There is a Moses Adams listed in the list of "Poor Children Schooled by the County" in Greene County Pennsylvania for the years 1825 and 1826.His calculated year of birth from those records is 1818.
The parent is Mary Adams. Other children of Mary Adams are Isaac with no age shown and John born about 1814. In the 1820 census Mary Adams is listed with 3 male children under the age of 10, 1 age 14 -26 and 1 female age 26-45.Mary could be the widow of Isaac Adams who appears in the 1810 census of Greene County PA.
In 1830 Maryanne Adams is listed as 1 female between the ages of 40 -50, with 3 male children between 14 and 26, 1 female under the age of 10 and 1 female between 10 and 24.
The List of Poor Children does not designate race. In 1810 Isaac Adams family is listed as white. In 1820 Mary Adams is listed as Free Colored. 1830 Maryanne Adams is a white woman with Free Colored children.
The greater Adams family that I am researching from Greene County PA usually passed and lived as white when they left the area so it is not unusual to find them in the census records as white and with a white or caucasion designation on their death certificates.While living in Greene County PA some of them changed race in the census listings from white to mulatto and back to white.
I have been researching this family for 30 years and have yet to find any descendants that were aware of a racially mixed background until they started researching their family history.
If anyone would like to discuss the possibility that Moses from Washington County OH is related to the Greene County PA Adams family my email is email@example.com
