I do not have any info on the descendants of this family but I do know that the Adams family moved from Thomas County, Georgia to Jasper County, Texas in the 1850's. Faben, Able, and Bullard Adams were three male siblings and other siblings and possible in-laws made the trip. Thomas Adams was their father and he remained in Georgia and died several years later. Unknown why they left and came to Texas with father still living. He was a wealthy man. I would like to know the story. Thomas' father was Colsen Adams from Pitt County, North Carolina. He died in Alabama. I have not been able to trace the family any farther. I am a descendant of Faben Adams.
