I am searching for a Benjamin Adams, born 18 Feb 1822 in possibly Baltimore or  Prince Georges, Maryland, United States. He died 25 Jun 1891.  I have been unable to determine his parents names or find any of his siblings. He apparently moved west  in or around the age of 18 for what reason I do not know.  He married in Indiana in 1841 to a woman named Sarah Cardwell from Kentucky. At some point they moved to Iowa and raised a family.  This part of his life is documented through census records.

My grandmother always claimed she was a descendant of John Quincy Adams. But without determining Benjamin's parents, I can neither prove or disprove this claim. Benjamin is my brickwall relative.  Adding to the challenge is the commonality of his name.  Benjamin had the following children:
Oliver H Adams , Son, About 1822, Iowa , 1 July 1931
Martha A Adams Bankston , Jul 1841, Indiana or Iowa , 8 Sep 1916,
     Decatur, ,Macon, Illinois, United States
William F Adams, Son, abt 1843, Iowa
Martin A Adams, Son, ABT 1845, Indiana, United States
John Hurley Adams , Son, 23 July 1848, Bloomfield, Clinton, Iowa or Davis or Davis Iowa , 24 Feb 1910, St Louis, St Louis, Missouri, United States
Oliver H Adams , Son, Mar 1850, Iowa
Eliza C Adams, Daughter, abt 1854, Iowa
Mary E. or A. Adams, Daughter, Jan 1857, Iowa

This person on the Geni site seems to be the same as your Benjamin Adamas and does list both father and mother.
