Before the Civil War, his father, Peter F. Adams was a prosperous plantation owner in AR. During the war Jesse Adams was a scout for the confederate Army along the border of Mo. and North Ark.

Due to the hardships of the war Jesse lost his health, so when the war was over, he and Lucy Jane and their small son departed by way of horse and wagon for Texas. They stopped first in Bell Co. from there they moved near Goliad Tx. on the Manahuilla Creek at Fannin, Goliad Co. Texas. On January 14,1868 John Quincey Adams was born here. They lived in Goliad Co. for five years after which they moved to Frio Co. Texas and took up a homestead on the Frio River near old Frio Town. After a number of years in Frio Co. a land owner by the name of B. L. Crouch, who was anxious to consolidate his land holdings swapped Jesse land in Zavala co. for his homestead in Frio Co. The new homestead now belonging to Jesse Adams lay along the Loma Vista Creek in Loma Vista, Zavala Co. Texas. Jesse lived only about two weeks after moving there. Lucy continued to live on the Ranch at Loma Vista until her later years she then moved to Crystal City and lived with her grand daughter, Irene Adams until her death Nov. 15,1943 she was 101 years old.

Lucy Jane Clinkscale Adams was the sister to Martha Clinksacle #19218558 who married Charles S. Wolf. Charles Wolf was a cousin to Lucinda Wolf, wife of Peter F. Adams.
