I am NOT related, just reading messages. I have copied the 1880 census below. I think it must be an earlier on that you looked at????? I think it looks like them. You will note that they come from Ireland and Scotland if it is them.

If you are still stuck I would get John Alexander ADAMS or Florence Adams birth cert. It will give you some solid details for both John and Annie.
