I do not descend from any of the Halifax Co., VA ADAMSes you listed. I do descend from Samuel ADAMS, born 1800, Botetourt Co., VA, married 1827, Pittsylvania Co., VA, Tamson Ann DIX, dau of William DIX of Pittsy C.. They lived much of their lives in Halifax Co., VA. Samuel died 1892, at his daughter's (Mary Reeves (ADAMS) VADEN's) home in Pittsylvania Co., VA. His parents, Joseph Samuel and Elizabeth (SEAGRAVES) ADAMS and most of their children died in the short period, May-June 1810 in "Missouri Territory" (per Bible entry). About 1804, the in-law, SEAGRAVES family migrated to and settled in Warren Co., KY; I believe my Joseph and his family migrated with the SEAGRAVES, but can't yet prove it.
I have much info on this ADAMS/SEAGRAVES family, except, I have very little on them while they were in Halifax Co., VA, ca 1835-70. I know he was a commercial leather tanner, and manufactured various wooden products.
If you have any other details of his Halifax life, I'd greatly appreciate hearing about then.
Thanks for even reading all this. I am not on this message board, and would appreciate your response to me at:
