Robert, I believe that "this" JMA may be my g-g grandfather. I do know that he was born in Ky. in 1812, and moved to Monroe Cty., Mo. where he married Cordelia Gaines in 1841. I have more concerning his date and place of death if you're interested.
Do you have any further info on him in Ky., specifically, the names of his parents? I have an idea, but i need further evidence.
