James B. Adams was born Jul 29, 1861, in Montgomery County, Kentucky, to parents George Q. Adams (ca 1836-Bef 1900) and Mary W. McIntire (1840-Bef 1920), both born in Kentucky.

James worked on his family farm in Montgomery County until he was older and went to live with his Uncle Andrew McIntire in Nicholas County where he earned his degree in dentistry.
In 1891, James married Elizabeth Durbin, born in Kentucky (1869-1927). Elizabeth was a daughter of Napoleon Durbin (1815-?) and Cynthia Hill (1832-?), both born in Kentucky.
