Hey family, I'm, back on the saddle again… been a while... just finished writing my first musical stage play "Blue DIVAS", now onto the editing and weeding out the technical kinks. We really thinking about that big move to ATLANTA, seems like that's where all the family is headed... and the entertainment industry for black entertainers is growing...

Just found more family in Houston, TX on Big Mama’s side, hope they join the group and tell us their ties and a bit about themselves… keep the family tree growing. Let’s plan one big family reunion.

Still looking for family from all over to join....ADAMS, FOLEYS, WELLS, MITCHELLS, MULLINS, SHANDYS: either side, mother or father, we all one big family!

Weimar Mercury, March 9, 1895, page 4
Yoakum Graphic: There was a very sad death in the city Sunday morning, that of a four month old child of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Adams, out in the eastern part of the city. The parents rose early in the morning leaving the little child in bed. After attending to her household duties the mother went to take up her babe. It was supposed the little thing was smothered to death during the night as nothing was the matter with it the evening before. Its remains were taken to Runge Sunday evening for interment.Transcribed by Sharon Sutton
