The Francis Adams (1677 - 1758) who married Mary Buck (1684 - 1769) is my 8th great grandfather and his father, Richard Adams (1651 - 1691) who, I believe, married Mary Parnell, is my 9th great grandfather. I have been trying for years to find the names of Richard Adams' parents, thus ascertaining the link to the family of President John Adams, son of John Adams and Susanna Boylston, but have had no luck. I know most if not all of us are connected back in England in the 17th century, and have had luck with other lines but not the Adams line.This has been driving me crazy for years--I've searched many books, articles, and certificates/documents and have still not been able to find the parents of Richard Adams.
Here is my line of descent: Richard Adams(1651 - 1691) m. Mary Parnell (b. abt. 1655) ther son Francis Adams (1677 - 1758) m. Mary Buck (1684 - 1769), their son John Adams (1714 - 1806) m. Alice Piper (1704 - 1740) their son Jonathan Adams (1727/28 -1813) m. Submit Farwell (1733 - 1770.1776) their son Jonathan Adams (1759 - 1843) m. Elizabeth (Gary) Geary (1764 - 1849) their daughter Betsey Adams (1784 - 1855) m. Phinnehas Dunsmoor Jr. (1781 - 1854) their son James Adams Dunsmoor (1808 - 1873) marries Almira Mosher (b. October 15, 1817) their son James Franklin Dunsmoor (1839 - 1907) marries Hattie Murdoc Hoffman (1846 - aft. 1907) their daughter Mary Almira (Myra) Dunsmoor (1871 - 1911) marries Edward Everett Millard (1864 - 1933) their son Lester Ray Millard (1893 - 1939)marries Daisy Elizabeth Creed (1894 - 1944) their son Everett Ray Millard Sr. marries June Marion Karelius and then there's me:Anna Millard Rogers
