02/20/16 Some Family Rumors, True?
- Ancestor Egbert Adams was the cousin of John Quincy
This true, just not the presidential one.
President John Quincy Adams was in office when our John Q was
born in 1827. Of course it may be that we are related by
off-bloodline decent from some Adams ancestor, just as we, and
several million others, are descended from Lincoln's ancestor.
- We are descended from Sir Walter Raleigh
This may be true and much research supports it, but it hinges on
a difficulty in England that is disputed. We are descended from
hundreds of substantial and common immigrant people. Most of our
immigrant ancestors came from 1620 to 1650, the Great Migration. The descendants of
immigrants from that period account for 95% of all Americans at
the time of the Revolution.
