For years I have searched for the parentage of James Adams born c. 1820 in GA and died 1873 in Cherokee CO AL.His wife was Martha Leath.
Looking at the 1850 Cherokee Co. census there is only one person who at first glance appears to be a kinsman.That is Enoch Adams born c. 1824 in GA.By 1860 he was in Carroll Co. AR and in 1870 and 1880 he was in Newton Co. AR. He married his first wife in AL and second wife was Susannah, likely a widow with the married name of Maidwell.
In 1880 Enoch Adams told the census taker that both his parents had been born in VA.
Do you have any information on Enoch Adams?Can you shed any light on whether James Adams (1820-1873) may have been his brother?
