I can tell you that Francis Marion Adams married the daughter of Columbus Sawyers in Goliad cty, TX, after the Civil War. The daughter was named AMERICA. , and Francis went by FRANK. The Adams family lived adjacent to and shared a Family grave yard with the Sawyers family. This Sawyers family head, DANIEL Y SAWYERS was my gt gt grandfather who died in 1852 in Goliad.
I strongly believe that the ADAMS came to Goliad with the CULP and BRUTON families from MO. These families intermarried.
The family grave yard on the Sawyers Ranch was located adjacent to a creek which flooded, and I am presuming most of the remains washed down stream. There is One ADAMS grave intact as of 2 years ago that being the apparent Mother of Frank Adams. Her grave is/was surrounded by an wrought iron type fence with a locked gate. I am told that the lock is most interesting as it was identified as having come from an indian trading post which was located on the MO/AR border.
Frank and America Adams followed the Sawyer,Culp, Bruton families to the Nueces strip after the Civil War,
