Anna’s derived birth is ~ 1836 based on listed age of 14 in 1850 Census, Ohio, Fayette County, Green, Image 24 of 26. (BuenaVesta Township). Anna E. Adams Moon was born Sept 1833 based on 1900 Census, IN, Randolph County, taken 6/19/1900. This must be a mistake since James and Martha were not married until 1834.

856 The Biographical Record of William W. Adams lists his four other brothers and sister which includes a Sylvester Adams but not a James Adams. The 1850 census lists a James Adams but not a Sylvester Adams. It appears Sylvester died early perhaps.

882 Will Stonebraker died sometime in the 1950’s or 1960’s based on a letter from Bob Swaim to Tom Swaim dated Feb 15, 1988.

883 Information pertaining to marriage of Ida M. Adams to William Stonebraker, their marriage date and his date of birth based on an insert placed in the William W. Adams family bible. It looks to be of the same pen as the original bible entries.

884 Death of Hazel Emshwiller Reed in “summer, 1986” based on a photograph of Hazel with the following inscription: “Hazel Emshwiller Reed, 1st cousin of Alice Belle Swaim. Born about 1894, died summer, 1986. Lived on 10 ½ St. in Tulsa. Her mother Ida made double wedding ring bedspread (multicolor w/ white background) about 1930s and Olly acquired it on Hazel’s death.” This is confirmed by a letter from Bob Swaim to Tom Swaim dated Feb 15, 1988 that stated that she died in late, 1986.

885 Marriage of Hazel Stonebraker to Aaron Worster based on an unknown and undated (probably Montpelier Herald) newspaper clipping my Grandmother Belle had that I now have.

886 Aaron Worster date of birth derived as 1887 based on his listed age of 43 in the 1930 Census, Indiana, Wells County, Chester, Dist 2, Image 8 of 25.

887 Hazel and Aaron Worster had no children based on a letter dated Feb 15, 1988 from Bob Swaim to Tom Swaim.

888 Mrs. Aaron Worster (Hazel Ethel Stonebraker Worster) was listed as a pianist in the Montpelier Herald Society section, Page 8, April 27, 1933.

889 Hazel became Hazel Emshwiller Reed based on a notation on a photo of her that my Mom gave me. The inclusion of the name “Emshwiller” implies that she first married Aaron Worster, then married an Emshwiller and then married a Reed. I believe the name Emshwiller may have been a mistake and that the notation should have read “Hazel Stonebraker Reed” but I am not sure. Subsequent to this note Tom Swaim provided me a letter from my father, Bob Swaim, to Tom dated Feb 15, 1988 that stated that Hazel lived by herself after husband Will died and made no mention of her remarrying. So, I believe the Hazel that became Hazel Reed was a different “Hazel”.

891 Laura Jane Champion date of death based on William W. Adams family bible.
