Mother of Alpheus Adams (1845–1910)|
3rd great-grandfather of MKS on the Watne branch. Family history says that Alpheus was born in Michigan abt. 1845, that his mother died when he was one year old, and that he was taken to the home of an uncle in Owen Sound, Ontario, where he grew to manhood. Research and DNA matches for two of his great-granddaughters confirms Samuel Strain (1762–1845) is probably one of his maternal great-grandfathers, and Thomas McCartney Strain (1785–1865) is likely his maternal grandfather.
