I am looking for the Old Adams Cemetery in Atlas, Illinois.  My Children's' great-grandmother was a descendent of Jeremiah Adams.  I would like to visit this site in October.  Any information would be appreciated.  Thank you.

As far as I know, the Adams cemetery is in Pike County.  It's on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River.  This is a quote from an old Newspaper," Atlas, near the southern edge of Pike County is 42 miles south of Quincy, Illinois by concrete and gravel road.  It is approximately 3 miles south of Rockport, it's post office."  I don't have the date of this newspaper.  It was here that Nancy Ross, the first white child in Pike County, was born". 
Thanks for answering my E-mail.
