Possible places of birth are likely Drumcree and Fivemiletown. Where are you getting the information?

Matilda could not have been born in 1872 and married in 1883. Did the family emigrate? When? To where?

You can order a copy of the marriage to at least find out the names of the fathers:

Name: James Adams
Date of Registration: Oct-Nov-Dec 1883
Registration district: Lurgan
Volume: 1
Page Number: 943
FHL Film Number: 101254

You can write to the rector of the Tartaraghan parish church directly asking for a copy of the record.

Is this them in the US?

1920 US Census

Adams, James, Head, aged 83, married, immigrated 1909, alien, born Ireland, parents b. same,
Adams, Matilda, Wife, aged 48, married, immigrated 1909, born Ireland, parents b. same

Adams, James, aged 52, Head, Church of Ireland, b. Co. Armagh
Adams, Matilda, aged 30, Wife, b. Co. Armagh
Adams, Rachel, aged 16, Daughter
Adams, Sarah A., aged 14, Daughter
Adams, Matilda J., aged 12, Daughter
Adams, Wm. James, aged 10, Son
Adams, Eva, aged 8, Daughter
Adams, Joseph, aged 6, Son

Matilda must be older than she's letting on as they would not have married a 13 year old.

In the 1910 census, Matilda Jr., Rachel & Sarah are boarders in Palmer in a rooming house. No sign of the boys or the parents. Say they immigrated in 1906.

James and James Jr. arrived in 1910 aboard the Saxonia; Sr. is aged 50 and Jr. is aged 16. Last of Cloncore. Both born in Drumcree. Sr. gives his brother, Robert, of Breagh, Portadown as his next of kin at home. Bound for Three Rivers, Massachusetts. Matilda, Eva and Joseph's names were crossed off the list (ie, intended to travel, but did not board). Bound for Sr.'s daughter, Rachel Adams, in Three Rivers.

Altho' she did not travel, Matilda Sr. is noted as aged 38 (ie, born about 1871).

1911 Irish Census
Breagh, Co. Armagh

Adams, Robert, aged 71, Head, Church of Ireland, farmer, married, born Co. Armagh
Adams, Mary, aged 52
Adams, Sarah, aged 26
Adams, James, aged 24
Adams, Robert G., aged 22
Adams, Mercer, aged 19
Adams, Isaac, aged 16
Adams, Georgina, aged 10
Adams, Winne, aged 6

I believe the name was shortened from McAdams.
