Most of my info. has come fromcensus data and other researchers, and my own research.
I've just begun searching on the McClaren line, trying to find out more about my Adams' line.I don't know much about the Adams, I haven't been able tofind them in SC as yet....found a Martin Adams married to Elizabeth Blassingame, but don't know if they are the same people as our Adams, maybe just coincidental.
