I know John from our summers together working as ring-toss attendants at the Chesterfield County Fair. I can definitively state that John is neither a direct nor an indirect descendant of "the" John Adams. The poster who suggests otherwise is probably on crack or something. Interestingly enough, however, John's maternal grandfather was the late Don Adams (of "Get Smart" fame), and his second cousin is Canadian rocker Bryan Adams. Your readers should also be made aware that your picture of John, though no doubt from the current Hunton & Williams website, is at least 5 years old. John was a summer clerk at Hunton & Williams for many years, and the picture probably dates to that time period. Hunton's website is famous for making its lawyers appear more youthful than they really are. Today John looks a lot more grizzled, although his hairstyle is more successful.


While I worked at the DC Circuit with John, I asked him if he was related to THE John Adams. He indicated that he was NOT.

John Adams IS a direct descendant of his famous namesake. I believe Justice Thomas also just hired another Sentelle-tubby for OT '06, Carrie Savarino (sp?). This is great news for Sentelletubbies, who were shut out in OT '05, after Henry Whitaker (CT--OT'04, now with Senate Judiciary[?]) and Aaron Street (CJ--OT'03, now with Baker Botts) had continued Sentelle's reign of dominance at the high Court.
