Your Hiram may be a brother of my ancestor Abigail Adams.I recieved information from a post on the Schoonover message board #401 that Margaret Schoonover b 1795 NY and George Adams were parents of the following:
Mary b. 1818 m Collison ABIGAIL b 1820 m Stockham Catherine b 1826 Nancy b 1830 m. Adam Butcher HIRAM b 1832 William b 1836
Margaret and George lived in Ohio, Scioto or Pike county.
I have information on Abigails descent and know that her parents are correct.I think its reasonable to think this may be your Hiram since his sister married a Butcher.Any info you have please send along.CLEKHD@aol.com
