Today while looking for old Easter pictures, I found a partial answer to the question I asked at the end of my blog post on the migration from Montgomery to points north – Did Lowndes Adams and my grandfather ever see each other again, or keep in touch? I found a photo from 1965 of Lowndes and four of his sisters. I don’t know where it was taken, not at my grandparents house for sure, but it shows they did keep in touch. From L to R we have: Jessie, Maude, Jane, Alice and Lowndes.
Here is a list of household members in the 1900 census.
James M Adams 53
Ida Adams 41
Sarah Adams 18
Emaline Adams 16
Maud Adams 13
Ida Jessie Adams 12
Lowndes W Adams 9
James Russel Adams 6
Alice Adams 3
Although Jane doesn’t appear in this census, she does appear in the 1910 census as an 8 year old.

Now back to looking for those Easter pictures.

Interesting. Is Jane a sister, she not in the 1900 census?
Keep looking. Great work!
how about that!
What a great find. I just found a photo copy of school group, and somebody has listed all the names of the people in the photo on the bottom of it. My mom was the teacher and I had other relatives in there too.
I wouldn't be surprised at some point if one these folks popped out of your boxes! Amazing detail that you keep uncovering.
Amazing! Great photo you are so blessed to have such vintage memorabilia.
Yes I am!
