Adams Family
Hi Rose,
My name is Dennis Bice from Ray County Missouri.
I was on Find a Grave and came across your name on some of the Memorials you manage in the Union Cemetery. Your last name is what peaked my interest. You see I'm related to the Adams that are buried there. My 2nd Great Grandfather is George Washington Adams. His Daughter was my Dads Mother ( Mary Jane Adams Bice ). I'm looking for info that maybe you could help me with. I'm looking for info on James Adams the father of George and I'm lost when it comes to James. Any info you have would sure help me.
Thanks for your time.....Dennis

Joseph Dudley Packard, Sr.

Thanks for your reply. As I mentioned, your Find A Grave entry for Joseph Dudley Packard is far more complete than the duplicate entry. It's also far more accurate than the duplicate. It is the duplicate entry that should be deleted from Find A Grave, not yours. I was just asking if you could request that the duplicate entry be deleted. Since I didnít submit either entry, I thought it would carry more weight if you made the request, but Iíll make the request if you prefer. Just let me know.

Most of the Springville Packards are buried in Springville City Cemetery. The Packards buried in Evergreen Cemetery include Joseph Dudley Packard, Sr. and his wife Francis Amelia Messenger, and a number of descendants of Noahís son Milan Packard.

Several years ago I was fortunate enough to buy the last available copy of The Packard Legacy, and I appreciate the enormous amount of work that William Henry Packardís descendants have done to preserve the family history.

I hope you can make it down to Utah and visit the Springville cemeteries. My wife (the Packard side of the family) and I would enjoy meeting you, and we can take you to both cemeteries. If that works out for you, let me know your email address.

RE: Jane Buchanan
I too would like to discuss this further. I live in Alberta, Canada. I will send you a email. I think that the Somerville children's father is John Somerville Jr. Who died in 1849 in Penntown, Ripley, Indiana. If I am right he is the brother to my 3rd Great grandfather.

Jane Buchanan
Hi Rose
We might be able to help each other crack a genealogy mystery. You say you have no record of Jane Buchanan's maiden name, yet there might be a clue in the 1850 census. My Somerville family lived in Penntown, Adams, Ripley, Indiana from about 1838 to 1865. They first came from Pennsylvania.

I am tracing three Somerville children who are living in 3 different households, to see who their parents were. One happens to be living in the house hold of Jane and son John Buchanan. Her name is Rachel Somerville b 1838 in Indiana. The other two children are living in two different households with the last name of Johnson, in Adams, Ripley, Indiana.

The other two children's names are Alvira Melinda Somerville b 1843 in Indiana and Christopher C. Somerville b 1848 in Indiana. It is Christopher that has made me think I know your Jane's maiden name. With Christopher is a Margaret Somerville b 1810 in Pennsylvania. Margaret and Christopher are living in the household of Alexander Johnson b 1802 Pennsylvania. Usually when a Father dies young, the mother will go to live with family and other children will be divided between family. In this household is also a Rachel Johnson b 1770 in Ireland. It is most certain that Rachel is Alexander's mother and I think Margaret Somerville's mother.

So then I think that Alvira who is living with James Johnson b 1800 in Pennsylvanian, is also a son of Rachel and brother to Alexander and Margaret. So then if Rachel Somerville is living with Jane Buchanan b 1802 in Pennsylvania, it would be a close guess that she is also a Johnson and daughter of Rachel Johnson, sister to Alexander & James Johnson and Margaret Somerville.

Its a long shot, yet wanted to share it with you....
