Yes Charles died in Lake Charles LA. Sarah Died in either Jefferson Davis Parish or Calcasiue Parish. I don't know where to go in Louisiana to find death records.. Sarah's headstone says death date was Feb. 14, 1944. But her name is spelled Serah on Headstone.(think it is just a mistake)
Charles and Sarah Had the following children:
Henry died at birth.
Walter Leonard 1-26-1885
Mamie S. 3-11-1888
Edna 2-26-1891 (Twin)
Nettie Goldie 2-26-1891 (Twin)
Clarence July 1892
Pearl Stella June 18, 1898 (My Great Grand Mother)
(I have more on this line information)
Yesterday I looked at a lot of census records and came up with some more Questions.
I found the 1830 census with David V. Adams, in Mespillion Hundred TWP, Kent county, Delaware. there is a total of 6 and 1 free colored boy (10 to 24).
in 1850 I find David V Adams(50) in Deerfield TWP, Ross County, Ohio. Eliza(44), Elizabeth(20), Peter(19), Jane(16), Isaac(13), Samual(12), Rebecca A(10), Isabel(8), Meary F(3), David(2).
same county and all Here is Peter Adams(40),Meary(36), Wesley R(12),Ruth A(10),William(8),John W(6),David D(4),Nelson(2), David V(21)
1860,Deerfield TWP, Ross County, OHIO
David V Adams(60),Eliza(54),Jane(24),Isaac(23),Samuel(22),Rebecca A(19),Isabell(17),(Mary)Francis(12),David(10)
Again same county and All
Peter(50),Mary(47),Westley R(21),Ruth A(19),William F?(17),John(15),David (13),Nelson(11),Lucinda(9),Thomas J(11)
Ok This is where I start Askiing the Questions. Sarah was born Sept 3, 1860(per headstone).
Elizabeth and Peter have left home.
I Find a Peter Adams in Kent County Delaware, Meispillion Hundred TWP.
Is this Him? I don't know. Was Peter in the Civil war? His age was just right to be in there. Could his wife have Sarah and Mary B, Could she have died giving birth to Mary B, and Peter got killed in the war? Maybe that would be one answer to Why the Grand Father raised the girls?
I did find the 1880 census with all them on it. Something also caught my Eye on the same census.
right below Sarah E was the next household:
Hickle Christopher age 54
John Nage 23
Rebecca Jage 21
Christopher Cage 20
Samuael Aage 18
Isaac Nage 16
Edith Aage 14
I really Think Elizabeth could be the daughter to David V Adams. her age is right, she started haveing children about the right age. So It is a good chance that that family should be checked into as being David's too.
Adams Isaac age 41
Almer age 11Son
Well I am gonna keep digging, and I hope you don't mind all this, But I wanted to share it with you, so we can both be thinking alike.......lol...Are you Confused? I stay that way....lol
