This memorial is dedicated to my ancestor Henry Adams. Henry was the son of Henry Adams and Edith Squire, he married Elizabeth Paine on October 17, 1643 in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachucetts.
He was the father of eleven children:
Elizabeth born 1632, Eleazer, Joseph, Jasper, Elizabeth born November 11, 1649, Henry born July 14, 1652, John born July 14, 1652, Moses, John born February 18, 1656, Henry and Samuel
He was Massacred at his own front door by Indians
A Lieutenant of the Training Band, Clerk of the writs, and Representative to the General Court in 1659, 1665, 1674, and 1675

He was killed, at the door of his house, 21 Feb 1676/77, during the Indian attack on Medfield, Norfolk Co., MA,& was probably buried nearby. His wife, Elizabeth, was accidentally killed the same day in Medfield & was probably buried near the house of Rev. Wilson in which she was killed. Their deaths are recounted in numerous histories of King Philip's War, George Madison Bodge's Soldiers in King Philip's War, p. 284, being one. Henry was the oldest brother of my paternal ancestor, Samuel. bio by Darrel Salisbury
