I am trying to trace back and have gotten stuck. I need parents names of Jesse Adams & Amanda Williams. And any other info would be appreciated.
This is all the info I have on them (some of it is conflicting): My great, great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Adams Garrison (b. Dec. 31, 1861 in MO, died April 2, 1937 in AR) who married Ed Garrison (b. Oct. 22, 1859, died April 22, 1934 in AR). They had children: Jesse, Sary (?) Julinder, Rhoda Melvina, Lee, Sarah Jane and possibly more. Mary Elizabeth Adams Garrison's funeral record lists her parents as Jessie Adams and Amanda/Manda Williams Adams. It said they were both born in Oklahoma. What info I have found on Mary Elizabeth Adams' parents (Jesse Adams & Amanda Williams) is that Jesse Adams was born about 1838 (found headstone says 1837), possibly born in Perry Co., Kentucky. Died in 1902 in Douglas Co., Missouri. Amanda Williams was born about 1838 (found headstone says 1834) possibly born in Missouri. Died in 1926 in Douglas Co., Missouri. The 1880 Christian County, MO census that says Jesse and Amanda's children were: Mary Elizabeth (b.1861), Cyntha J. (b. abt. 1865), Margarette (b. abt. 1866), Fanna (b. abt. 1871), Ellen (b. abt. 1873), William (b. abt. 1877) and David C. Adams (b. abt. 1879).
