Yes, this is the house where Abigail Smith Adams was born and where she lived until she married John Adams. I had goosebumps all day yesterday as I walked around the house, her parents’ gravesites, and was able to touch her father’s Bible.

(This is all for a picture book I’m writing about Abigail. I don’t know when it will come out. It depends on how long the research takes.)

Today I am meeting with a historian and swimming in archival material.

I love research!

  1. I’m having research-envy. Have a great time! And have you talked titles for this one yet? As soon as you mentioned Abigail, my first thought was “Remember the Ladies!”

  2. Very cool. Sounds like some fun research. Abigail Adams is a very cool person and I think you’d do a great job writing about her. Looking forward to seeing more in the future. 🙂

  3. That would be a great title, but I am trying to move beyond that phrase with her. This one is going to take a lot more research and pondering!

  4. Sounds like so much fun to to go around and see and touch the history! *nerd hat starts to turn green* Have fun and learn lots!!

  5. Lucky girl!

    I’ve been doing some more genealogical research, and found a second connection to Edward Doty – some day, I’ll figure out which degree of cousins you & I are. Meanwhile, I have a bit of guilt over ancestral participation in “King Philip’s War”. I’m sure there’s a story there. The question is whether I want to make the time to find it and write it.
