Bio and Links
Since I could remember I have always had love for history especially family history. It started when I was young looking through old photos that my grandparents had kept and asking questions. I love what history tells us about ourselves, where we have come from. The dates and names on a tombstone are more than just facts they represent a life full of stories. Nothing is more interesting to me than people both present and past.

I received your biography for this memorial, but how could she have married Thomas Gay in 1863, then remarried and moved to Tennessee before 1870 if she wasn't even born until 1879?

Lucinda Brock
Is there any proof as to who Lucinda Brock's parents were?

I think DNA testing would be interesting and helpful.

The trouble is that I do not know that Charles Adams has any proven sons and his parents and any possible brothers are unknown and thus not available for comparison testing.

Silas Adams
I am not so sure that we can rule out an Aver Adams.

Aver might be a mistake but if the Silas Adams in the 1830 Laurens, South Carolina Census is our Silas Adams then we have three girls that are unaccounted for.

Yes, it is fun to put all of the pieces together. The silver lining to this is that the more women we have in the tree, the greater the potential we have of finding a direct line woman with mt-DNA to compare with Susannah's siblings to follow the maternal line.

I am just beginning my research on the Adams descendants and I am looking for a direct line male and female who are willing to test for comparison. Have you done a Y-DNA or Autosomal DNA test yet?

Adams Children
I came across this page and I was wondering if you know anything about it since you have much more information on the Adams family than I do.

It says there is an Aver Adams, a sibling older than David Thomas Adams. It also says that Andrew Alexander Adams married an Eliza Ann Gains, rather than an Eliza Drew.

I want to make sure that we have memorials for all of the siblings and that we have not accidently overlooked anyone, wives included.

I know that there was a problem with some duplicate memorials so I deleted the ones I could and I requested that the duplicate of Lucinda Cooper's memorial that I had been named as the maintainer of be deleted, so that should be straightened out when Find-A-Grave gets around to it. I also connected some of the children to the right memorials for Lucinda Cooper and Newton F. Adams and got that bit sorted out.

I meant to say that his daughter's husbands were all fighting, no his daughter's sons.

Silas Adams
Silas Adams is not a common name. There is Confederate service for a Silas Adams in the C Company of the 51st Alabama Partisan Rangers. The man was listed with the rank of Corporal.

Do you know if this is our Silas? It would not surprise me as his sons and his daughter' sons were all fighting for the cause.
