Subject: [ADAMS-L] LA/1880s/John C., (MD,) & Sam V. ADAMS, (MO?/AK?/LA)
Date: Sat, 9 Nov 2002 14:22:06 EST
I am looking for information on the men in the late 1800s named Sam V. ADAMS
and John C. ADAMS who married Mrs. Sallie E. RAMMAGE, and is mentioned in
information from Franklin Parish, Louisiana near Liddieville as shown below.
Sam V. ADAMS died a short time after marrying Callie Martha MUNN who later
married my grandfather, Louis Hector "Hec" SLAUGHTER, who then after Callie's
death married Mary LEE and then 3rd wife, my grandmother, Ethel Rosalie
HATTEN, whose 1st husband was Joseph Marion WOMACK, Sr..
I am interested in knowing whether Sam V. ADAMS and John C. ADAMS are related
and if John C. ADAMS family from Maryland is connected to a WILLIAMS family
from Maryland in abt. 1790 who also moved to Franklin Parish, Louisiana
perhaps containing the name of Otho WILLIAMS in the family group.
Looking forward to hearing from anyone. PLEASE SEE THE INFORMATION BELOW
