Birth: Nov. 23, 1834
Death: Mar. 1, 1877

Rebecca Bothell Adams was born in Indiana County, PA, the daughter of Campbell and Susanna Row Bothell, the 7th of 11 children. Her older siblings were: Sophia, Elizabeth, Adam Row, David Park, Susannah, and George; younger siblings were: James Campbell, Daniel, Robert Nickson, and William Anthony. She married James Nesbitt Adams (son of Samuel and Nancy Nesbit Adams) on Oct. 20, 1864. Their children were: Edwin Campbell, George Sherron, James Cozad, Milton Parks, Lorenzo Row, and Susan Charlotte. She died of inflammation of the bowels (probably appendicitis) when her youngest child Susan was 20 months old. Rebecca and her husband had moved from Pennsylvania to Rock Island County, IL with their exended family shortly after their marriage. All of their children were born in Illinois. Her daughter Susan Adams Schuessler said was sorry she was too young when her mother died to remember her, having been told she was a kind and loving wife and mother. Upon her sudden and untimely death, the family burial plot was purchased by Rebecca's father, Campbell Bothell. Her husband married Emma Davis Abbott 17 months after her death.
