Clement Adams, Sr
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 6, 1871, Saint Martin
Death: May 9, 1948
Orangeburg
Rockland County
New York, USA

Clement Adams was my maternal grandfather. He emigrated to the United States from Saint Martin/St. Maarten (French/Dutch Antilles) and married Sybil, his second wife, in 1929. He was a divorcÚ, old enough to be Sybil's father (24 years her senior); but they had 3 children together: my mother, Ruth, and my twin uncles, Christopher and Clement, Jr..

Grandpa Clem was fluent in English, French and probably Dutch (as all 3 languages are spoken in St. Martin/St. Maarten). However, he never spoke French around his children unless he didn't want them to understand what he was saying.

Clement Adams died 9 May 1948, in a New York hospital, one month after being hit by a taxi on his way home from work. He was 77 years old. My mother was 14 and her brothers were 13 at the time.
