Hi Roger, My name is Brenda, and I am a descendent of the Adams family from Iron Co., Utah. My great grandmother was Emily Jane Adams. Her father was James Adams, and her mother was Sarah Ellen O'Carroll. They came to Utah from Canada. My great grandmother lived in Panquitch and her sister, Anne Isabell Adams, who married Meltier Hatch, setteled in a place they named "Hatch", in IIron County.
I do not speciffically know the name you are seeking more info on, but the Adams family was very large with so many descendants. May I ask how you are related?
I will keep my eyes open for the name and will let you know if I happen to find any infor on John Virley Adams.
Hope to hear from you, Brenda
