Still searching for Capt. William Adams from Wilson Co TN b abt 1809, married Mary ? from either Al or MS, came to Jackson Co MO between 1831-35. Children b TN were Jacob 1823, Elizabeth H. b 1831; children b MO were Joab 1835, Mary Ann 1838; David 1840 and Sarah 1842. William died 1859 in Jackson Co MO and wife Mary died 1862 there. Both buried in Adams Cemetery. They were definitely friends with the Powell and Bridges families in TN and those people moved to MO about the same time.I appreciate any more info.
