Birth: Jun. 7, 1844, USA
Death: Jun. 17, 1907
Rock Hill
Sullivan County
New York, USA

Hiram Adams, one of the most solid and substantial citizens of the town of Thompson, died at his home at Rock Hill, Sullivan county, on the 17th inst., at the age of 63 years. Death was the result of acute Bright's disease, and though he had been in failing health for some time, his death was unexpected. He leaves a widow and three children: William and Chester, of Rock Hill, and Mrs. Henry Harding, of Monticello. The funeral was held on Thursday, from his late residence at Rock Hill, and interment was made in the village cemetery there.

Deceased was a veteran of the Civil War, having for three years fought for his country in the 143rd regiment, and an older brother perished on the battlefield. For the past twelve of fifteen years he had been an assessor of the town of Thompson, and was engaged on work connected with the office at the time of his death. It is thought that the town board will appoint his oldest son to the place so long and so worthily filled by his father.
--Middletown (NY) Daily Times-Press, June 22, 1907

He was the son of Peter and Matilda Adams.
