John Adams, Loyalist, CT & New Brunswick, Canada: Generation 5 – 2X Great Grandchildren, Part 3

NOTE: First and foremost, this is still a work in progress. It’s been at least 20 years since I did a major revision on this family. Many records have been found in that time that tidy up a lot of dates and places, many of which came from family records.

The descendants are listed in ahnentafel order (in birth order of the children of John and Sarah.)

If you are a descendant of John Adams and Sarah Coley and can fill in any more of the question marks, please leave a comment.

These are the known 2X great grandchildren of Loyalists John and Sarah (Coley) Adams through their son Daniel.
