James Adams was born in GA 1816 and died in Alabama in 1873.
He married Martha Leath whose family came to AL from TN. They lived in Cherokee Co., AL.
Children were: Nancy Emmeline Mary Frances m. William Beasley Snead Sarah Jane Martha Anne John W. James Thomas M. Thompson George Joseph Louis (or Lewis)
Daughter Mary Frances Adams Snead named her first two sons James Louis (or Lewis) and Walter Ellis.
I wonder if Louis, Lewis or Ellis might be names which are clues to James Adams forebears.Also if any of the names of Mary Frances siblings are as well.The name "Frances" came from the Leath family as did "John."
Have you established any migration patterns of Adams from particular Georgia counties to particular Alabama counties?
Any suggestion which might lead to James Adams family would be apprciated.
