NOTE: No ships passenger lists are available that indicate that George I and George II came on any particular ship.

It is interesting to note that our branch of the ADAMS family moved from their home in Massachusetts to their new location in Simsbury CT. Also, if one should look up ADAMS family records in Connecticut archives, it is interesting to note that the spelling of the ADAMS name changes to ADDAMS. Maybe somebody really liked the letter D.
