License was issued in Franklin Co. IN to John Adams and Sarah "Harmmon" on 22 Feb 1819. They were married 26 Feb 1819 by James Eagan, JP who made his return on May 3rd. Image is on FamilySearch.org.
Sarah is not seen in all databases, but she certainly does belong here. She remarried - the marriage was recorded in Putnam Co on 24 Oct 1835 - to Nathaniel P. Watter [his name was actually Walter as shown by a deed of the John L. Harmon heirs in 1837]. Nathaniel P. Walter signed that deed in her right - he could not have done so if had not been married to one of the daughters of John L. Harmon.
In 1840, Nathaniel Walter is in the census in Pike Twp, Marion Co IN.
The family apparently moved to Illinois soon after the 1840 census.

Nathaniel was a veteran of the Civil War, Co. E, 134th Illinois Infantry.
Nathaniel P. Walters had at least three children with Sarah (Harmon) Adams - possibly four, including a son who was less than five in 1840, but not living by 1850.. Following her death, he remarried to Mrs. Jane Erving in July 1869. They resided in Lee Co., Iowa and then Clark Co., Missouri by 1880.

In the Indiana marriage base, I found the following possible marriages for the Adams children of Sarah Harmon:
In 1850, an Ira B. Osborn was living in Hendricks Co IN - he was age 30, born in North Carolina, but his wife was listed as Lucinda E., age 22. There is a 2nd marriage for Ira B. to Lucinda Ray in Hendricks Co, 21 Aug 1846. Perhaps Sarah Jane Adams had died. There was a son, John M. age 6, who wasn't likely the son of Lucinda, and Lucetta J., age 1.
The only Robert Doughty I could find in Indiana in 1850, was a single man.
1820 Census: Wayne Co IN: 1m 16-25; 1f 16-25.
Letter of Administration were granted John B. Harmon who filed an Inventory for the estate of John Adams appraised by Chesley Wray & William Harmon on 4 Mar 1831. Chesley Wray married Jane (Harmon) Mitchell so was another brother-in-law, besides John B. & William Harmon. Sarah Adams, widow, was appointed guardian of minor children Lydia, Elizabeth, Sarah Jane, Patsy & John. One of debts paid on 26 May 1836 was to James Harmon.
Sarah HARMON and John ADAMS had the following children:
