Family Name Origin

 

ADAMS

 

I believe our surname Adams was adopted from one of the slaveholding families that migrated to America in the early history of this country.  – Ed Adams 

 

                                    It is generally believed that this branch of the Adams family trace their line to Duncan Adams, son of Alexander Adams who lived in the reign of King Robert Bruce, and had four sons: Robert, John, Reginald and Duncan, from whom all the Adams, Adamsons and Adies in Scotland are descended.  The youngest son, Duncan Adams, accompanied James, Lord Douglass, in his expedition to the Holy Land with King Robert's heart, and from him is stated to have descended John Adams, who accompanied King James IV. to the field of Flodden, and there lost his life anno 1513.  He had a son, Charles Adam, seated at Fanno,co. Forfar.  In the middle of the 17th century there were three brothers, descendants of this family, the eldest of whom remained in Scotland, while the other two, adding an s to their patronymic, left their country; James went to Ireland, and is the ancestor of the Adams's of Northlands, co. Cavan and Monagan; and William went into North Wales, and from him sprang the Adams of Carmathanshire (now known by the name of Ap Adam) of the Adams of Pembrokeshire.

Descendants of Mingo Adams

 

 

(Personal information on living individuals has been withheld)

 

 

 

The earliest ancestor I have found on the Adams side of the family is Mingo Adams.  My aunt Christine Adams Tucker told me, shortly after I began my research in 1973, that my grandfather Harvey Adams’ parents were Mingo and Rachel.  Mingo was born about 1833 in Alabama, Arkansas, or Mississippi as listed in several records. 

 

Anthony Neal, a cousin and fellow researcher, informed me that Maria Adams was thought to be the mother of Mingo after she was found listed on the Census with a son Levi Adams whose birth year was the same as Mingo’s brother Levi Adams.  Maria Adams is listed here a possibility of being the first generation.  This has not been proved.  

 

There is also a possibility that Levi and Mingo might be George and Ephraim who were slaves of William Adams of Mississippi who died in 1842.  William Adams never married.  His slaves were distributed among his brothers and sisters.  It was not determined who received George and Ephraim.

Levi Adams gave a deposition for Sterling Cato before the Southern Claims Commission.  Linda Durr Rudd was told that Levi may have been a Free Person of Color.  She doesn’t have the evidence to support this theory other than that Levi never says in his deposition that he was a slave of Sterling Cato, only that he lived on his place.

 

 

1873 Deposition of Levi Adams (col’d) in the
Southern Claims File of Sterling Cato
Compiled by Linda Durr Rudd
Deposition Obtained from Cynthia Benua

 

Levi Adams being duly sworn doth depose and say my name is Levi Adams.  I am 39 years of age reside upon the plantation of Mr. Sterling Cato…..and am by occupation a farmer. I resided upon the plantation of Mr. Cato all through the war, and one morning in the spring of the year during one of the years of the war I do not now recollect the year—Genl Grierson came thro here—I had been down to the horse lot and had just fed the stock and was on the point of returning when my attention was called to a body of cavalrymen who were coming up the road.  They rode up to where I was and on by.  Some of them in the mean time stopped and went into the horse pasture they opened the big gate as they went in, they caught the two mules that were in the lot and a blaze-faced sorrel horse changed their saddle and bridles from some worn out mules that they were riding to Mr. Cato’s and immediately rode out and joined the main body.  Three of the mules that they left we fed and took care of that year and we managed to plow them a little—I also saw the Grey horse that Mr. Cato used to ride—one of the soldiers rode him in the yard.  I think he came in for the purpose of getting water.  He stopped but a short time when he rode off with others who had come in the yard with him, later in the year another raid came through here.  There was about 40 or 50 men two of them stopped at our horse lot and took out two mules, and put saddles and bridles upon them that they had upon some broken down horses that they were riding—and rode them off.  They had got but a short distance when they met Mr. Marshall Clark who was riding a bay horse.  He was returning home from Mill and had a sack of meal upon his horse.  They stopped him pushed the sack of meal off—took the saddle and bridle off from one of Mr. Cato’s mules and put them on the horse and rode along—Mr. Clark knew the mule and rode him here and gave him up to Mr. Cato—who gave him one of the old horses that the soldiers had left—the other horse that was left was old and broken down, we kept him—he was worth about $25.  I would not have given that for him he was an old baldfaced brown—we kept him I do not know what ever became of him—…..the two mules taken were a dark and light bay I broke them both and they were worth anybody $200 a piece…..The last raid stopped here about an hour and fed their horses from the corn crib.  Came in the house and took the plates off from the table and toted off what there was upon the plates and took all down to where their horses were eating and they they got through they left the plates lying upon the side of the road.  I do not know how much that they fed but they could not have fed less than 10 barrels or bushels.  Both of the times that the stock was taken it was early in the morning.  Mr. Grierson took off the grey horse and the sorrel horse and the two mules and the last raid took off one bay mule making five altogether—from the looks of the stock that they left behind them I think they needed the horses and mules that they got from Mr. Cato—….I cannot tell what year it was both of the raids came through in one year—Mr. Cato and all of us were bothered a great deal for plow stock them a week or two and then sent them on home.  These were the only two raids that came out here during the war—they were Yankee soldiers—We never got any of the horses or mules back that they took from us, and we did not look for them. We heard that the sorrel horse was left at Brookhaven but we never found him—I have no interest in this claim of any kind—I recollect everything that happened very well—it was not often such sights were to be seen—

(What I found was -)

The Union troops mentioned in the deposition of Levi Adams are most likely troops from General Grierson’s units.

 

General Benjamin Henry Grierson was a U. S. Army cavalry general during the Civil War.  In December of 1862, he participated in the pursuit of Confederate Earl Van Dorn after his Holly Springs raid against the supply lines of General Ulysses S. Grant. 

 

Grierson led Grierson’s Raid in 1863, a major diversionary thrust deep unto the Confederacy, ordered by Grant as part of his Vicksburg Campaign.  He departed from LaGrange, Tennessee, on April 17, in command of 1,700 men of the 6th and 7th Illinois and the 2nd Iowa Cavalry regiments.  Over 17 days, his command marched 800 miles, re-peatedly engaged the Confederates, disabled two railroads, captured many prisoners and horse, and destroyed vast amounts of property, finally ending in Baton Rouge on May 2.  More importantly, he diverted attention of the Confederate defenders of Vicksburg away General Grant’s main thrust.  He was promoted to brigadier general of volunteers in June.  In 1864 he was assigned to the Cavalry Corps of the Army of the Mississippi and in 1865 he took part in a campaign against Mobile.  On March 2, 1867, Grierson received a brevet promotion to the rank of major general in the regular army for his famous raid. 

 

Grierson decided to remain in the regular army after the war and received the rank of colonel.  He organized the 10th U. S. Cavalry, one of two mounted regiments composed of black enlisted men and white officers, called the Buffalo Soldiers. 

 

The part of Colonel Marlowe, played by John Wayne in the movie The Horse Soldiers, is loosely based on Grierson.

Until recently, the earliest record I had of Mingo Adams and Rachel was a Freedmen’s Bureau Records labor contract sent to me by Linda Durr Rudd, a Mississippi family history researcher and cousin.  Mingo Adams and Rachel Adams are listed on a labor contract dated January 1866 to work a plantation for Henry Cato and David McRee in Copiah County, Mississippi.           

 

 

3.  MINGO2 ADAMS (MARIA1) (Source: Name information from my aunt Christine Adams Tucker) was born May 1833 in Mississippi (Source: 1900 U. S, Federal Census, Beat 5, Lincoln, Mississippi; Roll: T623 817; Page: 7A; Enumeration District: 102).  He married (1) RACHEL NEWEL.  She was born Apr 1843 in Mississippi.  He married (2) MELVINA RILEY in 1881, daughter of THOMAS RILEY and CELIA.  She was born Apr 1857 in Hinds County, Mississippi, and died 08 Nov 1930 in Arcola, Washington County, Mississippi (Source: Mississippi Death Certificate .).

 

Notes for MINGO ADAMS:

1870 Census index lists Mingo Adams as born in Alaska.  The actual copy of the 1870 Census lists Mingo Adams' place of birth as ArK (possibly Arkansas).  Subsequent census records show his place of birth as Mississippi. 

 

Year of Birth listed as 1833 and 1837. 

For 1833 he would be approx. 17 in the 1850 Slave Schedules and approx. 27 in the 1860 Slave Schedules. 

For 1837 he would be approx. 13 in the 1850 Slave Schedules and approx. 23 in the 1860 Slave Schedules.   

 

Earlier in my research there was the possibility that Mingo may have been slave Andrew Ephraim, age 9, son of Elizabeth, age 30, sold with her daughter, Pesliss, age 2, and James, age 35, to Mary Polly Adams Redd and Levi Laird Redd by Nancy Ann Adams Brown and William Brown.  Date of the sale, January 2, 1843.  Mary and Nancy were sisters and the daughters of Robert Adams from South Carolina.  Nancy received the slaves from her brother William Adams in his will when he died in 1842.   William inherited the slaves from his father Robert.  Elizabeth was William's personal slave and rumor has it that Elizabeth's son, Andrew Ephraim, was fathered by William.  However, James, Elizabeth, Andrew, and Pesliss may have been a family group.  This information was received from Debra Keeton, a family history researcher and descendant of William Adams.  

 

Also in my earlier research was the possibility that Mingo may have been a slave of Charles M. Adams, Doctor, born 1835, Georgia, who lived in Hinds, County, Mississippi, but also lived in other Mississippi counties.

I searched online and found the following:

FREEDMEN'S BUREAU HELP PAGE

After the Civil War, former slaves were given the opportunity to enter into work contracts with planters to ensure equitable payment for their labor.  The Freedmen's Bureau (officially the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands) was established by Congress to supervise all affairs relating to refugees and freedmen, including the writing of labor contracts of planters/farmers with freedmen.  The Mississippi labor contracts that

are indexed cover the period 1865-67 and are taken from the National Archives microfilm M826 rolls (43-50). One additional roll for Tennessee, M999 (roll 25), includes a small number of Mississippi contracts; only the Mississippi contracts were indexed.

 

In 1860 Mississippi had 436,631 slaves; these contracts contain the names of some 36,000+ of those former slaves.

 

There are no contracts for six (6) counties: Amite, Claiborne, Greene, Jefferson, Lafayette, and Perry. For searches of a county created after the Civil War (Alcorn, Benton, Forrest, George, Humphreys, Jefferson Davis, Lamar, Leflore, Montgomery, Pearl River, Prentiss, Quitman, Sharkey, Stone, Tate, Union, and Webster), the parent county must be queried.

 

The contracts must include the former slaves' names (many times only given a name), where they were working (usually a county but sometimes also a plantation), age (not always given), family relationships (given infrequently), their employers (planter), terms of their pay (whether in money or crops or both), and in some instances, comments on their health. The terms of the pay are not included in the database.

 

Searches can be made four ways. The search may also be qualified by specifying a county.

 

Some definitions:

Freedman - This is the individual who is agreeing to work for a set wage. Where a full name was recorded, it is entered, last name first. When given named included adjectives such as "Big," "Yellow," or "Old," the adjectives are entered as part of the given name: "Big Sara," "Old George," etc. Illegible names are noted as such. Variants in spelled are retained as found.

 

Planter - The employer (or his agent) of the freedman, last name entered first

 

Plantation - If a plantation had a name other than that of the planter family, this field was used.

(Example: Chesterfield; example: Hawkins Place, the planter's name was not Hawkins). When the name of the plantation and the planter surname were the same, the plantation field was not used. If the freedman worked for the railroad or a company, that information would appear here also.

 

County - The location of the plantation or the home county of the planter.

 

Search Results:

 

Age - The age of the freedman if given on the contract. If no age was recorded, a zero is entered. A child's age is given in months or months and years is converted to the next highest year. For example 3 months = 1 year.

Remarks - The contract may have recorded remarks and/or symbols to indicate freedmen relationships. These remarks are entered using "see" references. Example: The names John and Mary are bracketed on the contract, indicating a couple. On the index, when John is in the freedman field, the remarks read, "See Mary."

The transcriber on ancestry.com incorrectly spelled Mingo’s as Mona and Melvina’s name as Mann in the index. 

The transcriber also listed the family as white.  The actual census document shows their names to be Mingo and Melvina as written by the Census Enumerator in 1900.  The family is listed as “B” for Black on the actual census document.  

 

 

7 July 2007

Aunt Gertrude Johnson Adams Hill, age 93, at her home in Brookhaven, Mississippi related, in summary, that Mingo was full blood Cherokee.  He lived on Indian land.  He came from a plantation near New Orleans owned

by a family related to John Quincy Adams, the President. 

 

Rachel came from Canada.  John Newell brought her from Canada (spelled Newerl by Aunt Gert). 

 

The Newells.  They all related to the Britts.  They related to the Whites.  

 

The White family's real name is Washington.  They could not spell Washington, so it was written as White.

 

Mingo and Rachel are buried in the cemetery by Old Ebenezer.

It helps to learn the geography and history of the areas of the farms and plantations.  Some families consisted

of members born in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.  The truth is that the families lived in the same place, never moved, while the areas changed from Georgia, to Alabama, to Mississippi.  Even the name of the county changed over the years. 

 

         Wayne County derived from the Mississippi Territory (1798-1817) was created by act of the General Assembly of Mississippi Territory, December 21, 1809, and embraced the western, or Mississippi portion, of the old county of Washington, established in 1800 by proclamation of Governor Sargent and perpetuated in the present county of that name in Alabama.  

 

         Out of the vast region have been subsequently carved the counties of Greene, Covington, Jones, Perry, Lamar, and those portions of Lawrence and Marion lying east of the Pearl River.  Finally, the act of December 23, 1833, which divided the Choctaw cession of 1830 into counties, declared that “all the territory south of Clarke County, known as the Higoowanne reserve, be, and the same is attached to, and shall constitute a part of Wayne County.”

 

         The King of England degreed that Florida should be formed into to governments, called the provinces of east and West Florida; that the northern line of West Florida should be the line of 31 degrees, to the run from the Chattahoochie to the Mississippi.  But afterwards, understanding that this line did not embrace the valuable settlements of Natchez and above there, he again decreed the boundaries of West Florida to be as follows:

a line to begin at the mouth of the yazoo, where that stream joins the Mississippi, and to run east to the Chattahoochie; thence down the Chattahoocie, to the mouth of the Apalachicola; thence westward, along the

coast of the Gulf, and through Lakes Borgne, Pontchartrain abd Maurapas, up to the river Amite; then along

Bayou Iberville, to the Mississippi river, and up the middle of that river, to the mouth of the Yazoo.

 

         The territory within these lines, which was known for a period, dating from 1764 to 1781, as West Florida, embraced a large portion of the present States of Alabama and Mississippi.  The northern lines of the British province of West Florida, thus constituted, was that of 32 degrees 28 feet, was embraced in the British province

of Illinois.  The province of Illinois was not only made to embrace more than half of our State and more than half of Mississippi, but also the western portions of Tennessee, Kentucky, and the country from thence to Lake Michigan, the province of West Florida, which was made to embrace the southern portion of Alabama, extended from the line of 32 degrees 28 feet, southward, to the Gulf of Mexico.  We are thus particular in elucidating the British division of our State, because, hereafter, the reader will be made acquainted with the contentions which arose with the Spaniards, Georgians, and the Federal Government, in relation to it.
