HI Jerry and Ruth, I have been working for over a year attempting to establish the parents of John Hobbs Adams b 1727VA. I have found several entriesfrom other researchers that Benjamin and Agnes were his parents but have not found any proof. There is a will posted for Benjamin Adamson June 14, 1756 list his children as Benjamin Adams Jr, Thomas Adams, James Adams, Mary Adams, Agnes Adams, Elizabeth Adams, Martha Adams, Ann Adams, and Sarah Adams.
Entries in the Ancestry.com list nine more children John Hobbs Adams, William Adams. Charles Adams, Jacob Adams Jesse Adams Daniel (Nipper) Adams, Wynnie Adams, Spencer Adams and Fannie Adams. It is possible that there are two familiesor two Benjamins involved.
Several entries indicate that the parents of Benjamin were Thomas Adams B l667 or l683 D October 1722 and Elizabeth b 1687 Isle of Wight.The will for Thomas was written July 26,1722 recorded Oct 9,l722 (Page 560) Martin Brandon Parish of Prince George Co. VA He listed his children as Thomas, William, David, Benjamin, Henry, Elizabeth Whittmore Adams and Mary Phillips Adams. This informtion appears to be reliable. Thomas' father is listed as Thomas b 1641.
Ie you have any additional information on this family I woulf appreciate hearing from you.Thanks Wally
