Dr John Wesley Adams
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 17, 1815
Virginia, USA
Death: unknown
Wakulla County
Florida, USA

The son of Reverend Wesley Adams 1775-1854 and Elizabeth "Betsy" Hughes.

He married Caroline Powell, September 20, 1837 in Jefferson County, Florida.

He moved from Jefferson County Florida to the Sopchoppy River with his wife, Caroline Powell Adams, where they had extensive landholdings and raised cotton. Their sloop "John Wesley" was used to carry the cotton to England until it was confiscated and sunk by the Union Army near Old Spanish Hole near St. Marks, Florida.

Their children were Iona Adams, Sarah Adams, Caroline Adams, Drusilla Adams and John Wesley Adams II. All of whom were born on the Sopchoppy River, Florida.

The actual internment site for Dr. John Wesley Adams has not been determined at this time. It is felt that he is buried on the Adams Plantation on the Sopchoppy River near Ashmore, Florida. Or in the "Lost" Adams Cemetery in Wakulla Gardens, Crawfordville, Florida.

This is my Great Great Grandfather. Please don't ask for transfer.
