Amanuensis Monday: McAdams Family Record, page 1

Thanks to John at Transylvanian Dutch for providing a framework (and nudge) for transcribing family records, news clippings and other treasures.

This is the first page of the McAdams Family Record I scanned and posted separately.  It details the family of Thomas C. McAdams (1806-1881) of Washington County, Tennessee.  Better minds than mine can decide if it's an original (derivative), secondary or full of baloney source.  And before anyone asks, yes they really did have 11 children - all boys.

(This information copied from family record by R. N. McAdams, July 21st, 1878).

It is clear the last three deaths listed were added after R.N. McAdams copied the record from his father's family record.
