Albert Sidney Adams was the oldest of ten children born to Singleton & Cornelia (Dunn) Adams. The family lived in the vicinity of Tulip, Dallas Co., Arkansas. Albert left Arkansas as a young man after a young lady he had courted married someone else. He moved to north Texas where his uncles Jesse & Plez lived. He boarded with Joseph & Amanda Phillips, later marrying their daughter, Emma on May 31, 1896. They were married for 70 years and had ten children: Maggie Viola, Annie Mae, Alton Richard, Opal Gladys, Garland Franklin, Selma Pearl, Fred D., Lola Jewel & Mildren. The first born, a baby boy lived only a short time.
Papa, as his children and grandchildren called him, lost three fingers on his right hand in a cotton gin accident as a young man. He was a cotton farmer & raised chickens for eggs after he stopped farming. He never learned to drive an automobile. He moved his family from Hopkins county to Leesville, Louisiana to a socialist commune in the 1910s. He became disillusioned with it and moved the family to Alabma Creek in eastern Trinity County, Texas where they cleared land and built a house. The house was burned by neighborhood boys forcing the family to go on a cotton pick to Ralls County, Texas in the fall of 1925.
Eventually they settled first in Angelina County for awhile before moving over to the Austonio region of Houston County.
Papa was an avide reader and kept up with the news on other programs on the radio & later on tv. He had a couple of faithful dogs, one a Scottish terrier & later "old Bob".
