Surnames: Adams, Moore
Tim, Some of your families are close but the timing is off. We are looking for an Adams-Moore connection mid to late 1700's in Pennsylvania.
Seen anything like that?

Tim, are any of your Adams line related to Myron and Hilda (Heater) Adams of Navarre, OH? They had 7 children: Wilber, Richard (my uncle), Mary, Darlene, Beth, Eddie, and Graydon.

Surnames: Adams, DeShazer, DeShazo
Some Adams came West to Oregon in 1865 - the spouse's name was DeShazer, I believe, not DeShazo. Since it is so similar I am thinking these are from the same family?

Story about Todds, Thorntons, Adams, DeShazers, and more...

Surnames: Adams, Cocherell, Cobb
Well, I wish this thread linked to my family, but no such luck. I have the mysterious disappearance of the parents of Eliza Jane (also listed as Jane L.) Adams; George Washington Adams; and Joseph Adams. They were born in Arkansas and the 1900 census lists their parents from Tennessee. Eliza Jane was listed as a Cocherell on this census as head of the household. She later remarried Marshall S. Cobb. Apparently, her previous husband was Thomas Boregard Cocherell.

I so wish I could find with certaintly who their parents were. If anybody can help, I'd be most grateful.

My direct line is through family 1a - william adams and nancy milligan. I have this William as the Son of John Adams and is I think brother or first cousin to David Adams in your family 1. The family 1 settled into Ohio and east central Iowa (Newton, IA)in the 1850's and Family 1a settled in to the South Central (Osceola, IA) area. Through the Milligan side of this connection, I have there is quite a bit of information - let me know if you are still needing it. I don't have it with me now but can get the for you. (marquisdavo@aol.com) You will find many of these adams's settling in western Iowa and Burt Co. Nebraska, etc. and are still there. There was another Adams family in area too - that is tied into my family several different ways...

125. JOHN JAMIESON7 ASHBY (SAMUEL6, JOHN5, ROBERT4, CAPTAIN THOMAS3, UNKNOWN2, ASHBY1) was born 12 Jan 1802 in Oakwood, Delaplane, Virginia, and died 03 Nov 1864 in Alexandria, Virginia. He married SARAH ADAMS. She was born Abt. 1810.

Children of JOHN ASHBY and SARAH ADAMS are:
216. i. CAPT. JOHN TURNER8 ASHBY, b. 15 May 1841, Oakwood, Faquier, Virginia; d. 27 Dec 1928, Soldiers Home, Fauquier, Viginia.
217. ii. HENRY STRIBLING ASHBY, b. 20 Dec 1845, Oakwood, Delaplane, Virginia; d. 10 Sep 1909, Fauquier Co., Virginia.


It gets pretty confusing.

I have Caruthers, Crothers, Clark, Cline, Klines, Smith, Coleman, Donley, Karnes, Manly, Milligan, Wheeler, McLeland, Talbott's, etc. Look into the Ashby's, Van Meter and Harrison, carson's, crawfords, evans, woods, lozier, marquis,and you will just to name a few that get mixed into the pot in various locations through ohio, indiana, kentucky, during this same 1820-1870 period.
