I am trying to locate all the children of William Adams (1796-1846) of Loudoun Co, Va. He died at a young age and his grist mill was sold leaving 3 sons out of a job. Mason and James (his sons) moved to Illinois and William was in Virginia as late as 1868. My only information is through the censuses of 1860, 1880, 1900 and 1910 and Patrick County death records of 1870-1896 (online). The similarities in the names of his children and his profession, miller, lead me to believe that this is our William. The Sallie you asked about does not appear to be in William and Elizabeth's family as their first child was born abt1857. However, I am far from being knowledgeable about this family and would love to hear from their descendants to straighten this out. If you have any information, please let me know.
