Hello,
My name is Deleana Adams. I was born in Oklahoma and raised in Arizona. My first and only son, Scott, currently resides with me on the east coast where we've lived since the 1960's. I came from the Rocky Mountains, Grand Canyons, and desert cactus to sea level sand and bog.
My husband, Lanier, of 35 years was an Army Vietnam Veteran who died in 2009.

My numerous hobbies include cemetery rambling, bird watching, genealogy, art quilting, geocaching, Appalachian Trail Volunteer for 30+ years, backpacker, traditional basketmaker, amateur photographer, and Celtic musician.
As a performing vocalist and musician, I play Irish pennywhistle, Bodhran (Irish frame drum), Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer and Piano. I was also the lead vocalist and music arranger for a local band, "Tapestry." We regularly performed at coffee houses, art museums, zoological societies, period reenactments, music festivals and historic villages.

I attended Athens College in Athens, Alabama with a major in nursing and biology and received an entomology certification at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. At the Communicable Disease Center in Atlanta, Georgia I also received training in mosquito-borne diseases and identification while working in the lab and field for a County Mosquito Commission.
I was also a volunteer adult literacy tutor.
My genealogy research includes the following Irish, French-Canadian, Scottish, Welsh, Native American, Italian, German and English surnames:
Adams, Bernius, Botkin, Briley, Baldwin, Caldwell, Canada, Guy, Hackett, Hall, Harvey, Haslam, Hipp, Jackson, Kiernan, Lindsey, Martin, McDowell, MacPherson, Moore, Moseley, Painter, Parks, Reilly, Roberts, Simpkins, Smith, Sproule, Staats, Taylor, Walker, Whitted, Williamson and Wineinger.

If you see a memorial for someone who is a member of your family, you may send a request that maintenance of their memorial be transferred to your FAG account. In doing so, please provide your Find A Grave contributor number and your relationship to the individual. But if I am also related to that person and have personally researched and composed their memorial, I may not transfer maintenance. However, I will gladly accept any documented corrections or additional information that you wish included, and will endeavor to make those corrections as quickly as possible. Please follow FAG procedures for all requests.
