then in the late 1890s to Adams County, Wash. (named for the Presidential Adamses).
I have 9 children for Redmond Adams (17 Oct 1787 - c1850s) and his wife Mary Grigsby (30 Aug 1789 - c1840s).Here is a summary.As far as I know, these people mostly lived and married in Pittsylvania County, VA, except your Redman W. Adams who might have lived some in neighboring Halifax County, VA (where he married), or at least in the Sutherlin area near the border of Halifax and Pittsylvania Counties.If someone can add further information on the Redmond Adams family, please reply.
