I have seen those Family clusters and they are all related. From TX, IL, IN, OH, VA, WV, Etc. I notice the pattern and trend and it is actually how I stumbled on to the Sedwick conection. It was rather amazing.
I have been searching for Adams for years. Yes it does appear to look like a tangled web. It is but the systen to work it is alot of work. But fun. I noticed that the groups of familys in age ranges had the same names just different middle initials, and then every yearthey have a trend for folks passing in the same age ranges even the same months. It is what caught my attention.
I ma going thru those census 1900, 1920, 1930... over 100 per year. The Writing if rough too... but not as hard as Itatian ... trying to read Latin... from the same age. Lots of work ahead.... hope this helps.... Carol Adams
