Deborah married Isaac Adams in 1800 in Possibly New Hampshire, or Oxford County, Maine. Deborah and Isaac had one child. Eliphalet Adams was born on 28 January 1801 in Possibly New Hampshire.
Note: Deborah drowned in the Androscoggin River in Gilead, Oxford County, Maine. She was thirty-one years old when she died.
Note: On the 25th of April, Deborah with her infant, Deborah's sister, and a young girl named Sarah Bradley, twelve years of age, made a visit to Mr. Blodget's home, who lived on the opposite side of the river. They crossed over at what is called Lucas' landing. After their visit, they all returned to the boat, the old gentleman accompanying them. This landing was a few rods above a rock, on which several logs had stopped, a short distance from the shore. After they were seated in the boat, the old gentleman set them afloat. His son appeared to hesitate whether it was best to go above the rock, or to fall in between the rock and the shore. By this momentary delay, they were forced by the current against the rock and all were plunged into the river together. Deborah's sister escaped drowning by swimming for land. The others were sunk and were lost. There was constant and diligent search made for the bodies of the lost ones. A few days later their bodies rose to the surface. In this way, their bodies were all found.
And darling son, the same
Received arrest by death,
Was by the monster slain.
His subjects, man and maid;
They too, with them went down;
The king of terrors there displayed
His sceptre and his crown.
But Lydia dodged the dart,
Kind providence between;
Thus like a kinsman, true at heart,
Reclaimed her from the stream.
