He made his home with his older brother, J. B. Adams, until he enlisted in the 2nd Michigan Infantry. He stood loyal and faithful to his country, and served a term in Libby prison. At the close of the war he came home with a good record. Being and expert miller, he was never without employment, alway pleasing his employers and they in turn pleased with him, for he was alway unselfish in what ever he undertook to do. Soon after this he married Mary J. Hoag of Battle Creek, MIc., and removed to Cairo, Ill., as miller for the Halliday Bros After a few years of happy married life Mrs. Adams died. He returned to Battle Creek and sometime after, married Mrs. Ophelia Packard, who now survives him. Joe and his wife removed to Leavenworth, Kan., where he had charge of Rush & Sprague's mill, where he remained over a year when he contracted with Nordyke & Marmon, mill furnishers of Indianapolis.He remained with them several years. About three ago he moved to Effingham to oversee his farm and one year later he accepted a position in Nashville, Tenn., and at the time of his death had charge of the Cumberland mills of Nashville, a responsible position and one which he filled creditably, and was loved and honored by those for whom he worked . . . On the afternoon of April 9th he passed over the river . . . That our lamented friend was a man of sterling qualities, a man whose devotion to his chosen work was excelled only by his love for family and home, faithful to all trusts, just in all his dealing. None spoke of him but to praise him.
