I have been searching for a 4th great grandfather for years now. I keep hitting dead ends. Maybe someone here can help.
Third great grandmother was Mary Adams, b 13 Oct 1807. Daughter of Ezekiel Adams who married Alice Merrill (b 9 Dec 1784; d of Benjamin Merrill and Sarah Eastman) in Amesbury, Massachusetts on 14 March 1807. Ezekiel might have a middle initial of A.
I am told that Ezekiel's father was also an Ezekiel and that his father was Joseph. Joseph is supposedly a cousin to John Adams (2nd US President).
I followed lines both ways and just can't seem to find the match.
Who is this mysterious Ezekiel who got married in Amesbury? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
