[MS] COAHOAdams kinfolks

I have found so many of my Adams kinfolks living and sharecropping in this county during 1870-1900.
On the draft records they gave a JW WHEELER as their employer.

I am going to put names out here because these Adams kinfolks are really difficult to find and seperate from other like names.
Sam Sr marr Silva Benton/Berton. He share cropped for J Wheeler
Dan Adams marr to Alice sharecropped for Wheeler.
Sam Jr Sharecropped for J Wheeler

I just finished looking at the Free Fold3 trial and actually have found it rather upsetting to see how many people sharecropped/were reenslaved for this person. And they were my Kin.

I would like to know if there are any of you who had family who may have married the Adams menfolk. I have confirmed ladies names of
Alice to Dan Adams, had a son named Ursie and Jessie
Sam Sr to Silva--had a son named Eligah, and Sam Jr
There is a Alfred Adams bn abt 1863, Andy Adam bn abt 1864
Westley bn abt 1869 marr to a Martha

All of these ADAMS brothers lived around or in Coahoma county as farmers. They had large families and their parents were Daniel And Mary/May Francis Adams from Monroe County Ms.

They also had a brother named Dock Adams. found at least 3 marriage certificates for him. I have been able to confirm one marriage to a Louisa Mcintosh through a confirmed family connection. The other ladies were Susan Hunt and Rebecca Ross. This is one brother that migrated a lot...if you know what I mean.

Now I need to look into this J Wheeler man. >(
