As far as we know John and Ailsey Adams were NOT related to the other Adams families in Saline, and White Co IL. John Adams b 1802 VA md. Ailsey, was out trading as a young man, and when he returned home (where ?)they had moved, and were never found again. This is from old family lore. Our Adams' moved to Jackson Co, IL except for Stephen who evidently died in Gallatin Co IL ca 1886-9.There was a son John Q., we do not know what happen to him, as well as several daughters. Another son Alexander was last seen in Russellville Alabama during the CW ca 1862-Sept.I wish I could tell you more, sorry.
