      Email from Lynell Cordell:

      I've been working on the Adams family lately. Lizzie 'Adams' Trawick's family was in Van Buren Co. Ar in 1860 & 1870 and then disappeared. I found two marriages in Van Buren Co. that I thought could be their daughters, Mary Jane married Alfred Bost and Martha E. married George Parnell. So I traced both of them to Jack Co. Texas and today I came across the 1880 Jack Co. census online and couldn't believe it when I saw William V. and Nancy Adams there! How about that?
