Pioneer Departed—Alpheus Adams Obituary

Alpheus Adams obituary, The Moon, 8 Apr 1910.

This obituary for Alpheus Adams was found during our recent epic road trip that included a visit to the North Dakota State Archives in Bismarck, North Dakota. It is a little difficult to read as it was scanned from microfiche.

It was published on the front page of the Hannah, Cavalier County, North Dakota, newspaper The Moon, on 8 Apr 1910.

The identification of W.E. Adams and George Adams as his half-brothers was a very important lead in confirming the Adams lineage back through his grandfather Reverend Ezra Adams to the Robert Adams line that immigrated from Essex, England, to Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, in about 1635. This was further confirmed with genetic genealogy research.

Alpheus James Adams (1845-1910) is 3rd great-grandfather of MKS in the Watne branch.

Robert Adams (1602-1682) is 10th great-grandfather of MKS in the Watne branch.
