Adams family of Scheperville, Bollinger Co, MO

Surnames: Adams, Watson, Cope, McBride
I am looking for information on the Adams families of Scheperville, Bollinger Co, MO. My wife is descended from James Monroe Adams through his son James Henry Adams. Family records indicate that James Monroe was born in 1788 possibly in Richmond Co, VA and died in Scheperville, Scott Co, MO in 1874. Does anyone where he might be buried? The 1890 MO Veteran's Census (surviving records) has a one-line entry for James H. Adams, Scott Co., Sandywoods Twp., SD 2, ED 157. Entry has been struck out and the word Confederate has been written above - no unit is listed. Research suggests that he was a private in Co. K of the 1 MO INF, later the 1st & 4th Consolidated Missouri Infantry and that he was present at the surrender of Vicksburg. Family records indicate that James Henry was born Dec 1834 in KY and died Oct. 1890 in Scott Co., MO, place of burial is unknown. He married Jane Watson (birth & death unknown) possibly in Illinois. I have found the family living in Scott Co, MO in 1880, but it has been very difficult to find ant other records relating to this family. I know that birth state and dates as recorded in the census is often inaccurate but is about all that I have to go on at present. Based on the ages the children in the 1880 MO Census it is possible that the family lived in KY ca 1860, in ILL ca 1864 thru 1869, and in MO ca 1874 thru 1880. Sometime between 1874 and 1880, the family moved to Scott Co. and lived near Blodgett. If anyone knows anything about this familiy I would love to exchange information. Please post your information here for others to see. I can be contacted directly at lafever@lasal.net.
Thanks, Lee.
