It is possible. My William Balis Adams was born 11 Apr 1880 or 1881, and married Josephine (also known as Josey) Waldroup in Graham Co, NC. on 29 May 1904. He died on 22 Jun 1957 in Gaston Co, NC. I am not sure where William Balis Adams was born. A 1920 census, conducted during the family's residence in Spartanburg Co, SC, lists Sarah as his mother, and estimates her birth year as being around 1852.
