Kathleen, We have a William Riley Adams.You didn't mention any dates or much other info.Our William Riley was born 1831 Monroe Co. IN and died 08 Jan 1898.He was in Wheeling, MO for a while at some time.He served in the Civil War in IN and is buried there.Our ancester, William Riley's father, John Adams was b. 1802 in VA, was in KY, and from there to Monroe Co. IN and married Nancy Bell in 1826.She was born 1802 KY. I am trying to find John Adam's (b1802)siblings and parents.I believe they are related to Hugh Adams 1775 Ky married to Eleanor Ellett, but can't nail down the exact connection.
