Samuel Adams
Birth: Jun. 5, 1805
Death: Feb. 27, 1850

Arkansas Governor. Born in Halifax County, Virginia, he educated himself, moved to Arkansas in 1835 and soon became involved in local politics. A Democrat, he served twice in the Arkansas State Senate from 1840 and was President of that body during his second term. When Governor Archibald Yell resigned to run for Congress on April 29, 1844, Adams stepped in as Acting Governor and held that office until November 5 of that year. During that time he continued Yell's policies and left a budget surplus. In 1846 he was elected State Treasurer and kept that position for the rest of his life. He was the stepfather of Civil War Confederate General James Fleming Fagan, and in the Civil War period Adams's likeness appeared on Arkansas $10 treasury notes. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
