Henry Adams, a pioneer of Green county, was born in Bedford Co., Penn., April 30, 1811. He was married to Sarah Mills, a native of the same county, born Dec. 13, 1813. After marriage they remained in Bedford county a few years, then removed to Ohio and settled in Coshocton county, where they lived until 1845. In that year they came to Wisconsin. He entered a farm of 160 acres in what is now the town of Mount Pleasant. He was a man of good education and ability and soon became prominent in public affairs. He was a member of the Territorial legislature. After the organization of the town, he filled offices of trust in the town. In 1866 he was elected to represent his district in the State Senate, and re-elected in 1867. He improved a good farm in Mount Pleasant and lived there until 1868, then sold and went to Hardin Co., Iowa. He afterwards returned to Green county and settled in Monroe, where he resided until the time of his death, July 13, 1871. Mrs. Adams lives in Nebraska. Ten children were born to them, eight of whom are now living.
