Hi George, My Grandfather was Hyram Allen Adams.His grandfather was Hiram Gaines Adams.Hiram Gaines Adams also had a first cousin named Hiram Gaines Adams.When the Adams came to GA from VA in the late 1700's there was also a family of Gaines who came with them.Hiram Gaines married an Adams.I think that is how the name got into my line.I have seen other Hiram Adams who do not seem to be from that line but I do not know for sure.
Some of the Adams from Elbert Co., GA went to Mississippi. They probably took that name with them.
You are correct, there are not too many Hirams around. Al Adams
