Martha Elizabeth Wells

F, #111736, b. 6 January 1828, d. 7 October 1874
  • Married Name: 20 November 1854; Mrs. Martha E Adams (Wells); SMITH ADAMS is a retired farmer living in Washington Township, Section 27. Post Office St Joseph. He is a native of Kentucky, and was born August 3, 1812; was raised upon a farm and had a common school education. He was married May 12, 1836, to Miss C. Ramsey, who was born in Kentucky, November 4, 1819. By this union they had five children, Jones L.R., born April 17, 1837, died June 12, 1841, W.R. born June 15, 1841; Mary E. born March 8, 1844, Rebecca C. born July 10, 1847, Edwin M., born June 29, 1850. Mrs Adams died February 4, 1854, and he was again married to Miss Elizabeth Adams, November 20, 1854. She was born in Tennessee, January 6, 1828. They had five children, James A., born January 2, 1856, Anna M., born March 26, 1858; Smith, born May 18, 1864, infant who died while young, and Ella L., born October 11, 1866. This wife died October 11, 1874, and he married May 5, 1875, to Miss Martha A. Mansfield. She was born September 11, 1818. He was very successful financially, until the War, when he lost heavily. He endured many privations for his country, and during the late war enlisted in what was known as the "Whiskey Cavalry" in the Union Army, which stood guard around St Joseph for three years. The government did not pay these men one dollar, and they did not ask for it, but furnished horses, time and services to Uncle Sam without money, and without price, and are proud to know that they had the manhood to defend their right at all hazard. Mr Adams first came to Missouri, locating in Howard County, known, in early days, as St Charles. He has lived in Missouri ever since; was engaged in the Mormon War. They surrendered upon his arrival, and he purchased land and was there when the County of Caldwell was organized. He is a Mason and a member of St Joseph Lodge #78, also a member of the Christian Church, and was Director on part of the State in the Old Branch Bank of the State of Missouri before the War, had been school director and has donated liberally to churches and school houses.
