I am tracking my own (Fair) and my husbands (Mercer)families.most branches came to the US from various European Countries in the 1700s and 1800s.
There are traces of both families in the South, Midwest, and Northwest US.
One link I am specifically looking for right now is to John and Abigail Adams. Throughout childhood I was told they were great grandparents, but with some research I think it more likly they are a cousin of some kind. I have gone back as far as Oscar Lorenzo Adams (born Sept 3,1847 - married to Dorliska Bogardus) and daughter Mabel Content Adams (born Sept 23, 1873). I am looking for the missing generations.
For the Mercer family I am looking for relations of John Henry Mercer - born Aug 4,1877 in Wilkinson County GA.
Happy hunting to all and if you run across my name in your research drop a line to my e-mail.
