Hi! I'm assisting a Mr. James T. Adams II of Caddo Parish, LA with his family history. He is descended from Isaac Adams (b MS 1815-1820/d 1888 MS) whose son was Robert Roy Adams. s/o James Taylor Adams (I) s/o Isaac Newton Adams who was a brother or son of Isaac Roy Adams. s/o Isaac(R.?) Adams whose wife was Emma J. Meyers or Masters?
I found land deeds in Jefferson Co. MS for Isaac Adams dated 1820, 1827; some descendants later moved from MS to Catahoula Parish, Louisiana where a portion of Catahoula Parish was reorganized as LaSalle Parish, LA in 1910.Yesterday I went to my local library and found Catahoula and LaSalle Parish burials for several above named Adams family members.
I thought the Catahoula Parish Adams were related or allied to a Samuel Adams SC line who died 1801 in St. Tammany Parish, LA who descends from the well known President Adams Family of Massachusetts, but I'm still looking for link and more leads. I'm descended from Lydia Adams, d/o Moses Adams, s/o Peter Adams
An 1878 Catahoula Parish LA Voter Registration list of Catahoula Parish history had several birth years for Adams descendants named: Adams, Dempsey Isaac, b LA 1856 Adams, Elias, b VA 1829 Adams, ISAAC ROY, b LA 1840 Adams, James, b MISS, 1827 Adams, James D. b LA 1843 Adams, John Quincey b LA 1840 Adams, Levi, b LA 1854 Adams, Lewis Absolom b LA 1854 Adams, Thomas Jefferson b ALA 1845 Adams, Thomas Marion b LA 1852 Adams, William Jackson b LA 1852 Adams, Wilson b LA 1858
The BLM website (glorecords.blm.gov) has great deeds (4)for Isaac Adams in MS and later Catahoula Parish, LA.Later Adams family members were found in LaSalle Parish was formerly a part of Catahoula Parish. I was able to find a Jefferson Co. MS Deed dated 1820 and his name on the 1820 MS Federal Census for Jefferson County. If you have new leads or other allied given family names of this Adams line, please contact me.
