My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Surname Saturday -- ADAMS (CT / MA > NY > MI)

This ADAMS line is the first of my "brick walls" I am sharing. ADAMS is a very common surname, and with the first name being John, locating him in records is made more challenging because he served in the Revolutionary War in Lexington, so you can imagine my problem. I am not asking for help, but of course will be glad to accept suggestions. Family lore claimed we were related to the President, and my father was named John Adams Poole. I've not found any evidence of a connection.

NOTE: I have since discovered that I am related to President John Adams, and it's through John Alden of the Mayflower. Post was written on March 8, 2015. It may be seen HERE.

Hello,
I am the great great great grand daughter of Orin J and Betsey Adams. The Dewolf side of the family. I am also wondering about Betsey E Adams Dewolf family history also.
Thank you
Claire

Wendy said...

Oh gosh, Adams is definitely among those difficult names to research due to the fact that it occurs so frequently.

Sorry to say that I cannot assist. I hope you find someone who can shed some light on this brick wall!

Barbara said...

Follow-up, Claire and I have been communicating, and she is most probably directly related to John Adams. Wendy, thanks for writing. We all have brick walls, so I am not alone.

Dr. Bill (William L.) Smith said...

Wow, what a challenge. Good idea to include as much as you have. Best wishes!

Bill thank you for your comment. It might be my most rewarding post yet. I will be writing more about the first post. More is better that is for sure.

Heather Rojo said...

I'm just re-reading some of your older posts. This is really funny because I have a brickwall related to a John Adams, too. I finally figured out his lineage, but I'm stuck on his wife. He married an Amelia on 11 June 1843 in Topsfield, Mass, she was previously married to a Thomas Lewis and a Thomas Johnson. Amelia and Thomas Lewis are my 4x great grandparents from Salem, Mass. I thought that by tracing the Adams line I might find a clue (you never know if someone married a cousin!) In my case, I found the Adams line (back to William Adam arrived in Ipswich in 1635) but I still don't know who is this Amelia!!

Barbara said...

Heather, I also have three other Adams trees, one from Newbury, Essex Co., MA, one from Hartford, CT and one from Fairfield, CT. I can only hope my John Adams above will connect to either of the Ct lines. I'm praying. I've nothing on you William Adams, darn.

subject The Adams Family

Hi Barbara, I share the same disease.......I have some George Adams members in my tree. They were originally from Cambridge, Lexington, Watertown, Waltham and Lancaster, MA and they did had son a named John
The family left the greater Boston area after the Indian raids at Lancaster, MA (King Phillips War) and went to Ct with a Rev Hooker and many other families
(Graves, Spencer, Jones and others ) to Haddam, CT and were the first founders
There is a John Adams b. 16 Oct 1696 in Watertown , MA , d. 22 Nov 1732 in Colchester, CT
This family is connected to Samuel Adams and Samuel Adams is a cousin to the Presidential Adams family, I have tried to find and connect George but haven't been able to spend enough time on it at the moment.
I'm working on the Nathaniel Cone family for DAR membership along with Isaiah Younglove and Benajah West. (Permission granted from Gail for me to post here.) Thanks Gail

abigail said...

I'm running into the same "brick wall"! Being new to family research, I thought the Adams branch of the family would be relatively easy due to the family insistence that we are "related" to the Presidential branch. Ha! My great-great grandfather was Henry Adams of New Albion, New York. Family legend has it that he was directly descended from the famous Quincy, Mass Adamses, but I can't even find out who his father was!

abigail said...

I'm in the same boat. My great-great grandfather was Henry Adams of New Albion, New York and the family legend has it that he was descended from the Quincy branch of the family but, who knows? I can't even find out who HIS father was! He was born in 1804 and died in 1880, and if anyone can shed any light on this I would greatly appreciate it as well! Being related to the Adams family is HARD on the researcher!

Barbara said...

Abigail, thanks for writing. I wish I had your email, perhaps we could share something.

Anonymous said...

Its very interesting about your researching on the Adams Family after I read the history and comments.
I am not sure anyone in the Adams Family was slave owner in New Orlean, LA. If that's true or not. I hope that this is not offensive to you. My grandmother said my great great great grandfather was relative of the Adams family. I have one problem with her story because her cousin has proof of document. I will ask her later.
What is surname for the Adams?

Susan said...

I always find it fun when a post contains both my adoptive family (Dad was from Niles, Berrien Co, MI) and my biological family, a massive proportion from Genesee Co, NY, Batavia, Bergen, etc - including my 3x-great-grandparents Orin & Zebodie DeWolf. I have to go back and read- her daughter Nancy married into the Adams Family, her husband Asahel Ball's mother's maiden name. What was the question? ;>

Susan said...

Also, Orin Joseph DeWolf's sister Nancy Ann DeWolf married Asahel Ball. Asahel Ball's mother was Emogene Adams 1835 Jefferson Co, NY -1909 Murray, Orleans Co, NY - no idea if the surname thing is coincidence or family friends/distant relatives. Emogene was the daughter of Asahel Adams and Margaret Trude- 1850 Census shows them in Canadice, Ontario Co, NY.

Barbara Poole said...

Susan, thank you so much for your information. I added the names for Nancy's husband and his mother's line. Every little bit helps!
