Son of Thaddeus & brother of Nathaniel, Asa, and Thomas (and perhaps others). Living in a cluster / next door neighbors were Thomas, Niram and Asa in Danbury CT. Niram is a nickname for Adoniram. Records can be found under both names, although he was always called 'Niram'.

For info pertaining to mutual granddaughter of Niram and Nathaniel which establishes the link to Thaddeus Dikeman, see:

Paternal lineage: DIKEMAN/DYCKMAN
Niram8 Dikeman (25JAN1779-MAY1862), Thaddeus7 Dikeman (1739-1834), Fredrick6 Dikeman (17JUN1711-1765), John5/Johannes Dikeman (1671-28APR1768), Cornelis4 Dyckman (1647-), Johannes3 Dyckman (1619-1672), Joris2 Dyckman (1585-1643), Jurgen1 Dyckman (1536, Coesfield Westphalia Germany).

"The Dikemans were considered to have been French Huguenots who left southwestern France during the" Religious Wars" and settled in Westphalia Germany as workmen on the dyke systems there. In taking the trade name, they lost their original identities but gained protection through anonymity. From Germany, they migrated to Holland in the same trades, and once there married into Dutch and other Huguenot refugee families." This oral history of the family has not been, and probably cannot be documented.

Niram claims documentable Huguenot lineage through his paternal gg-grandmother, RACHEL DeVAUX.
