Denton served in the Civil War as a private in Co. I, 122nd Ohio Infantry.
Denton Adams and Nancy Wilson had 5 children:Arabella (1853); LaFayette (1856); Laura (1861); Perry (1872) and Alice (1874).
Denton is listed in the 1850 and 1860 censuses, but NOT in 1870; and in 1880, Nancy Wilson Adams is listed as a widow and living in Richhill Twp., Greene Co., PA
QUESTION:When and where did Denton die?Clearly it was before 1880 but where was he in 1870?
QUESTION:What happened to La Fayette Adams?He is listed in the 1860 census with Denton and Nancy, but not after that.Could he have died young?IF so, when and where?
QUESTION: Who is the father of the two children (Alice and Perry) living with Nancy when she is listed in Richhill Twp., Greene Co., PA in the 1880 census?
QUESTION:What happened to Alice and Perry after 1880.I can not identify them in later censuses?
