Birth: May 12, 1795
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 13, 1868

Daughter of Jacob Forsythe and Rachel Luellen.

She married Nathaniel Adams on December 27, 1818 in Campbell Co, KY.

Their children were Nancy Adams[married William T. Carnahan], Mary Jane Adams[married John F. Chenowith], Martha Ann Adams[married John D. Hickman], Madison K.Adams, Thomas Jefferson Adams[married Barilla Hickman] and James Franklin Adams[married Edith Wiley].

She died age 73 years 6 months 1 day.

Her son Madison Adams is buried in this cemetery. Also, her grandchildren Casper W. Adams[son of James Franklin & Edith Wiley Adams], William A. Adams and Martha A. Adams[children of her son Thomas J. Adams], and her great grandson Frankie Stewart.

The following information was given to me on 4 January 2008 by a descendant of Hannah:

"My great grandfather was James Franklin Adams and it was at the eastern boundary of his farm that he donated some of his property for the Union Chapel cemetery. He did go on to move to Hamilton county Nebraska in 1872 where he was a successful farmer one and 1/2 miles SW of the town of Marquette, NE. His father Nathaniel went with him and they are buried at Richland cemetery nearby.

Nathaniel Adams 23 Jun 1794 - 27 Mar 1884
Inscription on marker - "Oh he was good if ere a good man lived."
Death date was actually listed as 27 Mar 1884 Aged 89y 7m 4d

James Franklin Adams 06 Dec 1835 - 23 Apr 1913
Edieth Wiley Adams 11 Jan 1840 - 11 May 1933

I noticed under his wife's information you did not have his death date so I thought I would forward this information if it might be of worth to you. Thanks again for all the work you have done that has been of great worth to many of us who live too far away to visit Osceola as often as we would like."
