  1. That’s why its so hard to research my Alabama ancestors. They come from Quincey, Alabama in Coosa County I believe and later moved to Tallapoosa. However there are so many Adams in that area that it is hard to weed out his descendants from others. My ancestor was Samuel G. Adams from Walton County, GA.
