I am wanting any information on Sarah Jane (DONALDSON) SMITH ADAMS, who was the dau. of Abraham and Sarah DONALDSON.

There were three boys and 4 girls born to Abraham and Sarah DONALDSON: David; Samuel, who married Margaret Mildred ROOK, in Mercer Co.; Calvin, who married Henrietta ADAMS in Mercer Co.; Mary; Martha; Rachel; and Sarah Jane.

Sarah Jane, b. 1851, m.1st Hiram SMITH in Ashland Co., Ohio in 1870. One dau., Icy A., was b. 1871. Sarah Jane married 2nd John Quincy ADAMS in Mercer Co.,Mo. about 1876, and is buried with him in the Wilder Cem. in Mercer Co. John Q. ADAMS was b. 1819. He was 32 years older than Sarah. Don't know if he was married before, but they had two children: Lula May, b. July 28, 1878, and James Monroe, b. Aug. 14, 1882, both in Mercer, Mercer Co., Mo. I think they are also buried in Wilder Cem. in Mercer Co., Mo. I would appreciate any info from any grandchildren or decendants on any of the above children.

Thanks, Ramon L. Wright

Submitter: Jean MacRae(
Date: Oct 4, 2007

I am seeking information about my MACRAE great-grandparents, John and Catherine, who lived in Ravanna, Mercer County, from about 1870 to about 1888.
Three of their children are buried in the cemetery at Ravanna:
John Charles, William G., and Lewis H MacRae, all of whom died in 1875.
Their other children were Duncan, Katherine, Franklin, Alfred Burnett (our grandfather),Tolbert, and 3 others whose names we do not know.
We think that John MACRAE died in about 1888 in Ravanna and would be grateful for any record that might confirm this - perhaps a newspaper article? And for any other information anyone might have about this family.

Thank you!
