No, she's not the same one.

I suspect but can't prove that this Nancy was a daughter to
Mary in 1850 Union Twshp h/h 373
Adams, Mary 54 farmer NC
Adams, Robert 23 farmer Ar
Adams, Jacob 21 farmer Ar
Adams, Patrick 19 farmer Ar
Griffin, Barbar 18 Ill
Griffin, Wythe W 16 Ar
There is a female in the same household in 1840 that would have
been the right age of Nancy in 1840, per the 1850 census.
We know she's not the Nancy age 18 bn Ky with James,
nor the Nancy age 17 with Elizabeth, because they are still
home, while Absolom is alread married in 1850. These
mentioned are the only 3 Adams I find in Izard in 1850.

Did you write the wrong name when you wrote "Mary" above in
your statement that Bill Adams thinks Mary married Miles Langston?
I'll go with Nancy, as that name is your subject. I have a small
with this 18 year old Nancy being Miles' wife, but it is a small problem,
simply that here Nancy is listed as bn Ky while Miles' Nancy is bn Ar
acc'd to the 1860 census, but in 1870 she's 37 instead of 38, but that's
no problem, most censuses do fluctuate a year one way or the other,
but in 1870 she's listed as bn in Ky and their son is named James,
so, I would probably or could agree. But I don't really worry about the
Adams so take my opinion with a grain of salt. (most do, even on the
Langston line even)

Married a Nancy bn 1827/8 Langston not her maiden name.

married a Nancy bn 1832'ish Langston not her maiden name.

Now, these two men married the same Nancy Langston.
Ephraim Langston was husband #1
James Hall was husband #2
