Re: My ADAMS BRINSON CORKER Brick Walls
In Response To: My ADAMS BRINSON CORKER Brick Walls ()
Gosh, gosh, golly, gee whiz! OMG! Lordy, Lordy, Lordy! What can I possibly say to express my awe? This is so helpful and has opened up whole new avenues for me to explore. There were two Louisas in my documented Adams family: Louisa Adams, born about 1857, parents Coleman and Violet Adams [there is documentation that she married Lester Corker prior to 10/10/1884]; then there is her niece, Louisa Adams, born about 1879 to Benjamin and Harriet Adams. I am now wondering if Lester Corker first married the Louisa who was the daughter of Coleman and Violet, then later married her niece Louisa, the daughter of Benjamin and Harriet. At least this would explain some of the family's reticence in discussing our ancestors. I believe the children listed with Lester Coleman are the offspring of his marriage to the first Louisa Adams [the one who was born about 1857].
I can't begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for your assistance. This has given me enough information to proceed to request whatever documents I can about these individuals. If you have any suggestions as to where I can obtain this documentation, I would greatly appreciate hearing them. [I have, in the past, written to courthouses, county clerks, etc., in Millen, Georgia and never so much as received even an acknowledgment that my letter had been received. Since the letters were not returned, I can only assume that they were received and either discarded or just simply ignored.]
In closing, I wish to say: Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow...................................................................
