Maggie, All the researchers of my ADAMS line are at a brick wall with James ADAMS b. 1806 in NC. We understand from a published biography that James had Revolutionary War veteran ancester, but no name or state for him. James moved from NC through KY, IN, and finally settled in IL, dying in Knox County, IL in 1879. His children were Mary Caroline ADAMS b.KY 1833, Wilson Rowan ADAMS b.KY-IN-IL? 1834, William D.P. ADAMS b.KY 1836, John T. ADAMS b.IL 1837, Lucinda Adams b.IL 1839, Alexander Franklin ADAMS b.IL 1842, Phelps ADAMS b.IL 1844, Sarah E. ADAMS b.IL 1846, Julia ADMS b. IL 1853, Lydee ADAMS, b.IL 1855, James W. ADAMS b.IL 1858. Do you have a James ADAMS in your North Carolina ADAMS' line? Thanks very much. -K.
