Please take a few moments and contact the web master using the subject: "John. Adams family of southeastern Ohio Web Site" when emailing to:



JOHN ADAMS-1 was born in Virginia and migrated with his family to Belmont Co., OH. George Adams-2 was born in VA and lived in Belmont Co., OH; Washington Co., OH, as well as Monroe Co., OH. John Adams is listed as generation-1 simply because he is the earliest researched ancestor. (The immigrant ancestor is usually noted as generation-1 but we currently haven't discovered who he is. Obviously, this will hopefully change over time.)

The SETH ADAMS-3 and HARVEY H. ADAMS-4 (1844) branch of the ADAMS surname lived in southeastern and east-central Ohio, as well as briefly in midwestern West Virginia. The older Adams ancestors lived in the most southern counties and the more recent ones migrated northward into Ohio. The counties were the following:

Belmont Co., OH

Monroe Co., OH

Noble Co., OH

Ritchie Co., WV

Washington Co., OH

Guernsey Co., OH

Tuscarawas Co., OH

Stark Co., OH
