How exciting to learn of a new cousin who is also interesting in researching. My grandfather Edwin Ruthven Adams and his twin Ernest wereb. 22 March 1861 Dixon, Lee Co., IL. They had a sister Anna b. 1865. (Will keep researching in hopes of learning who Louie, Jennie, Frank and Hattie were) Their father Lyman was a carpenter. Grandfather Raymond was also a carpenter. Edwin was an agent for the Seaboard Railroad. My mother was born in Nebraska, but my grandmother in Erie, PA. Did my grandfather meet my grandmother in Pa while he was working for the railroad and after marriage did they move with his job to Nebraska? His job did bring them to Haines City, Fl. when my mother was about six and they continued to live in central Fl until their deaths. I wish I had ask more questions. In learning that Preserved Adams and Martha Sheldon were parents of Raymond, I have found many more family lines to research (Fish, Allen, Mosher, Audley, Holmes, Borden, Cooke, Coggeshall, Shaw, Hyde, Johnson, Maxson, Palmer, Potter, and Winters)Have not been successful in learning the parents of Lois Spencer, first wife of Raymond. Believe her father may have been Nathaniel. Please keep in touch and I will do the same.
