Some Adam’s ancestors go to John Alden (who was on the Mayflower as we all know) via Ruth Alden who married John Bass. One of John’s children was Hanna Bass who married Joseph Adams. That Adams lineage includes John Adams and John Quincy Adams who were Presidents.
Has anybody taken this lineage to Ansel Adams who was a very famous photographer? As photography has been a major hobby all my life, I would love to be able to say that Ansel was a cousin.
