Birth: unknown
Death: Dec. 14, 1892

Evening Star, Monday, June 20, 1864

Melissa Adams, killed, is the daughter of Edward C. Adams, huckster, Center Market. Mr. Adams and family have the general sympathy of the community from the fact that this is the third child he has lost by violent deaths within a year or two, and singularly too, as if in support of a popular superstition in each case the disaster occurred on a Friday. The first was that of a boy who accidentally shot himself on a gunning excursion; the next was that of another boy run over by a coach and killed; and the third was that of the daughter Melissa, who perished in the flames yesterday (The Arsenal Explosion, June 19, 1864).
