I am the 4th great granddaughter of Henry Adams. Like you I also found a connection with Tom Adams and I also was so excited. My great grandfather Albert Henry Adams is the son of Martha Adams (the 4th child of Hnery and Fannie) It would seem that allof Martha's children were born out of wedlock.
Albert Adams married a Rebecca Stricklandand had 9 children. He was a farmer by trade and most of the children of Martha were not very well educated. Albert was born ib 1880 and died in 1931. I have alot of information on Rebecca Strickland's family but hardly any on MArtha and her parents. Can you share what you have with me. Waiting anxiously!
