Michael, I tried to send this via regular e-mail using every combination I could think of to no avail.GTE/4fonman, gte/4fonman, gte4fonman.None of them worked.The John Adams you cite is John Hobbs Adams, Jr.His father, of course is John, Sr. and his mother's name is Ann.He (John, Jr) married, first, Nancy Ann Caudill with whom he had three children, Elizabeth "Betsy", Stephen and Nancy.His second wife was Lydia "Letty" Simpson, with whom he had 11 children.They are Jane "Jenny", Benjamin, Solomon, Simpson, Mary Ann "Polly", Spencer, Randolph "Randall", John Micajah "Cager", Lydia "Letty", Agnes "Aggie" and Absalom Drury. Several of these names appear in other Adams families through several generations, and most of the families were fairly large as was this one.There was also some inter-family marriage, as close as first cousins, so sometimes the lines get quite confusing. I am descended from John's brother, Spencer, born in 1750. Spencer was an itinerant preacher who started a colony in Eastern Kentucky, Letcher County, and John and his family all moved there over a few years.He, John, died there in 1815, at age 68. Spencer eventually left Kentucky and came to Selma (Dallas County) AL, where he started another colony and died there in 1830 at age80.
