I've read your "Adams" postings.Ettie Eliza Adams is my great-great grandmother.David Adams (her father) is a mystery to us also.We have a handwritten document taken from Uncle Sam's bible of which we are trying to verify. Do you know anything about "Uncle Sam's bible"?Document shows:
Charles Samuel Adams b.20 Mar 1793 Connecticut; d.5 Aug 1860 Wayne, Illinois; m. Salinda Stewart 25 Sept 1817; had 4 sons, 1 daughter.
One of his sons is Samuel b.5 Oct 1818; d.19 Feb 1902; m. Eliza Irish 11 Feb 1840 New York.
Document also shows David Adams b.1815; d.6 Apr 1875; m. Sarah (Irish) Stewart 11 Nov 1857.
We have found nothing showing David is Charles Samuel Adams' son.We believe their relation to be through Sarah (Irish) Stewart & her sister, Eliza (Irish)Adams.(Sarah was married to Isaac Stewart 29 Aug 1854 then married David.)
My grandmother (named Ettie after her grandmother) gave me the original marriage certificate of Ettie Eliza Adams and Stephen McCurdy Betsworth. She also gave me a photo of Ettie Eliza.I would be happy to share them with you if you would like a copy.
