From A Portrait and Biographical Record of Hendricks County (Chicago: A.W. Bowen & Co., 1895)--page 968

Solomon Adams was born in Nicholas County, Ky., January 19, 1799, but when a young man moved to Switzerland County, Ind., and married Miss Nancy Griffith, a daughter of Jackson and Catherine (Sigman) Griffith, and in 1828 came to Hendricks County and entered a farm four miles west of Danville, which he converted into a good home of eighty acres. Mr. Adams was a strong Republican and was three times elected township assessor and one time township trustee, and was, indeed, quite active in local political affairs. To Solomon Adams and wife were born the following children: John G., Mary, Catherine, William J., Thomas J., James M., Gabriel H., Joshua G., Hiram F., Caleb F. and Thaddeus S. The father of this family died June 9, 1863, and the mother July 2, of the same year. They were charter members of the Christian Church at Lizton, in which Mr. Adams also held the office of deacon, and both were known for the readiness in aiding the sick and distressed.
