Hope you're still checking in. John Adams married Eleanor Taylor, daughter of James Taylor of Patrick County, VA. Eleanor died and John remarried.

24.       1831. 16 and 17 December 1831. The Patrick County, VA, Court Order Book contains this entry: Administration of the estate of John Adams Jr. decd. is granted to Joshua Adams and thereupon he took the oath of an Administrator and entered into and acknowledged bond with Granl. Penn & J. Taylor his securities in the sum of five hundred dollars conditioned according to law.” [Note: Here, J. Taylor is Jefferson Taylor. And the deceased is the former husband of Eleanor Taylor, Jefferson’s aunt and his mother-in-law, as he married Mary Adams, daughter of John and Eleanor. Following the death of Jefferson Taylor,about 1841, Mary married William DeHart of Patrick County.”] Hope this is helpful.
