Jim, I'm trying to find family of John Adams b VA 1802.Story is that John left the family trading, and when he returned they had moved. I know John, and wife Ailsey, were in Tn until middle 1840s, then to Southern IL, Saline County with a month old child for the 1850 fed. census (and others) 30 Sept 1850 is the date of the census. William and John were common names in this family,( as well as most of the Adams in the USA) also Stephen,Thomas, and Alexander. My ancestor was Anderson,(eldest 1832 b Tn) who was probably named after his mother's maiden name, tho' I haven't proof of such. Keep me in mind when you search, and I'll do the same for you. Your family comes the closest of any I've looked at.
