Re: James Adams, 1740 VA, KY
I have a John Adams, born 1774 in Botetourt, VA - according to his land claim papers filed in 1850 in Oregon.

His path seems to be - Virginia to Tennessee and possibly Kentucky and Missouri before Oregon.
He had two sons when he came - one born about 1810 and another, Henry born about 1828 - both in Tennessee.The middle name of Henry, Jr. was Asbury.
Think that James and John could be brothers?
The name Thornton is intriguing.
