Thanks for the information pertaining to the Scarbroughs of Barbour County, Alabama. So far, I have found no documented connection between the Adams and Scarbrough families. However, I will now be on the look-out as your research shows there was in fact a close relationship by circumstance if not by birth or marriage.
You identified your gg grandfather as "Aven Scarbrough Jr". Is this perhaps the same person identified byhttp://www.findagrave.com/http://www.findagrave.com/ as "Pvt Alvin Adams"? The dates for his birth and death are shown as "unknown". Reference is made to Find-a-Grave Memorial #10060971. Please feel free to use my e-mail address if you have any questions.
