You may be correct...Have a question, what happened to James Adams' dau (by his first wife), Olivia Jane Adams born about 1830-31 TN?

1850 Searcy Co, AR census:

21 133 136
Adams James 50 M W Farmer 1,000 Ten X
Adams Mary 35 F W Ten X
Adams Olive Jane 18 F W Ten X
Adams Mary F. 9 F W Ark X
Adams Sarah M. 7 F W Ark X
Adams James T. 4 M W Ark
Adams Lemuel B. 2 M W Ark
Turney Catharine 26 F W Ten (Mary's niece) (Joseph's dau) md John C Cooper

I believe she married Mordica Thornton about 1856. Mordica was first married to Amelia Westmoreland and they were in Wayne co TN in 1850. Mordica and wife Jane with two young boys are in Searcy Co in 1860. She isn't with him in 1870.
