INTRODUOTIOX". 



*' He who careth not from whence he came careth little whither he goeth." 

Genealogy is a subject of peculiar interest to those only 
of whom it treats, and is too often neglected even by those 
of kindred blood. At first sight, nothing seems less attrac- 
tive than a mere register of names and dates of past 
generations personally unknown to us. But if we reflect 
that each name here recorded is a memorial of a human 
heart that once lived and loved, that had its joys and sor- 
rows, its cares and burdens, its hopes and fears, conflicts 
and achievements, opportunities of life improved or wasted, 
it will illumine those generations with the light of a living 
reality. 

How important each of those dates to some circle of loving 
and confiding human hearts ! 

When human life approaches the boundary between the 
great w^orld of the seen and the far greater world of the 
unseen, among the few aspirations which then cluster around 
the soul is a strong desire that something may remain, some 
simple memento that such an individual once lived. 

To the living representatives of each family circle is com- 
mitted the sacred trust of perpetuating its memories. 

One of the best memorials of the " dear departed " is a genea- 
logical history distributed among the families of the living, 
which thus inspires them with a deeper interest in bequeath- 
ing to future generations a connected and complete family 
history. 

8 



4 INTRODUCTION. 

The recognition of existing relationships also creates and 
fosters a feeling of fraternal brotherhood among many who 
knew not before that any kindred blood existed between 
them, thus enlarging and purifying the circle of family feel- 
ing. Many families have kept some kind of a record of births 
and deaths; yet there is none in existence sufficiently definite 
or extensive whereby many of the present generation can 
know from which branch of this family they descended, or 
who were their ancestral connections. 

The object of this work is to make a correct record of one 
of the numerous branches of the Adams family in America, 
which dates back to 1685, and has already reached the seventh 
and eighth generations. In this book the branches of this 
family are so classified and arranged, that members may 
easily ascertain who were their ancestors, and what their 
connection to any other descendant. 

It has been the endeavor of the compiler to give a correct 
record of all the members of this family, as far as possible to 
obtain the necessary data ; and it is believed that a very 
tolerable degree of accuracy has been attained. 

In some instances, a disagreement in dates has been found 
to exist between the records of different individuals and 
towns, and those upon monuments in cemeteries. 

In the year 1752, the commencement of the year was 
changed from March 25 to Jan. 1. 

Public records made within twenty or thirty years of that 
time often omit to state whether the date was old or new 
style; consequently, dates occurring about that time may be 
given a year earlier or later than they were in reality. 

But although accuracy in dates is desirable, yet it is not 
deemed so essential as a correct statement of naoaes, family 
connection, generation, birthplace, residence, &c. 

It has been found impossible to obtain the history of a few 
branches of this family, although it has been carefully 
sought. 



INTRODUCTION. O 

But, although the record is incomplete in some directions, 
it may lead at some future period to a more perfect history 
of all subdivisions of this family. 

Letters of inquiry have very generally been responded to 
promptly ; but in other cases no reply whatever has been 
elicited. 

The compiler is under obligations to many of the friends for 
encouragement and substantial assistance; and all such will 
please accept his thanks. Mr. Ward Adams of Waldoboro', 
Me., and Mrs. Amanda Thompson of Union, Me. (not to mention 
others), have furnished extensive returns. It is hoped that 
a due amount of indulgence will be exercised on account of 
any errors or omissions which may have occurred, when the 
friends consider what has been accomplished, and the variety 
of detail and dates here presented. 

It has been the compiler's endeavor to serve all impartially ; 
and the record is in accordance to the interest parties have 
taken, and the extent of information they have furnished. 

In the commencement of this genealogical research, the 
publication of it in book-form was not anticipated, and minute 
details were not at first sought. 

The line of descent upon the female side has not in all 
cases been followed out, particularly so in regard to the 
second generation. 

But little reference has been made to the private history 
of individuals, as but little is known to the compiler; and 
many of the incidents given are such as the friends have 
furnished, though in some cases they have been condensed. 

The coat of arms which is placed upon the title-page of this 
book was obtained by Rev. James Adams ^ (son of James ^) 
from an English gentleman who investigated the subject by 
his request, and gave it as belonging to this family. A refer- 
ence to it maybe found in an English work, entitled "Burke's 
Peerage." It is given as a family memento, and a fine 

specimen of English heraldry with a noble motto.

6 INTRODUCTION. 

To the relatives and friends here recorded, this little volume 
is now committed. As it shall better acquaint them with 
their ancestors and kindred, so may it inspire them with 
greater regard for parentage, and the perpetuation of family 
memories among the living. With Cowper we may say, — 

" My boast is not that I deduce my birth 
From loins enthroned, and rulers of the earth ; 
But higher far my proud pretensions rise, — 
The son of parents passed into the skies." 

Franklin, Mass., 1874.

EXPLANATIONS. 



The descendants are arranged by families in successive 
generations, in the numerical order of descent; the line of 
descent being given at the top of each page. 

A general enumeration is made by figures placed at the 
left of descendants' names j each being numbered in the order 
of birth. 

The individual number of parent is placed at the head of 
their family record. By means of these numbers, connections 
may be readily traced from one generation to another. 

The names of persons whom members have married are 
placed next under their own names, and marked m, at the 
left of each name. Dates of births and deaths are placed to 
the right of names, the latter always to the extreme right. 

Birthplaces are often given in parenthesis upon the line 
below the individual name. 

The figures attached to a name denote the generation to 
which the person belongs; thus, John ^ is the first generation, 
John 2^ is the second; and so on. 

Abbreviations used are as follows, — 

6., born ; c?., died ; i>., deceased, date unknown; m., married ; 
r., residence ; dau., daughter. 

A family index is given at the end of the book.

GENEALOGY 



OF 



JOHN AMIS AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



John Adams, the ancestor of the families herein recorded, 
was born in Crediton, Devonshire, Eng., in the year 1685. 
The exact date he lauded in America is not known ; but 
evidently it was soon after the year 1700, for he was married 
in 1713. He was one of the first settlers in that part of 
Wrentham which is now known as South Franklin. Being a 
weaver by trade, he at first pursued that caUing, but subse- 
quentl}^ purchased knd for a farm, and lived upon it during 
the remainder of his life. It has been occupied by his 
descendants ever since his decease, and is now the home of 
Mr. Peter Adams. What remained of the old house was 
demolished by '^ the great blow of 1815." 

The circumstances of his departure from the mother-coun- 
try early in life are illustrative of her tyranny, and of the 
rising spirit of liberty among her sons. He was seized by a 
''press-gang" (unknown to his friends), and forced to serve 
as cabin-boy on board of a ship-of-war. When the ship came 
into the port of Salem, the crew were given a brief furlough. 
Here young Adams struck for liberty by refusing to return 
to involuntary servitude. 

The ship sailed on to Boston, where a reward was offered 
for his capture and return ; they intending to shoot him at 
the yard-arm. In his wanderings he came into the present 
town of Medfield,and was there seized, mounted upon ahorse 

9 



10 GENEALOGY OF JOHN ADAMS 

and started for Boston to be surrendered for the paltry reward. 
But he managed to elude their grasp, and, after a hair-breadth 
escape from recapture, found refuge in Wrentham, now 
Franklin. 

It was the culmination of the same spirit of resistance to 
British oppression which afterwards led to the Declaration 
of American Independence ; and it is not becoming in those 
whose fathers rose in rebelHon to gain political freedom, to 
asperse his name or memory for maintaining his right to per- 
sonal liberty. The freedom which he thus achieved for him- 
self, numbers of his descendants afterwards fought to gain for 
their country. All honor to his memory for such an early' 
vindication of his manhood! " Resistance to tyranny is obe- 
dience to God." 

A portion of an old letter from his brother Peter is still in 
existence, and is copied as a matter of history, as well as 
a reminiscence of " ye olden time." 

London, April y^ 25th, 1730. 

LovEiNG Brother, — This day I received a letter from our 
Cousin Samuel Adams and the letter you sent them. I never 
knew you was living till about 10 Days agoe and sent down 
for your letter. I have been married in London this Twelfth 
year and have seen many voyages to New England a late 
years. About fourten years agoe I put your name in the 
News at Boston to hear of you but not hearing of you 
then, I gave you over for Dead. My name was allways in y^ 
news, I being Master of a vessel, so that if you had but 
minded the news you might have thought of me. If this 
comes to your hand I hope you will lett me hear from you. 
Our Sister is Edward Mounie's widow of four Children. 
Joseph is Dead many years agoe, and our Uncle Nath^^ and 
Roger and Cousin James. There is liveing besides our sister 
and 4 Children, Cousin Samuel and Seven Children, and Aunt 
Adams and three [The rest of the p^ige is missing: the other 
side is as follows] : — ; 



A\D HIS DESCENDANTS. 11 

If you should receive this letter, I would have you mind 
the directions I have Wrote, and the first of your neighbours 
that Goes to Boston give it to them and Desire them to goe to 
the Coffee house and there are bags that belong to the Ships 
that are coming to London, and it will come as safe as If you 
bad brought it yourself If you should Goe to Boston your- 
self I would have you call on my Landlady M'■^ Hannah 
Demings at the South End. 

The letter closes abruptly, with no signature. It is written 
in a business-hand, and is presumed to be very good for those 
days. It was apparently written upon a half sheet of foolscap ; 
and the last quarter of it is gone. Peter afterward married Mrs. 
Demings, and settled in Beaufort, N.C. The parental names 
are not known, or whether they were living when he (John) 
was forced to leave his native land. 

Many interesting facts pertaining to his history, which 
might have been gathered from living lips a few years ago, 
are now lost. 

A low stone marks the place of his burial in Franklin Ceme- 
tery, bearing the following inscription : — 

In Memory of 3Ir. John Adams, 

who departed this life May y« 10^'\ 1754, 

in y^ 69*^ year of his age. 

The following is a copy of his Will : —

No other record of marriages in the family can be found ; 
but it is known that two of the daughters were married to a 
Howard and a Cook, but their names or residences are un- 
known. All the others, but Elisabeth, lived in Franklin, then 
Wrentham. John was known by the prefix of '^ Ensign," 
which appears upon his gravestone, and also upon the town 
records, and was doubtless a military title. His house stood 
a few rods west of the present railroad crossing on Union 
Street. 

His farm extended to the centre of the town, and embraced 
the present Common, which he conveyed to the town for

church and public uses about the year 1788. AccorJmg to 
town records, the consideration for the whole was about sev- 
enty-five dollars of our present currency. He died at the 
age of seventy-eight years. It is not known from what family 
his wife originated, as their marriage does not appear upon 
the Wrentham Town Records. 

Peter succeeded to the ancestral estate. But little is 
known of the personal characteristics of these brothers, ex- 
cept that they were industrious, good citizens, and shared in 
the public duties of the town. Peter lived to the age of 
eighty years. 

'Jhe Hon. Jabez Fisher, the husband of Mary Adams, was 
extensively known, and highly respected. He represented 
the town for many years in the General Court of Massachu- 
setts, and held other public offices. Of her it was said by a 
contemporary, that " she was worthy to be a queen." Theron 
Metcalf, one of the revisers of the State Laws, and for many 
years a judge of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, was a 
grandson of Hannah Adams. 

The Fisher and Metcalf descendants are numerous ; but 
the task of tracing them for the present work has not been 
undertaken. 

" The patriarclis of the race have gone 
To the repubhc of the dead : 
Soon we shall follow, one by one, 
Our bodies 'neath the turf be laid ; 
But, horn in spirit, we shall rise. 
To higher life beyond the skies."

Timothy had four children ; but their names and ages are 
unknown. Doubtless they all died young, as his gravestone 
bears his own name, " Jemima his wife, and four children." 
He^died at the age of thirty-eight years. Thaddeus pur- 
chased the lands comprising the present town farm, which he 
cleared and improved, erected buildings, and made it his home 
for life. 

Being a blacksmith, he taught each of his sons the same 
trade, and set them an example of honest industry. He lived 
to the age of eighty-two years. 

John formerly lived in Franklin, where all his children (ex- 
cept the youngest) were born. He removed to Walpole, ' 
N.H., about 1800, and died there, aged eighty-eight years. 



THIRD GENERATION. 17 

Nathaniel was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and took 
an active part in the battle of Bunker Hill. 

The writer well remembers of hearing him relate some of 
the incidents of the battle. Said he, " We were in an awful 
condition to die ; for our hearts were full of malice. All we 
thought of or cared for was to kill the cursed British.'^ 

He stated they took as good aim every time they fired as 
they would to shoot a partridge. 

He held a captain's commission either during or after the 
war, and was known by the title of " Captain " ever after. 
He was afterwards a trader, and for many years kept store, 
and manufactured straw goods, at the corner near the ceme- 
tery. 

He removed to Providence, R.I. , about 1815, and died there 
at the age of eighty-three, respected and beloved by all who 
knew him. 

William lived and died upon his father's estate. He was 
noted for his ready wit and outspoken frankness. The recital 
of a few anecdotes concerning him may not be inappropriate. 
Upon one occasion, Dr. Emmons, being very indignant because 
the choir sang some very quick music, accompanied with the 
bass-viol or violin (which he abhorred, as connected with 
dancing), after he had entered the church to conduct the 
Sunday-afternoon services, left the church abruptly, and went 
home. 

The next morning, Mr. Adams called at the doctor's, early, 
upon an errand, and was summoned to his study. Inquiring 
the cause, the doctor said he wished to know how people felt 
about his leaving them without any afternoon service. He 
replied, he could not speak for others, but could tell him how 
he felt, if he desired to know. Upon being assured that he 
would like to hear his opinion, he said, " I thought you acted 
like a d — d old fool, I did: well, I didy Notwithstanding his 
bluntness, the doctor valued his opinions highly, and often 
consulted him about his material interests.

18 THIRD GENERATION. 

During the last sickness of Mr. Adams, and only a few days 
before his death, Dr. Emmons visited him, and, while there, 
inquired of him if he had made his peace with God. At 
once he replied, " God and I never had any trouble." 

Deacon Blake once called upon him during the ravages of 
the canker-worms upon his orchard. He remarked to the 
deacon, that he never could see what the ^Ha^mal critters'^^ were 
made for. ^' Oh," said the deacon, " they are God's army : he 
sends them to perform his will." — " Then," said Mr. Adams, 
" I'd thank him not to parade his army in my orchard." 

Upon another occasion, a horse-thief was to be examined 
before James Adams, Esq. Quite a crowd was present; and, 
some little time having passed after the appointed hour, the 
culprit expressed his wonder that the justice was so tardy. 
Uncle Bill (as he was familiarly called) sang out in his sharp, 
peculiar voice, " You needn't worry : your damnation don't 
slumber." 

Rachael Adams, who married Asa Fisher, lived near the 
present railroad depot. The house was used subsequently 
for a hotel, and was finally burned about 1867. She lived to 
be seventy-two years old.

Jemima and Joel resided in Union, Me. Joel was one of 
the first settlers in Stirlington district, having purchased land 
there in the year 1777. According to Sibley's History of 
Union, Me., Capt. Joel Adams was a Revolutionary soldier 
between three and four years, and was paid off in Continental 
money. In coming home through Hartford, he bought a pair 
of buckskin breeches with it, paying fifty-seven dollars, and 
three dollars of the same money for a dinner. His wedding 
was the first in the town, and took place in 1781. The cere-

mony being over, and the company seated, the mother of the 
bride observed, '^ Mr. Justice, you have but half done your 
work." — ^^ Why not ? " said he. " Why, you have not pro- 
nounced them man and wife." With some confusion, he asked 
them to rise again ; and the ceremony was satisfactorily con- 
cluded. Peter was also a Revolutionary soldier. He was 
stationed in Boston, and died of a fever. James lived upon 
the homestead, and was highly esteemed both in public and 
private life. He was deacon of the church, and justice of the 
peace, for many years.

The children of Thaddeus (true to their ancestral nature) 
were all married, and had children. Lucinda Gillmore lived 
opposite the old schoolhouse on the Mount (so called). She 
had but one child ; and her descent is now extinct. Abigail 
Tha3^er lived in Wrentham, near Sheldonville. The family 
removed, in 1822, to Hampden, Me. Thaddeus, jun., settled 
in Brewer, Me., where he practised his trade, that of a black- 
smith. 

Timothy settled at first in Bucksport, but subsequently 
removed to Hampden. He was a shipsmith, and bequeathed 
that vocation to his surviving sons. 

Alpheus was the " home boy," and undertook the care and 
maintenance of his parents during life. By great energy 
and perseverance, combined with a good trade, he managed 



FOURTH GENERATION. 23 

to payoff quite an encumbrance on the farm, support two fam- 
ilies, rear six children, and emerge from it all free from debt. 
In 1836 he sold the farm (then in a high state of cultivation) 
to the town, and removed to Nashua, N.H., where his oldest 
son then resided. After remaining there about ten years, he 
returned to Franklin, and built him a house near the corner 
of Pleasant and Main Streets. 

At the age of sixty-six, he passed to the unseen life, of 
quick consumption, lamented by a large circle of friends. 
He was noted for industry, frugality, strict integrity, and 
loyalty to his convictions of truth. 

In religion he was ^' Orthodox," having been trained, from' 
early life, under the teachings of Dr. Emmons. 

The following extracts from an obituary notice of Mrs. A. P. 
Adams, written by her favorite pastor (Rev. Mr. Pel ton), and^ 
printed in '^ The Congregationalist," are inserted as a faithful] 
record of her history : — 

*^ Died in Franklin, Mrs. Achsa P. Adams, of pleuro- 
pneumonia. Another valuable life is closed. The four- 
score years of this ^ elect lady' formed a life of more than 
ordinary interest. Not behind any, perhaps, as a stirring, 
prudent housewife, or faithful Christian mother, in consistent 
devotion to truth and righteousness for fifty-eight years in 
the church she was conspicuous. Her faith was that which 
works by love. She was one of those who urged, and finally 
established, the sabbath school, almost under the protest of Dr. 
Emmons, more than fifty years ago. When the infirmities of 
age prevented her presence in the public assembly, or deaf- 
ness hindered such enjoyment, it was her delight to meet the 
sisters at her room. She was among the foremost in active 
benevolence, working with her own hands more than most for 
the needy. After the death of her husband, sixteen years 
feince, in the retirement of home with her children, she still 
ondeavored to do what she could for others. There she might 



24 FOURTH GENERATION. 

be seen, now quietly tripping about the house and yard, 
caring for the flowers about the door, or the plants in the 
window ; now in her room, neat and tidy, with Bible, Watts, 
religious books, and papers ; now with needles, patchwork, or 
garments for the destitute, — a Dorcas truly, to the last. 
There was no useless part of her long life."

The following biographical notice was published in '' The 
Live Stock Journal," in March, 1872: — 

ALPHEUS ALDRICH. 

*'Tt is pleasant to review the life of a good man. Mr. Aldrich, 
who has lately passed away at the ripe age of seventy years, 
settled in the town of Collins, Erie County, N.Y., in 1841, 
while yet mostly a wilderness. His history is peculiarly inter- 
esting as showing the progress a man may make, who in 
earnest devotes himself to farming even late in life. It 
is often a mooted question whether farming pure and 
simple brings its reward. Many suppose it compares very 
unfavorably with thrift in trade. The pioneer who grapples 
with heavy-timbered land would seem to have a difficult task 



^y 



36 FIFTH GENERATION. 

compared to the settler on the rich prairie, where, if he 
simply plough and build, he may possess at once a farm with 
all the advantages of long cultivation. Mr. Aldrich was a 
machinist in the city of Boston till thirty-seven years old, and 
had no acquaintance with farming till he moved upon his 
wilderness farm. He had only money enough to buy out a 
settler's claim on fifty acres with nothing paid upon the land. 
Here at middle age, and penniless, he began a new and 
untried enterprise and hewed his way to competence. Hav- 
ing paid for his first fifty acres, he purchased more, and finally 
cleared a hundred and fifty acres out of the wilderness ; and 
one hundred acres were covered with small cradle-knolls, which 
had to be ploughed and scraped into the hollows, so as to make 
an even surface. This was a labor little less than the original 
clearing. He reared and educated a family of four children. 
At the time of his 'decease he owned two hundred and fifty 
acres of land, with good improvements, and especially one of 
tlie largest and best constructed barns in the town, with fifty 
cows and other stock. 

''He conducted all his farm operations with more than the 
usual intelligence and prudence. He was not content to 
follow old routitie where a better had been devised. For 
many years he economized his winter fodder by the use of 
the large power straw cutter, and mixing the different quali- 
ties of fodder, so as to save all. He eagerly sought all 
improved methods, and was a liberal patron of the agricul- 
tural press. Yet, with all these indiscretions, he left a prop- 
erty worth twenty thousand dollars. Dairying was his 
speciality; and the product of his cows in butter, cheese, and 
the pork made from the refuse milk or whey, brought all his 
income. 

'' How many country merchants can show a better result at 
the end ? "

The following lines, written by Simeon P. Adams soon after 
leaving the parental roof, are so expressive of sentiments 
which will find a response in many hearts, that they are here 
recorded for preservation, although incomplete, as the last 
two verses cannot be given. No copy of the lines exists; and 
these are given from memory : — 



FIFTH GENERATION^. 39 

" I love my old home : 'tis the place of my birth, 
The spot in my memory most hallowed on earth ; 
For there was I cradled and fondly caressed, 
And tenderly reared on a kind mother's breast. 

" I love my old home ; for the loved ones are there, 
Who remember me oft in the still hour of prayer, 
And, though crooked and wayward the path I have trod, 
Plead for me the friendship and favor of God. 

" I love my old home ; for it brings to ray heart 
The charms of true friendship un mingled with art : 
There are parents and brothers and sister to greet, 
And kindred affections in all that I meet."

52 FIFTH GENERATION. 

John Q. Adams was a soldier in the late war, and served 
from August, 1862, to June, 1865. He was in the battle of 
Drury Bluff, where his regiment (the Eighth Maine Volunteer 
Infantry) lost ninety-six in killed^ wounded, and missing. He 
was also present at the fighting near Bermuda Hundred, 
Hatcher's Farms, and afterwards at Coal Harbor, where the 
regiment lost heavily. At the Point of Rocks the regiment 
took the enemy^s works, and captured fifty-four prisoners. 
Through all these and other conflicts he was not wounded, 
although balls passed through his clothes ; and he had many 
narrow escapes. Besides suffering the inevitable hardships 
of a soldier's life, he was several times sick and in the hospital, 
but at last returned home in safety. 

Israel S. Adams served the government as captain of 
schooner " Dr. Rodgers," engaged in transporting forage, <fec., 
for the army. He sailed from Lincolnville in April, 1862, 
for Fortress Monroe, and was ordered to Yorktown^ and was 
present when McClellan took that place. He was at Fortress 
Monroe when the famous battle occurred between the rebel 
ram ''Merrimack" and the little '' Monitor." After McClellan's 
retreat, while at Harrison's Landing with a fleet of some four 
hundred vessels, the rebels opened fire from the opposite side 
of the river with three batteries, doing much damage. The 
maintop-mast of ^' The Dr. Rodgers " was shot oifj and the 
vessel was hit in various places.

Charles R. Adams enlisted in the Thirty-third Regiment 
Massachusetts Infantry, under Col. Maggi in May, 1862. It. 
was under the call of Gov. Andrew for troops after the retreat 
of Gen. Banks from Virginia. He served with the regiment 
in Virginia until December, when his company was trans- 
ferred to the Forty-first, under Col. Chickering. The regi- 
ment embarked in January, 1863, in the Banks Expedition, 
for Louisiana, where they arrived after a perilous sea-voyage, 
and at once entered the campaign, following the rebels three 
hundred miles into the interior, to Opelousas, La. Here the 
regiment were mounted and equipped as the Third Massachu- 
setts Cavalry. 

After serving in the Nineteenth Army Corps at various 
points in that section of the Union, the regiment was sent 
North in June, 1864, and served in the memorable campaign 
of Sheridan in the Valley of the Shenandoah, on his way to 
join Gen. Grant. During the first battle, which was at Berry- 
ville, near Winchester, Va., Sept. 19, young Adams was 
killed. The officer in command of his company said of him, 
" He was a good soldier, and fell with his face to the enemy,

Henry W. Thayer was a graduate of Brown University, 
Providence, R.I. Soon after leaving college, he raised a 
company to serve in the war of the rebellion, and was chosen 
first lieutenant, but soon after was promoted to captain. 
While stationed at Port Hudson, his company (Company F), 
with four others of the Fourth New-York Cavalry, were cap- 
tured ; and he was the only man who escaped, which fact was 
due to his superior vigilance.

he took the yellow-fever ; and died universally respected.

SIXTH GENERATION. 73 

Cyrus Wesley and Albert A. Adams enlisted in the Ninth 
Regiment Maine Volunteers, in September, 1861. They pro- 
ceeded at once with the regiment to Washington, and were 
ordered to Annapolis, Md., where they embarked for Port 
Royal, S.C. They were out in a terrible gale, in which the 
whole fleet came near being lost. They were present at the 
capture of Port Royal by Commodore Dupont, and were 
stationed at Hilton Head until the last of January, when 
they were ordered to Fernandina, Fla. In April, Wesley was 
taken prisoner; suffered, in three prisons, of starvation and 
sickness, until October, when he was exchanged, and taken 
to Washington, D.C., where he died Oct. 31, 1862. 

The details of his terrible experiences are too sickening for 
recital. Albert remained with his regiment, fighting, and 
enduring hardships. In January, 1863, they returned to 
Hilton Head, and were ordered to take Morris Island, under 
Gen. Strong. 

Here they suffered every thing that mortals could, until 
they re-enlisted, and were sent home for thirty days. Next 
they were sent to Virginia, under Gen. Butler, and took part 
'in the battle of Bermuda Hundreds. In May, 1864, they 
embarked for West Point, and from there to White House, 
where they joined the Eighteenth Army Corps, and marched 
to Petersburg, sharing in its battles and exposures until the 
close of the war. He was in twenty-eight battles and 
skirmishes.

W. M. E. Adams entered the service of the United States 
as a soldier soon after the first battle of Bull Run, and served 
thirty-seven months in the Army of the Potomac, during the 
years of 18G2, 1863,and 1864. For the first year and a half he 
was in the ranks, but afterwards served as orderly to various 
generals. During the whole time, he was always at the front, 
and never in the hospital, being neither sick nor wounded ; 
yet he sufiered, in common with his comrades, some of the 
greatest perils and hardships of the war. One incident will 
serve as an example r one day early in January, his company 
(Company I, Massachusetts Eighteenth) forded a river, where 
the water was nearly up to the arm-pits, with a swift current, 
and the weather so cold, that the margin of the stream was 
fringed with ice, and their clothes froze stiff immediately upon 
their emerging from the water. They then marched a long 
distance, recrossed the same stream by another ford, and 
camped over night upon the frozen ground, without any fires, 
or change of clothing. He was in numerous skirmishes, and 
took part in the following battles : — 

Hanover Court House, Seven Days Peninsula, Yorktown, 
Second Bull Run, Antietam, Frederi(;ksburg, Chancellorsville, 
Upperville, Emmetsburg, Gettysburg, Culpeper Court House, 
Rappahannock Station, Bristol Station, Mine Run, Wilderness, 
Laurel Hill, Spottsylvania Court House, Old Church, Coal 
Harbor, North Anna, Petersburg. For all this important ser- 
vice he only received one hundred dollars bounty in addition 
to the regular pay. He was subsequently chosen captain of 
a military company in Brattleborough, Vt. 

George W. Adams enlisted as a soldier in the winter of 
1864. He was in the battle of the Wilderness, and marched 
beside Charles Wilson of Franklin, who was the first man 
killed in Grant's campaign in Virginia. At the battle of 
Laurel Hill he was sunstruck, but in a day or two got better, 
and rejoined his regiment. But four days afterwards,, at the 
battle of North Anna, he was again prostrated by sunstroke, 



SIXTH GENERATION. 79 

which paralyzed both legs. After long delay, he was sent to 
Alexandria, and afterwards to Boston. After several months, 
lie was discharged, but never fully recovered ; and it was 
undoubtedly the cause of his death.

John F. Fletcher enlisted in October, 1862, in the Twenty- 
Sixth Maine Regiment, Maine Infantry, Company G-, in which 
he served as corporal. During the first battle in which the 
regiment took part, he was shot through the head, and died 
almost instantly. 

His captain said of him, "That he wanted to be at the front 
during the heat of the battle, although he might have re- 
mained in the rear ; and that his daring and bravery was a 
source of wonder and encouragement to his comrades."

John Q. Adams, 2d (who is a sea-captain), experienced a 
very narrow escape from death by shipwreck in March and 
April, 1872. The schooner "Ada Ames," Capt. Adams, sailed 
from Eockland, Me., for Washington, D.C., laden with granite. 
They were not heard from for forty-four days, when she re- 
turned in safety. The schooner battled with a succession of 
gales ; but, with good management, she withstood them, 
though the crew would have abandoned her if an opportunity 
had presented itself. The owners and underwriters of the 
vessel and cargo had given them up as lost ; and the friends 
of those on board abandoned all hope, except a possible one, 
that the crew might have been rescued, and carried to some 
distant port. Their safe arrival caused much rejoicing.
