Misc. Notes
The Massachusetts immigrant Henry Adams and his wife Edith Squire have been studied by many genealogists. The data given here follow Bartlett160 who provides a comprehensive account of Henry Adams’ family and his English origins. A brief commentary on some widely-reprinted false information on Henry Adams’ descendants (particularly through his son John) was recently published by Ullmann.597

Henry Adams and Edith Squire are ancestors of U.S. Presidents John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Calvin Coolidge,328 as well as poet Emily Dickinson.192
