Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar., 1858
Death: Oct., 1913

Albert M. ADAMS was a son of Harvey Adams, who was one of the largest land owners one of the most successful farmers and one of the best citizens of Parke County. Harry Adams lived and died on the beautiful tract of land adjoining the state reservation 3 miles east of Rockville. Here in 1860 Albert Adams was born. He graduated at the State University, read law with S. D. Puett and was the partner when elected Representative of Parke Co in 1894. He was afterwards elected Prosecuting Attorney of this Judicial Circuit. Before studying law Mr. Adams was Superintendent of the Rockport public schools, there he was married to Miss Kate BULLOCK, the beautiful and accomplished daughter of James Bullock. Mr. and Mrs. Adams came to Rockville in 1885 and resided here until the death of Mr. Adams. Albert Adams was a man of fine personal appearance, an athlete of splendid training and remarkable strength and activity. His friends could not realize that one so strong and robust was in serious ill health when he was compelled to cease business activity, yet his decline was constant in spite of his strong constitution and he died after a long illness. Albert Adams had strong convictions and never hesitated in acting upon them, even though it meant unpopularity. The later years of his life were devoted to business and to the management of his farm four miles from Rockville. To this work as to everything he undertook he developed all the energy of his naturally industrious nature. - 1816-1916 Atlas of Parke County, Indiana, Page 58
