Nanci, have you learned anything more about your Robert Roden ADAMS [b. 1819, LA; m. 18 Sep 1845, LA]? Specifically, do you have his parents or the place or places of his birth and marriage?
I am researching a John ADAMS who married Polly GILLESPIE in St. Tammany Par., LA on 12 Oct 1816 and was on the 1820 census of Washington Par., LA with three children under ten years of age. Finding this couple in the 1850 census would reveal Polly's place of birth. I believe she is related to Alexander GILLESPIE who arrived in St. Tammany Par. in 1813 from Jackson Co., GA and died in Copiah Co., MS on 16 Nov 1839. Can you help?
