Searching for Samuel Douglas Adams family
Posted by: Laurie Roman (ID *****3349) Date: December 09, 2012 at 21:23:15

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.

Since Samuel and most of the children were born in Indiana Pa., we went looking for them without Samuel on the chance they had been farmed out to live with relatives. But we don't know who Samuels parents or siblings were.

In looking for my Great Great grandmother siblings as children in Indiana Pa I found Sarah Adams in the household of Robert Hunter on the , "United States Census, 1850" living in Blacklick, Indiana, Pennsylvania

I found a Catharine Adams in the household of John Wakefield on the , "United States Census, 1850" in Brush Valley, Indiana, Pennsylvania, United States.

Would like to know if they are relatives.
