Birth: unknown
County Londonderry, Northern Ireland
Death: Dec. 9, 1897
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA

Henry Hamilton Adams, known as Harry, was born in County Derry, Ireland, about 1842, to Robert and Martha Adams, and moved to the US as a small child. Shortly after arriving in America, his father died, and his mother kept the family going running a small store.

He served in the 56th NY Infantry during the Civil War. While his brothers all went into publishing, Harry was a local politician in Brooklyn and was elected County Treasurer for Kings County in fall, 1882 and began serving in August of 1883. Unfortunately, he angered the wrong people and was perhaps set up as the fall guy in a local scandal. He died in debt and disgrace, despite protesting his innocence for the rest of his life.

He was survived by his wife Lottie (Havens) Adams, and three daughters, Lottie, Marguerite, and Dorothy.
