I am very interested in learning about your Lewis Adams son of Collin Adams (wife Frances Nicholson).I think my Adams line may tie in to this family.
The furtherest back I go with my line is to a James Adams (b. ~1795 in VA).He appears in Wilson Co., TN in the 1840 & 1850 censuses and dies there in 1855.His son Edwin (b. ~1817 in TN) married in Wilson Co., TN for the first time in 1837.Most of his children are in Wilson Co., TN in the 1850 census (Edwin, James L., Nicholas, Mary & Louisa) except for 2 daughters.One daughter, Martha, married a Terry Stovall in Sumner Co., TN in 1845 and another, Harriet, married a J.P. Itson who appear in the 1850 census in Montgomery Co., TN.
During the settlement of James' estate, there is a court case identifying all of his children.From this I know that several of his children were living in Robertson Co., TN after 1855.
So it seems to me that James' family has some tie back to the Robertson/Sumner Co., TN area.Also one of his great grandchildren was born in KY while all the others were born in Rutherford Co., TN.Also a Lewis Adams makes an appearance in Wilson Co., TN buying land in 1840 and selling it to my James in 1852.
