Doris, I would love to see the Maude Adams letter but my Maude would have been only about 10 or so at that time. My Adams' are from Choctaw county, Mississippi so they could still be related. Just for the record: My line is D. Adams b abt 1801 m to Elizabeth b 1803. Next is John Henry Adams b 1842 m to Susan R. Their children Maude, Letha Edna,Rubie , Cornelia, W.J., M.E., E.F.,and T. all girls except W.F. Have documentation on John Henry's service in Confederate army. Any Connections, or suspects?
