Looking for information on my GGGrandparents Sharp Adams and Amanda Reed.This is all I know at this time. Sharp Adams was born 1835 in St. Charles, Saginaw, MI and died September 12, 1864 in Andersonville, GA POW Amanda C. Reed was born Dec 10, 1839 in Rochester, NY and Died January 12, 1921 in Edgewood, Clayton Co., IA They had two Daugters Alice born March 30, 1859 in St. Charles, Saginaw, MI Emma Gene born 11-29-1861 in St. Charles, Saginaw, MI died January 28, 1920 in Gateway, Mesa Co., COI have also see Emma's Name as Lydia Emma.
Amanda remarried an Alex D. Hammond, nothing is know about him.
Then another researcher sent me this on Amanda; .I found an 1860 census record for my GGGGrandfatherTimothy Ingersoll in Brant, Saginaw, Mi. He is listed as 65 years old b. NY,Peter Ingersoll 37 b.NY ..Also living with them is Amanda Adams 21years old born in NY. and Alice J. Adams 1 years old.... The Ingersoll family moved from Washington County, NY in the mid 1830s. I thought this was rather strange?
Emma is my GGrandmother.She married Othello Clay Tomlinson July 4, 1880 and they had 6 children.They divorced and Emma married Fred Miner who also died in Gateway in 1920. I found this on Emma also and question it: Civil War Pension Index Sharp AdamsView Image Online™ Images Online #: 708 State Filed: Iowa Widow: Amanda Adams Relative: Minor: Emma Lambersen (Can't figure out the Lambersen??)
I have an old diary of Emma's that has a Robert Adams and a Joe Adams in there but don't know if they are related or not as I can't find anything more on this Adams Family.If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate anything you will share with me.Thanks
