Adams, Hugh Leech, second counselor to President Wilford Day of the Parowan Stake, Iron county, Utah, was born May 23, 1882, at Parowan, Utah, the son of Hugh Leech Adams and Juliette Cecelia Bayles. He was baptized Nov. 5, 1891, by David Matheson jun. and commenced his Church activities very young. He was ordained a Seventy March 17, 1907, by William H. Lyman, and married Barbara Ellen Matheson June 7, 1907. She is the daughter of David Matheson and Sarah Gray Robertson, and was born May 22, 1883, at Parowan. The following children have been born to them: Henry Matheson, Lilian, Hugh LeRoy, Norman Matheson and Barbara. Bro. Adams took an active part in the Ward Y. M. M. I. A. as a counselor for several years, and in 1908-1911 he filled a successful mission to the Northern States. Some time after his return he was chosen as one of the presidents of the 69th quorum of Seventy and held that position until Sept. 24, 1916, when he was ordained a High Priest by Anthony W. Ivins and set apart as second counselor to Wilford Day in the Parowan Stake presidency. He was appointed secretary and treasurer of a committee of three Dec. 27, 1915, to build a new meeting house at Parowan, which house, a most beautiful structure, was finished in two years at a cost of about $38,000. At the present time Brother Adams is serving a four years' term as a commissioner of Iron county.
