Gussie Lewis Adams was the firstborn child of Laborn and Maggie Adams. He was born 5 September 1904 in Susan Moore, Blount County, Alabama. He grew up in Blount County, Alabama.

When he was age 24, he married Annie Ruby Jones 18 August 1929 in Brooksville, Blount County, Alabama. She was the daughter of Andrew Jackson Jones and Lena Leona Garrett. They lived in Brooksville, Blount County, Alabama.

Gussie built a house on property given to them by Annie Ruby’s parents. Gussie worked at a saw mill and farmed. He cut the wood to build the house. They remained in Brooksville most of their lives. When Gussie was getting too old to farm, he went to work as a handyman for Mr. Griggs who owned the Arabian Motel in Arab. Mr Griggs was also a Chiropractor. Annie cleaned the motel. They moved to Arab in 1963 and eventually sold the farm in Brooksville. Later as the Motel traffic declined, Gussie went to work for Brindlee Mountain Telephone Company as a custodian. He worked there well into his 90s.

Gussie died 8 November 1995 in Arab, Marshall County, Alabama. Gussie and Annie are buried in Arab Memorial Cemetery, Marshall County, Alabama.
