I am looking for my wife's ancestors : (1) Oliver ADAMS. Born approx. 1760 in Northumberland (some sources say the region in England, others say the town in Saratoga County NY) and died in 1832 in Preble, Cortland County NY. He moved to Preble, in about 1814, buying land in both 1814 and 1815. His wife's name was probably Catherine, with a possible maiden name of Hager; she died in Preble in 1830. They had 6 sons (William, Oliver [d. in 1816 at 24 yrs], Elijah, John, Abraham and Jacob) and a daughter Zubia. Family members appear in Preble in the 1820 census. William, son of Oliver, married Phoebe LEWIS [no information know] in Preble in 1809. All members of William's family moved to Illinios in 1842. William lived in several locations in the Cook and Kane County areas of IL but settled in the town of Dundee about 1838. One of his sons was DeWitt Clinton Adams, also a prominent Dundee merchant and resident in the late 1800's. I would be especially interested in any birth records for Oliver, his death record, and any obituary there may be. I don't know what church he was in, but his son in IL helped organize a Baptist Church. (2) Derrick ADAMS, brother to Oliver. Listed as living in Sullivan, Madison County NY in the 1820 Census.
