Anybody know of Nancy Ann Frances (Fannie) Adams-Huggins Newman?

+2 votes
She's my great grandma, married to William David Newman, and her maiden name is Huggins. Her birth (1852) and death (1932) info is listed in her profile here. I only found one record showing her dad was John Huggins and that her mom's maiden name is Adams. WD and Fannie were both born in Alabama, and buried together in San Antonio (Roselawn). Details in her profile.

Oh, cousin John Adams (Atkins, or Adkins, Tx) used to come over a lot, and he knew her and my dad's family, and was pallbearer for dad. WD's daughter Carrie lived by them in SATX, same street, and was related to the Adams as well.

Hi Greg!

Have you been able to find more information on your great-grandma?

Hi, no and I am searching using connections now. I tried Samuel Adams (Adams-42) and it said no connection to him up to 10 connections. But the search engine seems to get stuck when I do Huggins-269 and Adams-10 and never gives a result.

We had my dad's cousin John Adams who lived around here in San Antonio and he would show up for big events and dad and my aunts and uncles considered him their cousin and he last lived in Adkins or Atkins Texas.
I only have the same link at Family Search,

My great-grandma Nancy Ann Frances Huggins (Huggins-269) married my great-grandpa William David Newman (Newman-1253). Her mom was an Adams (Adams-9083) related to President Adams and cousin John Adams (20th century) here came to so many events of ours. She married John Huggins. Her name is supposedly Fannie, Frances Nancy, Fannie Ann, Ann Fannie. I am stumped on getting any data on her or her parents, especially the Adams line. I did find this link that lists a possible match at Family Search and there are many similarities with what I do have of Huggins-269: kid's birth dates, 1850s, length of life 80 years for GW Huggins and Huggins-269, same father's full name, same mom's last name, and Alabama as well. WD Newman-1253 was born in Alabama just like GW Huggins. With each having multiple names, could this Elizabeth Adams be my great-great-grandma? The link:

I saw on Family Search also a GW Huggins who had three or more names used in our family back then: John, Jane, William and the fact that George Washington was very close to John Adams and they use GW's name for self and son. And the WD Newmans came to Texas and are buried here, and the GW Huggins results show a younger (son?) of this GW Huggins that came to Texas in the late 1800s ... so it may be he needs to be added to the Huggins children if he is the brother of Huggins-269.

Both my great-great-grandma and grandpa are important to know about. Huggins were one of the founding families of the United States and many were soldiers of the American Revolution. So I ask for help for that sake as well.

I've been trying to locate the people on Wikitree that I found in the Family Search org link. Been working at it a few days to get to this point, so am a little tired.

Sorry for not getting back to you. We had been in Alabama for two years and came back to San Antonio Texas in 2014, and had a lot of cleanup to do here at the house. Thanks for any guidance you can give me.
