I've been doing research on Adams in NC/Iredell for about 20 yrs. and I'm still searching. James Adams Jr. married Nancy Blankenship first; his 2nd marriage was to Hilda (Hiley,HIlley) Looper. He is the brother to MY John J. Adams.They are both sons of James Adams and Ritter Adams.
I think James (sr) may have been married before , but no proof.If you want to correspond , if you have/ or need more info. email me directly. claudia firstname.lastname@example.org
