I have been given some paperwork by my family to trace my lineage back. I am totally fascinated by all the pictures, information, and stories that I have been handed down.
The furthest back anyone has been able to trace my Adams line is to Lee Adams born 1847 in Hawkins County, TN. There is a Leander Adams that we found, but he was listed as being born in North Carolina.
Lee married Mary McMahon(spelled MANY different ways!?) who was also from Hawkins County, TN on June 14,1866.
They had 5 children: 1. John C. Adams b. 1867 in Hawkins Co., TN 2. Mary Sue Adams b. 1969 in Hawkins Co., TN 3. Willian Adams b. 1871 in Hawkins Co., TN 4. Smith Lee Adams b. 1873 in Surgionsvills, Hawkins Co., TN - d. April 1940 in Eaton, Preble Co., OH 5. Martha J Adams b. 1875 Hawkins Co., TN
From a note under their names it says that Martha J was probably buried in Middlesboro, KY along with some of her brothers. That would have to be John and Willian, since we know where Smith was buried.
I have loads of info from here forward, but am just stuck on Lee Adams!
