Wife of Thomas Madden Adams. He was of Ontario, Canada and traveled by covered wagon to Kansas to marry her in 1863. She came from a family of Methodist abolitionists who settled in Baldwin City near Lawrence, Kansas. She was the first woman to preach in the Kansas Territory and the first female lecturer at Baker University. Baker was founded by her father Rev Abram Still MD and brother Andrew Taylor Still. Mary and Thomas had seven children. Their names were William, Edward, Alvah, Martha (aka Mattie), Frederick, Edwin and Elmer. Only three lives long enough to mary (Alvah, Frederick and Elmer) and only two were survived by children (Frederick and Elmer). The others died mainly of respiratory ailments, which is what drove their move from Franklin Co, Kansas to Los Angeles, California in the late 1870s. Mary was the daughter of Rev Abram Still, M.D. and Martha Poage Moore. Her brother was Andrew Taylor Still, founder of osteopathic medicine. Her father and several of her other brothers were also physicians. She was a devout Christian woman her entire life and her autobiography "In God We Trust" was published in 1893. A copy of her autobiography can be found online at the AT Still University: (opens to pdf).
