Kate Dunigan, Your posting for yesterday (10/25/08)
First, Also try the 1900 census for Lamar County, Alabama. Next to or just (NW) of Tuscaloosa Co. Alabama summary is below:
Family 305 / 308Adams, James H. Headb. Jan 1878 age 22 , DillaWife b. Jan 1869 age 31 , James H.Son b. Aug 1896 Age3 , John W.Son b. Dec 1898 Age1 Second, Also look at RootsWeb for James Hardy Adams b. Jan 22, 1878 Alabama, wife Adele Beatte (aka Della or Dilla) and 2nd wife Sarah Ann Melvin Reynolds.
There will be 11 hits for this name.
James Hardy Adams Iparents were William Braxton Adams and Amanda Priscilla Coleman.There is is a long list of children (18)for one of the listings (#6 on list) for James Hardy Adams, b. 1878 and may bear some serious verification to fully determine their validity. However, two of the names are James Hardy Adams II and John Weir Adams which are in agreement with the 1900 Census. I believe this to be your family.
