none. neither him nor his father ,John Adams, own any slaves

John Adams did not own any slaves.

No, not at all. John Adams actually provided John Quincy with the knowledge to be who he was. John took John Quincy with him during many political excursions and John Quincy gained a great knowledge. Although they both had their own views, the two respected each other. In essence, John Quincy did look up to his father as a great man.

The second president, John Adams, was not a slave-owner.

John Adams rationale consisted of republicanism and a supporter of the independence of Great Britain from America. He opposed the idea of slavery and made it his lifelong goal to not own slaves.

No Adams never bought a slave and declined on principle to employ slave labor. Abigail Adams opposed slavery and employed free blacks in preference to her father's two domestic slaves.

John Quincy Adams, who served as the sixth President of the United States, became President on March 4, 1825, and exited the job on March 4, 1829, having been defeated in the 1828 election by his successor Andrew Jackson. Adams was one of three Presidents who did not attend the inauguration of his successor of his own volition, the others being his father John Adams, and Andrew Johnson.

Of the Presidents who served before the civil war, most were slave-owners. John Adams, his son John Quincy Adams, Millard Fillmore and Franklin Pierce did not own slaves. James Buchanan purchased two slaves from his brother-in-law but immediately freed them. William Henry Harrison and Martin Van Buren had both owned slaves earlier in their lives, but (like Buchanan) did not own slaves during their presidencies. Of the Presidents serving after 1860, only two had been slaveowners. Andrew Johnson had owned slaves earlier in his life, as had Ulysses S. Grant, who is known to have owned at least one slave and who profited from the use of slaves belonging to his father-in-law.
