Adelbert Ames – Civil War General


Adelbert Ames is reported to be my sixth cousin, 5 times removed, through our MRCA, Anthony Eames (1595-1686).  I have documented Anthony as my 10th Great grandfather, so this is a full pedigree for my line.  Adelbert’s raises the question of the name change since his line is male straight through to the MRCA.  Why did the spelling of the name change?   Not unthinkable for the late 1700s when it occurred, but still an item that needs to be placed on the TO DO list before claiming the General as a true “cousin”
