Note: From Claire, Abt. March 27, 2010 Barbara wrote on blog: On March 27, 2010, I posted several generations of my Adams lineage from Genesee Co., New York and Connecticut. John Adams is my long-standing brick wall. So it was an unbelievable thrill to receive a message that same day from Claire who informed me that Betsey E. Addams is in her line. We compared notes, and although she isn't working on the Adams line just yet, she presented me with the nicest gift, that being several photos of a coverlet made by Betsey at age 19. We are not sure why Betsey spelled her last name as Addams instead of Adams, but without a doubt, she is the same person. Claire, the owner, wrote, "The size of the coverlet 70" X 90" width. It was (from what I read) sewed together down the middle. The coverlet has in the opposite front corner of the name the same name/date/county but backwards. The condition of the coverlet is pretty good." On the day I did my blog, Claire also wrote, "I was told by my parents it was a gift to my parents handed down years ago at the time they were married. They have been married 58 yrs. I have been searching on line a couple of weeks now and came across yours today! I too wondered about the Adams family name since my dad thinks he heard that Betsey E Adams was a descendant of ? some Adams in history of ? background!!" That last statement ties into what I've always heard. Our John Adams is somehow related to the President. What I never mentioned was the fact that in our foyer was an etching or drawing, of John Quincy Adams...he was the first thing I saw every time I entered the house. And why in the heck, did we move to Lexington, Massachusetts (a town where John Q. Adams visited)? Is there a connection? I need a detective to figure this mystery. _________________________________ From Claire on 4/14/2010 Hi Barbara, Very nice! Betsey E Adams had a daughter Ada and a son Frank alive when my mom was born (1926). Family gatherings in Batavia, they must of been together, both siblings died 1943. I saw something in a death notice that my great aunt and uncle Leon and Maria Dewolf had saved. Leon Dewolf was the brother of my maternal grandmother Edith Dewolf Conlin and brother of Herbert C Dewolf. The three are the children of Charles Freemont Dewolf and Mary Kibler Dewolf. My great uncle Herbert C Dewolf wifes name was Mary Langdon Dewolf. Mary Langdon Dewolf mother was Amanda Warren Langdon died at age 83 (10/07/1882-2/28/1966). Amanda was born in the town of Eagle, NY and died in Hermitge, NY. Amanda Langdon parents were William and Lydia Barber FOOTE of Eagle,NY.(at least when daughter Amanda was born they were in Eagle NY) Also the first husband of Mary Langdon Dewolf was Milton N DAVIS of Batvia, NY.
