Fourth Generation


67. Margaret ADAMSON35 was born in 1797 in Tennessee.1

Found Margaret Williams in IN, Madison Co, Richland Twp in the 1850 Census, with children Jonathan, James, Cynthia, and David. There were likely older children as well.

FamilySearch lists a Rachel, born 24 Feb 1824, died 16 Jan 1900 in Spokane, Washington - married about 1851 to Thomas Boggs. Census records, etc. reconfirm that she probably was part of this family.

Another possible daughter is Abigail Williams, b. 10 Feb 1827, married Jacob W. Fidler about 1850, Ross Co OH. Said to have had a son Arthur, b. 1851. No death for Abigail but Jacob is shown as b. 1826, OH, died in 1904, Sangamon, IL.

Margaret ADAMSON and Nathan WILLIAMS were married on 15 February 1818 in Wayne County, Indiana.33 Nathan WILLIAMS died between 1838 and 1850.

Margaret ADAMSON and Nathan WILLIAMS had the following children:

Rachel WILLIAMS was born on 24 February 1824 in Indiana. She died on 16 January 1900 at the age of 75.

FamilySearch lists a Rachel, born 24 Feb 1824, died 16 Jan 1900 in Spokane, Washington - married about 1845 to Thomas L. Boggs

Although the births of the children suggests that Thomas and Rachel were married and in Oregon prior to 1850, he is found alone in 1850, Linn Co, Oregon Territory, working for and living with the Jack family. He was 27, b. in MO. Given the gap between Olivia and the next child Mary, I wonder if perhaps he did not marry Rachel until about 1851 and Olivia is either his child, or Rachel's, by a former marriage - in fact on FamilySearch there is an earlier marriage to George Jones.
