Ok so these are the states in question he may have been born, or lived...

Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, illinois, Ohio. Born 1797 James Adams he married Leovica Milam, her first name spelled various ways. He died in supposedly 1865 Vernon cty.

I've been searching this day and night...

He had children Solomon Milam Adam..


William Adams, and at least 2 daughter's Martha I think can't recall other...

Any help would be awesome..

A Adams relative speculated a Robert Newton Adams ?

You have James Adams born 1979, is that in error.
1880 Census has Solomon born in Illinois abt 1832
Look at 1850 Census,James Adams and Levica,There first child Permely

born abt 1818 Virginia,Others Indiana,illinois Missouri.

I would surmise James and Levica married in Virginia then migrated west.

Which was a tough trip then.Likely used Ohio River.
