H. B. ADAMS, farmer, Section 1, P. O. Humboldt, was born near Cleveland, Ohio, in 1845, and shortly afterwards his parents moved to Green County, Wis., where he was reared on a farm. In June, 1862, he enlisted in the Eighth United States Infantry, Company B, and served three years. After the war, he went to Stephenson County, Ill., where he was employed in farming and teaching school. In the fall of 1872, he came to Kansas, and located on his present farm in Allen County, east of the city of Humboldt. Mr. Adams has 240 acres of improved land, and since his arrival in this State, has also taught school in the county. In connection with his farming pursuits, he was for two years teacher in the public schools in Humboldt. During 1881 and 1882, he attended the Normal School in Paola, graduating in June of the latter year.
