I don't have anything on this particular Adams. Adams is a very common surname in Windham Co., with a number of unrelated families descended from different Adams immigrants living in the same area.The town of Scotland was not incorperated until 1857. Prior to that it was part of the town of Windham. At the time period you are researching, it was bordered by the towns of Franklin, Lisbon (now Sprague), Canterbury, & Hampton. All of these having various Adams families.
