date of 1732, as noted in the Bible  for Samuel McAdams, husband of Jermina Justice in Orange
County, NC, son of Joseph McAdams is not correct.   Samuel was the grandson of  John and Sarah 
Sloss McAdams and can be confirmed as being bornin 8 Oct. 1782.  There is no other information on 
the McAdams family in the Justice Bible.
