My Grandfather's name was David A. Adams Sr. He recently passed. His Father was Lucian Walker Adams. William Leander Lee Adams was his father. George M. Adams was Williams' Father. My grandfather told me that William Leander Lee Adams left his father Lucian when he was a child. There is speculation that was after he had committed a crime. There is an indication that he changed his name to William Auxier. Auxier would have been his mother's maiden name.
