Biography:

Caleb Adams married Maria Rachel Hall on Oct. 18, 1870 in Hendricks County, Indiana. They were the parents of a son, Hickman, who was just a young child when his mother became a victim of the cholera epidemic that struck the Lizton community in August and September of 1873.

Caleb next married Elizabeth Almadora (Dora) Temple on Dec. 23, 1875 also in Hendricks County. They were the parents of Mary Leota (b. 1877), John Oscar (b. 1880) and Effa (b. 1883).

from the Republican for April 14, 1910:

Caleb Adams, brother of T. S. Adams, of Danville, died Thursday, at the home of his son, J. O. Adams, in North Salem, aged 59, after a lingering illness from cancer of the stomach. The funeral was Sunday. The Herald says of him: "He was a man of generous impulses. He had borne adversity bravely and he had enjoyed prosperity lightly. He had filled the various relations of life as son, husband, father, brother, friend, and filled them well. But he is gone. Another name is stricken from the lessening roll, and a lonely family will be left to attest how sorely they miss him. He was a man of sound sense and strong convictions, a candid outspoken manner and sun shiney disposition. He believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhod of man. He believed that the man who scatters flowers in the pathway of his fellowmen, who lets into the dark places of life the sunshine of human sympathy and human happiness, is following the footsteps of the Master."
