Looking for the ancestors of Thornton W. ADAMS born late 1700s in VA. Moved to NJ and had a daughter Almira M.ADAMS c1819. Married Catherine HOFSBUCK(sp?) of NJ. Family legend and the Ganong family genealogy (printed in the 1880s) have him down as a "relative" of President John Quincy, but without any further details. Any info GREATLY appreciated. Please email.
