I was an Adams too. I have James W., Frank, Charles, Obadiah and Thorton.I have recently run onto a William, Obadiah and Thorton enlisting in the Confederate Army as volunteers at Savannah.I'm wondering if this is father son and grand-son.Obadiah m. Jestin Davis from Tenn. They moved to IL. Thorton went to IL but left his wife (Elizabeth Chilton and family).All are buried in So. IL except Thorton as far as I know.Need more on Thorton if anyone can help.karen A.
