MCADAMS

In Overton or Stewart or ??? counties of Tennessee in the 1810-1820 time period, we suspect there were three generations of the same McAdams line - John McAdams I (no data), John McAdams II(born in Ireland in 1779, emigrated to America in 1783, married Martha Rodgers in S. Carolina in 1808), and John McAdams III, born 1815 in Maury co. Tennessee to John II and Martha Rodgers. Children of John II and Martha Rodgers (Rogers)by 1815 were James (b1805), Elizabeth (b1806), Mary (b1808), Joseph (b1811), Nancy (b1811), and John III (b1815 Maury co.).

John II was a lay preacher in the area during this period 1810-1820 (family tradition). John II moved his family to Alabama in the early 1820's and then on to Texas in the early 1830's. The family has been in Walker co. Texas for the last 160 years. We have no confirmation of John I or John II in Tennessee during this time period despite his children's later affirmation of this fact. According to family tradition he was a lay preacher in the Republican Methodist c

JOHNSTON

Looking for data on Henry Logan JOHNSTON, said to have been born in Illinois circa 1879. I have a photo of him and 2 of his children taken in Howenwald on a farm around 1920--should be a family visit. Have nothing else connecting him to Lewis County, just hoping to discover a link that can be substantiated.
