Transcribed from "History of McHenry County, Illinois-1885".

CASTOR ADAMS was born in Prussia, May 20, 1832, a son of Nicholas and Susanah Adams, natives of Germany, who came to America in 1841 and located in McHenry County, Ill., on the farm where our subject now lives, where his mother died in 1843, aged thirty-four years, and the father, June 26, 1879, aged eighty-one years.

Castor Adams attended school in his native country, but after coming to America was obliged to help his father on the farm and attended school only a month.

He was married Oct. 30, 1855, to Anna, daughter of John P. and Kate Huemann, natives of Germany. They have eight children- John, Emma, Peter, Nicholas, Joseph, Katie, William, and Mary.

He has served as Assessor two terms, road commissioner four terms, and School Director several years.
