A listing at the Pedigree Research File on Familysearch[2] stated that he was married to a woman named Amanda KIDD and that they had a child named Andrew N. ADAMS (Born: 20 August 1831 in New York; Died: 1934 in Minneapolis, Anoka County, Minnesota; Married: 12 April 1851 in Brooklyn, New York to Elizabeth Jane PERRY). This information, however, has yet to be verified through research.
