Today I found the Trinity United Methodist Church cemetery list on the net.It included James W. Adams' son, Mathew Haley Adams, who was b. 1868 and died in 1916.Because of his middle name, I am inclined to think that Mathew was from James' marriage to Frances Ann Crawford since her father, Burton Earl Crawford, was the son of Henrietta Haley and John Crawford.
James was married to (2nd) Louise C. Brown by the time the 1870 Gwinnett Co., Ga., census was taken.Have you found Louise on the 1900, 1910 or 1920 census?Those records list how many children a woman had had, and how many were living at the time of the census.From info found on the net and confirmed by your message, it seems that Lousie was the mother of James Harold (b. ca. 1870), Silas (b. ca. 1872), and Paul Clifford Adams (b. 1877).Do you think you could take a look to confirm how many children she had?
