Glad to see someone is doing resarch on this Adams family. Fannie Adams is my Great Grandmother through their son George Marion Rice and his son Forrest Roscoe Rice and my father Jay Forrest Rice.
I have often wondered if we were related to the President John Adams.
Since George Washington Adams named his son John Quincy Adams.
I think my fathers brother looks a lot like the President Adams. Probably my emagination.
I found an "Account of Sale" in the Probate Court Records for a John Quincy Adams that died December 10th 1887 in Pettis,Co.Mo. A George W. Adams and Will T.Stephens,Adams made the account of the Sale.
Don't know if this John Quincy Adams might have been George W. Adams father or maybe a brother.
I lean more towards a father since George W. named his son John Quincy.
This Will T. Stephens bought a family Bible,Mormon Book, and History of Pettis,County book at the sale. Also a Mrs M. Stevens bought one overcoat. Could these Stevens people be related in some way?
I was told that Jane Adams was born in Ireland. My Grandmother I think told me that.
Would be interested to learn more about this family.
