I am trying to find information on my great great great grandmother, Sarah Adams. She was born August 7, 1824 in Virginia. I have her parents as George and Eliza Adams. There has been some thought that Sarah was the daughter of George Adams, the first son of John Quincy Adams, and a maid, Eliza Dolph.
She was married to Horatio Delbridge in the 1850 census federal census and in the 1860 she was married to James Hall, my great, great, great grandfather. This census has her born in Ohio. Anna E. Delbridge born MO, James H. Delbridge, MO, George W. Delbridge, MO, Thomas J.Hall, MO and John C Hall born IA. They were living in Warren CO, Greenbush Twp. in Iowa. James signed up for the Civil War or was mustered in there. This is also where Sarah lived with Horatio.
In the 1870 census they had moved to Dale City, Jackson Twp. Iowa. They have had Mary, William, and Louise. I know they also had another daughter, Minnie.
Anna Eliza Delbridge married Hiram Hudson and they are living with James and Sarah in Clay CO, Nebraska. Also grandchildren Estille, James Henry, and Ernest.
They finally move back to Iowa. Thanks
I am looking for information on Ernest Hall and Hertha Marlenee Hall. Ernest's father was John Cook Hall and Louella Parker. They homesteaded in Nebraska for a while. Hertha's parents were Lewis Marlenee and Caroline Williams. They also were in Nebraska. Both families settled in Guthrie CO, IA. Ernest's grandfather was James Hall who served in the Civil War. He settled in Coon Rapids, Carroll Co, IA. He was married to Sarah Adams Delbridge Hall. She was married to Horace Delbridge and had children with him. One researcher thinks she was James's fourth wife. I have not found proof of this. James's father was Thomas Hall and his mother was Sarah Strosnider. They lived in the Shenandoah Valley in VA.
