Hi...I see that you have a William Adams born on April 5, 1840. So do I but mine was born in Reading England to Nicholas and Eliza Adams. His brothers were John, Benjamin and Stephen. Benjamin is my g. grandfather. I have marriage cert. etc. I don't know if there is a connection to yours or not but the date is exact . But I have no Charles as a sibling. I have the 1851 census for Reading and only those 4 boys show up as the children of Nicholas and Eliza. They are also listed on the IGI. Get back to me if you have any further info. Thanks!!
