Thomas Adams was the son of Major George Adams, who served with distinction in the American Revolution. Thomas was born in Montgomery County, O., in 1798. At the age of sixteen, he embraced religion, and not long after, began to speak in public. His manner, at first, was so unattractive to his hearers that many discouraged him from preaching; but Elder George Shidler and others held him up, till, by practice and a liberal education, which he acquired after his first labors in the minis- try, he became a good orator and an attractive speaker. In 1821, he had a severe attack of fever together with a hemorrhage of the lungs, from which he never fully recovered. In May, 1822, he was married to Miss Ann Carnahan, who died a few months afterwards — a great shock to the young husband. She was buried in the Burlington church-yard, where, in a few years, the body of her husband was laid by her side. His health failed rapidly after this period. When his wife was dying, he could hardly leave his bed to bid her farewell. For a while, however, he recovered, and accomplished much as minister and school teacher. He was a hard student, doing nothing by halves, but probing every subject to the bottom. The name of Thomas Adams stands high with the people of Hamilton County, O., where he spent much of his time, not only as an able preacher and a thorough scholar, but as a devoted, humble, and faithful christian man.
