Do you happen to know if this Nathan Adams had any relation to John Adams, 2nd president? Nathan Adams is also in my family line. Thanks!

As far as I know, there is no close relationship between this Nathan Adams and the president John Adams. There were a lot of Adams families in Virginia in the 17th and 18th century!

They may be related if you go back enough generations, but I haven't found any link.
