Y'all want to hear something cool? Of course you do. Everyone likes to hear cool things. I was working on my geneology the other day, working on my Adair line. Here's what i found: my great-great-great-grandfather John Mangum married to Rebecca Canida Knowles had a daughter, Jemima Catherine. She married Samuel Jefferson Adair. They had a son George Washington. He married Emily Perscinda Tyler. They had a daughter, Ruth Alice. She married David Lorenzo Huntsman. They had a daughter Rosetta Irene. She married John Theone Biggs. They are the parents of Richard Jess Biggs (aka R J Biggs). John's brother Kleo Ottwal Biggs married Alice Amelia Gallagher. She is a decendant of Manessah Gallagher who is the father of Richard Harvey Gallagher who was Grandma Clara's first husband.
George & Emily Adair also had a son, William Albert who married Lucretia Black. They had a daughter, Eva Irene Adair, who married Wesley Weiler Chapman. He is the brother of Otanm Louis "Odie" Chapman who is the father of Val and Al Chapman.
You never know who you are going to run into. I think it's cool. Don't you?


  1. so does that mean we are related to the Biggs and the Chapmans?

  2. i'm not sure if we are related to the Chapmans, but we are related to the Biggs

  3. That is AWESOME! I love the Biggs! You know, that also means that we are related to the Beavers ;)
