Surnames: Adams, Hill
Hello. Several times I have asked for help trying to ask for information on parents of my Elijah Adams. His parents are still a stumbling block to me. But recently my fathers cousin did a two page Adams family History. Perhaps one of the children of my Elijah is your stumbling block. I would be glad to send you a copy of it. He and Melvina Hill had 16 children.
Charles W.Adams, Sedalia, Mo 1881
Walter Richard Adams, Sedalia 1882
Ida May Adams, Sedalia, Mo, 1884
John Quincy Adams, Sedalia, Mo-1885
Nora Elizabeth Adams, Vanburen, Ark 1889
Mable Estee Adams, Little Rock Arkansas 1889
Foster Adams
Lee Adams
Dock Adams
baby girl Adams
The above 4 children died on the way to Oregon and were buried along the way.
Thomas Theodore Adams, Hepner, Oregon, 1896
Sarah Bell Adams, Hepner, Oregon,1898
Blanche Lumont Adams, Hepner, Oregon
Elsie Virginia Adams, Hepner, Oregon, 1903
Elick Adams, St. Johns, Oregon
Juanita Adams, Lents, Oregon 1908

If one of these Adams is your stumbling block, I would be glad to share a copy of the Adams Family History with you.
It gives full birth dates for most of the children. I would also like to know about their descendents.

Hi. I appreciate your list of name's. Would it be possible to E-mail me another list with the birthdates and where they were born at if you have them. Also can you tell me which Adams you saw that we had in common. I saw that you had several Elijah's but without places of birth, it is harder to pick them out. I would be interested in your Adams Family history or notes that you have. My E-mail is skcj623@midwest.net.
I thank you for the response. Sharon Downey

Hi. I don't remember replying to this before so may have missed the message. I have one Edith Adams on my family tree. She was the daughter of Charles Adams who was the son of Elijah or Eliga Adams. Have seen it spelled both ways. I do not have any marriage for her though. But often you can tell if they might be the same family by the repeat of siblings or parents names in their children.

Elijah had a large family and his brother Foster who also came to Oregon after his wife had died with several of his children. I do not have birth dates for all of Charles Children because I could not find him after the 1920 census. I know he moved to California but not sure when.

Below are 3 generations of Elijah's children. I have parents of Elijah also.
