Note: NOTE FROM LORI: Cora married my relative, Wayne Yousse. Note that census research shows Adam's parents to be Adam Sr. and Elizabeth, while his wife was Catherine. It looks like the book mixed the two generations together. In the book above, Adam's father is given as Jacob. The daughter of Cora Kramer and Wayne Yousse said that Adam's father was also named Adam. The siblings listed for Adam Jr. do not match other sources and could actually be Adam SrÂ’'s. siblings.
