My Susannah Adams was born 1856 IL, probably White Co. I have no idea who her Adams grandparents were, only her father, John Adams born 1802 VA, mother Ailsey (?), born 1813 GA. My info is stopped up against John,and Ailsey.John's family were supposed to be in either N or SC from VA, John went out trading and was evidently gone for a while, because when he went back home the family had moved on, and no-one knew where they went. So he went back toward KY, and married, first child , Anderson was born TN 1832, Anderson is my direct ancestor.I believe that I have my work cut out for me, this family will be hard to trace, and has been! I can only hope that someone, some day will contact me because their Adams' seem to match this story.Might show up in a will or estate settlement, if I'm lucky, mentioning the lost son, John. Thanks for reading my query, and good luck to you.
