George Adam(s) Valley Township

George Adam(s) Valley Township

On December 10, 1845 my great great grandmother Lydia Adams died in Pittsburgh. Leaving her husband Samuel Douglas and the following children.

9 year old Ann Jane Adams Allshouse b. 20 Nov 1836
7 year old Sarah Rebecca Adams b. 22 May 1838
6 year old Catherine E Adams Murray born Oct 31, 1839
and 2 year old George W. Adams b. 16 Jul 1843

Have not been able to locate any records of Samuel and the Children together after Lydias death.

Wasn't able to locate the youngest child George in 1850. Based on his date of death 06 Dec 1861 LDS Ordinance P 21 Dec 1915 SGEOR we found his Civil War information. Adams, George Co B, 78 Pennsylvania Inf. Private Age 18 years Appears on Company Muster roll for Aug 14 to Oct 31 1861 Joined for duty and enrolled: When Aug 14 1861 Where Camp Orr Period 3 years Died at Camp Negley in Hospital 7th December 1861. Another page says Died of disease Dec 8/61 at Camp Negley Ky. No indication of where he was buried.

One record says he enlisted in Armstrong county so looked for him there. Still could not place him in 1850, but did find a George Adam in household of George Adam, "United States Census, 1860" living in Valley Township with the correct age and birth year.

Would like to know if this is the correct George Adams and they just left the s off the end of the name.
