Biography of George W. Adams

GEORGE W. ADAMS. One of the prominent and well-to-do agriculturists and stockraisers of Marion Township, Christian County, Missouri, was born in Letcher County, Kentucky, in 1841, to the union of George and Sarah (Frazier) Adams, both natives of Kentucky, it is thought. This worthy couple married in Letcher County, Kentucky, and made their home there until 1854, when they came, by wagon, to Taney, now Christian County, Missouri, being two months on the road. Locating on a small farm, they at once began making improvements, and as the years passed by became the owners of an excellent farm. For one year, in 1859 and 1860, Mr. Adams resided in Arkansas and then returned to Missouri, where his death occurred December 15, 1869. Mrs. Adams died eight days later. Mr. Adams has been twice married and reared a family by his first wife. Discover your family's story.
