Thanks so much, Nancy, for a big answer to St. Lawrence Adams ! That may be the very information I have been seeking, sans the 18th century lineage. My first cousin owns late 18th c. wax portraits of St. Lawrence Adams and his wife (her name not noted in the back). I can scan the image for you if you give me your e-mail address. We all have been told that this Adams was supposedly descended from the Adams family of Massachusetts including the presidents John and John Qunicy Adams, through the many different lines that also include their cousins. Until you replied to my message, I was thinking of hiring a professional genealogist to explore the 18th c. lineage. I am going on vacation today and don't have time until I return next week. Thanks so much ! Best Regards, Susan McCown Villanova, Pa.
