Jenks Seymour Adams was born in Carrollton, Alabama in 1873. He is the son of Robert Sanford Adams and Nancy Elizabeth Seymour and the grandson of Joshua Adams and Margaret Thaxton. The family was originally from Halifax County, Virginia and migrated through Tennessee and then down to Alabama to the Spring Hill Community in Pickens County in the 1830s.

Jenks moved to Richmond, Texas with his brothers James Joshua and Lewis Stone in 1893. He married Ida Voss and they lived in a small brick house on Morton Street where the current City Hall Annex building is located. In the early 20th century the brothers opened "The Three Brothers Saloon" on Calhoun St. at the corner of N. Second St., however their wives, who were members of the Baptist Church, made them get out of it after a few years. After he gave up the saloon Jenks went on to run a soft drink bottling company and other businesses. It was said he was the brother who made all the money and kept it.

Jenks passed away in 1959 and is buried along with his wife Ida, her sister Emma Flanagan, and his brothers in Morton Cemetery, Richmond, Texas.
