In 1850 and 1860 Richard B. Adams and his family is living in Jefferson County, Alabama.Richard married Nancy Russell April 22, 1841 in Jefferson County, Alabama. I have been unable to find this family in 1870, but they are in Itawamba County, MS in 1880.Nancy Russell Adams died about 1855 when Richard married his second wife Susan Cornelius. Richard and Nancy had 5 children: 1.Minerva who married Marquis Lafayette Parham in 1860 in Jefferson County, Alabama. 2.Martha born about 1845 3.Elizabeth born about 1847 4.Josephine born about 1850 5.Mahala born 1854, married Alonzo P. Suggs in 1875 in Mississippi.Mahala had 3 children, Albert S., William w. and Josephine.Mahala and her children came to Clark County, Arkansas where Mahala married William H. Phillips in 1895.Mahala moved to Garvin County, Oklahoma where she died in 1937.
I am searching for parents of Richard B. Adams and Nancy Russell. Any help will be appreciated.Wanda Karnes
