NEVADA'S 4TH FIRST LADY 1883-1887


Emma Lee Adams was a native of Pennsylvania and a Texas resident when she married her husband, Jewett William Adams, on January 20, 1878. Jewett Adams drove cattle from Texas to Nevada in the 1870s where the two met. After her husband's term as Governor, Mrs. Adams remained in the news as one of the leaders of the anti-suffrage movement in Nevada in the early 1900s. The Adams had one child, a daughter they adopted. The family moved to San Francisco in 1915, where Mrs. Adams died on March 20, 1941.
