Checking the microfilm as suggested by Ron is the best way to go right now. All of the names you listed are connected in some way. Mary A. Adams b abt 1812 TN is the widow of Stephen Adams b 17 Oct 1807 Anderson Co., SC d 1857 Memphis, TN.
John Cox Est is the Estate of John Cox b abt 1793 AL d 1860. So those slaves listed went to someone else that year. John B Cox b 1827 AL is a son of John Cox. The other Cox might be William Cox another son of John Cox. A daughter of John Cox named Mary Jane Cox b abt 1831 AL was married to Robert Adams who was a slave trader and a banker. She was also married to Lewis Jackson Dortch, a doctor, b abt 1817 NC and to Anderson Hopkins French Sr. b abt 1840 OH. They may have brought slaves into her family. Dortch was also married to a Nancy J. Adams. There is a definite Adams connection with these people in and around Monroe Co., MS. Checking the microfilm is a good suggestion.
