On the same stone as his wife, Harriet Green Adams; his daughter, Edna Carlisle Adams Roosa; and his son in law, Herman M. Roosa

"I. A. Adams, farmer, sec. 27; P.O., Atlas; was born in 1803 in Rensselaer county, N.Y., the son of James and Edna Adams; received a fair education and followed sawing, and operating cotton and woolen mill with good success; he quit the business in 1843 and emigrated West, settling on the present homestead, where he has lived ever since. The farm is well improved. Feb. 10, 1825, he married Harriet Green, who was born in 1802 in Rensselaer county, N.Y., and their 3 children were Cornelius, deceased, Jeremiah and Edna. Mr. Adams first occupied about 500 acres of bottom and up land, and since has obtained about 500 acres more. He has seen the bottom opposite his residence entirely overflowed, and has been in a steam-boat over the land he now cultivates. Mr. Adams has been Assessor for 15 or 16 years. The house now occupied by him was built in 1822, with an addition in 1824. It is substantial building, and bids fair to stand for ages yet. The first preacher he knew was Rev. Wm. Carter, who was in Pittsfield so long. Mr. Adams' father was in the Revolutionary war, as privateer at sea. He distinctly remember the war of 1812."
