[MS] ADAMS of Houston Cnty
DR JOHN WILLIS ADAMS OF HOUSTON MS
I am looking for the sons of John Willis Adams. I found an obituary in my grandfather's picture collection. It said John Willis was born in Houston Ms, abt 1906 and had sons by a previous marriage. He was a minister and lived and died in Cincinnati Ohio. John Willis also had a brother named Rev Tommy Lee Adams. Both brother's attended Simmons Bible College in Louisville Ky. There are, at this count 9 brother's all deceased--John Henry, Leroy, Louis Lee,Tommy Lee, John Willis, Eddy Lee, Earl/Early, Willis/William and 2 that died very young. I have been able to find Rev. Tommy Lee's children. Their names Lula,Kenneth,Jeffrey,and Bernedine with the help of Rev. Robt. Whitlock who pastored with Rev Tommy Lee. All the Adams brother's did not share the same mother.
Names of JOHN WILLIS ADAMS children have been lost. He died in 1972 in Ohio. We will be celebrating the ADAMS brother's family reunion in St Louis Mo and would like to find lost cousins. I have sent a written query with information about the 1st documented Adams from Monroe Ms to the Houston Ms Court House. I hope someone on the board or in the Court House will take the time to help the cousins reconnect.
