My husband's aunt many years ago passed along the following information. We have a Joseph Adams (b. 1749 Virginia, d. 1837 Wake Co. NC), married Winifred Rowland. His eldest son James (b. 1805) married Elizabeth Avery (last name perhaps Avera???), daughter of Richard Avery, granddaughter of William Avery. I'm looking for the Joseph'sand Winifred's parents.
