Philipeany Adams was the youngest of four children born to Jacob Coble and Elizabeth Ware. Her parents were born and married in North Carolina. They later moved to Ohio and then to Indiana.
Note: Sources show Philipeany's name spelled many different ways. This spelling is the spelling on her headstone.
Philipeany married Perry Carpenter in 1835 in Morgan County, Indiana. They had five children: Lucretia, Richard, Elizabeth, Mary, and Jacob. All the children were born in Indiana except for Jacob, who was born in Missouri. Philipeany and Perry were divorced in 1847 and apparently Philipeany moved to Missouri with her parents in 1846, and Jacob was born. Perry stayed in Indiana and married Nancy Wilson. Philipeany moved to Muscatine, Iowa with her five children.
Philipeany married Asa Adams on 8 Mar 1849 in Muscatine, Iowa. Asa's first marriage was to Delia H Root in Michigan and they had two children: Harriett and Elias. Delia died in 1835 at the young age of 25 years. Asa moved his family to Muscatine, Iowa in 1838.
Philipeany and Asa had five children: Zachariah, Roxa, William, Cornelia, and Robert; all born in Muscatine.
Philipeany filed for divorce from Asa Adams in 1861 because he was "addicted to habitual drunkenness which wholly incapacitates him and makes it incumbent on [her] to provide all the necessaries of life" for herself and her children. Asa moved to Kansas and died of cholera in 1862/1863.
Philipeany also moved to Kansas. She worked as a housekeeper and also farmed with her sons. Richard Carpenter, her son from her fist marriage, had moved to Sarpy County, Nebraska and by 1880 Philipeany and some of her children made the move to Sarpy County. In 1885 she was living with her son Richard and family, who was a farmer in Sarpy County.
Philipeany died in 1895 in Sarpy County, Nebraska, at the age of 79 years.
