My 3rd great-grandfather was John Addis, born about 1788, unknown where...he lived and died in Ulster Count, NY.
Family lore said that he was from Ireland, but I don't find a lot of Addis' in Ireland.I have found some info on line that suggests the name was originally "Adas" from Stafforshire, England.
If anyone has any info, please contact me, thanks.
