John D. Williams posted a message in July 1999 regarding William ADAMS, VA to Wilson Co TN. I would very much like to contact him, but do not have his e-mail. I have info on this ADAMS line and would like to share. My Capt. Wm. ADAMS came to Jackson Co MO from TN in 1830s. His wife was named Mary and they had a daughter Elizabeth. A marriage record of Wilson Co TN shows a Wm. ADAMS & Mary LEWIS May 29 1821. My Wm. & Mary had their first child, Jacob, in 1823 and second child, Elizabeth, in 1831. I don’t know why there is an 8 year span between the first two unless some were born and died. Other children were Mary Ann (my 2nd great grandmother), David, Sarah and Joab. This ADAMS family had neighbors from TN in MO named RICE, POWELL and BRIDGES. Any info on this family will be appreciated.
