You were the catalyst for a major breakthrough for me.

I have discovered that Irene Adams was the daughter of Abel Adams, born March 3, 1808 in Thomas Co., GA. He died in Jasper County, TX and is buried there. He and his brothers, Fabian and Bullard (or is it Ballard), moved to Jasper Co. TX at about the same time as my Childers relatives who were also from Thomas Co.

Abel, Fabian and Bullard's mother was Catherine Parramore, born about 1785, died June 19, 1855 in Thomas Co., GA. She married Thomas Adams, son of Colson Adams and Rachel Cason. Catherine's place of birth was the Adams Plantation in Thomas Co., GA.

Abel evidently married one of his Parramore cousins, Elizabeth Ann Paramore, born February 22, 1830, the daughter of John Parramore and Nancy Brinson.

It was interesting for me to discover that the descendants of J. Marion Childers and Irene Adams all had names (either their first or middle names) which appeared with great frequency in the Parramore and Adams lines, e.g., Reden or Reddin, Blewett, Abel, Adam, Patton or Payton, and Noah.

Keep in touch and we can share information.
