In Reply to: Smith/Adams Family by Lynn Coleman of 18096

It appears that none of their descendants had the name Adams or Smith, as son Samuel and children were also slain, and son Charles had only daughters.

You would have to review the names of the 'girls' and their spouses to follow lineage. Surnames noted below from the following text:
