Sounds like my step-father's family. John Demeritt and Sarah Adams had 6 children:John Jr, Mary, Eliza Ann, William, Leonard and Joseph. I haven't personally dug into this line yet, but do have a few notes from my Aunt on Sarah Adams, daughter of Thomas Henry Adams and Anne Marie Inman. My late aunt's daughter is compiling some information for me from her mother's papers regarding that side of the family. Let me know if you're interested - I'll check with my cousin and see what progress she's made.
