John Quincy Adams

6th U.S. President

"The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made 'bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God' (Isaiah 52:10)."

--Life of John Quincy Adams, p. 248.

Descendant of Pilgrims John Alden and William Mullins.

I am trying to find a link from my family tree to John Quincy Adams. I have only a small amount of info from my Mothers notes. My great Grandmother Fanny ( Fannie, possibly Francis) Haney born Adams is the 6th generation descendant from John Quincy Adams and a cousin to Samuel Adams. Her estimated Dob 1888 according to Kentucky 1920 Census and my mother's notes and her death is 1947 listed in Family Bible. Thank you

Wow. After I had found that on my mother's side we were descended from John Alden and Priscilla Mullins, I had found a list of famous descendants of the Mayflower. It's amazing that we're not only related to one, but two presidents.
