Walter James Adams and Mabel Retta Zufall were married in Tippecanoe county, IN on 06 Nov 1907. They were the parents of two children; James Walter Adams Sr., and Leona Belle Adams Furguson.

Son James Sr died on 12 Sept 2001. His burial location is presently unknown. His obituary provides information about his family's history so I included it here:
