John Adams II, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, John Adams II might describe his life as follows.

I can say little of myself. I was “John Adams, son of John Adams,” when I purchased a tract of land in Stafford County 13 February 1705/6.  Unfortunately, few records of Stafford remain. Although my land fell into the newly-created Fairfax County in 1742, I didn’t stay around long enough to leave much of a mark in their records.
Since I left no will when I died in Fairfax County around 1750, the court let my wife, Elizabeth, administer my estate. On 18 September 1754 as required, she delivered an accounting of disbursements, which included payments to John Adams Jr., Nipper Adams, and Will Adams, presumably our sons. Some of the other gentlemen whose names appear could be our sons-in-law.
