Birth: Dec. 2, 1794
Rowan County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 19, 1876
Clinton County
Indiana, USA

Adam's first wife was Margaret Potts. They married in 1815 in Kentucky. He belonged to the "New Light Christian" faith and founded the Pleasant View Church in Boone Co. and the Antioch Church in Clinton Co., IN.

Pleasant View church history indicates the congregation began meeting in the Kern home. Adam then donated over 7 acres for the construction of the new church which until was completed in 1836. The Kerns were good friends with the Native American Indians in the area who would gather around outside the log building and listen during the services.
