Biography Dixie Hansen notes: There is an error in the biography of Nathan Adams which was published in the LaGrange Pioneers. Namely, the "daughter" (Joannah Elizabeth Adams) who married J.A. Hubbard were not Nathan's daughter, but rather was his grandniece. Walter Adams, mentioned as a probable relative, was Joannahs' brother and Nathan's grand nephew.

The article:
The Adams family that came from New York to LaGrange in 1845 sprang from the "Braintree" branch as did Pres. John Adams. Nathan Adams, Sr., born in 1778, and his wife, Lucinda, (1787-1855); and Nathan, Jr., and wife, Rachel owned the northern half of Sec. 24 with the exception of the Fearnley farm. Nearly all good memory of these people is lost but their name still clings to the locality in which they settled. It is said that when a name was chosen for the first post office of their neighborhood the choice was between Porter and Adams. The latter was decided on in honor of John Quincy Adams and his local kin. There was also another son, Horace, and a daughter who married J.A. Hubbard. Another daughter, Mrs. Jared Patchen, with her family came in 1847. Mrs. Celia Patchen Nickerson told her sister, Minnie, that when her Grandfather Adams bought the lots in the Round Prairie Cemetery she remembered that he told her father he had bought enough for his own family and the Patchen's, too. If Nathan's senior, remains lie there, no marker is there to give the date of his death. Nathan Adams, Jr., (1824-1850) died at 26 years of age. He left a widow, Rachel, and a daughter, Nathanette; (Guy G. Prentice, guardian). His farm, the Geo. King place, was sold to John Bottrell, and wife, Lavina Serena B. Walter Adams who attended the Hill school during the fifties, must have been a relative.3 
Biography Michael S. Disbrow: One of the founders of the Adams Settlement near Danby, Tomkins Co., NY. (this needs to be researched - as other evidence, including the Two Joannah Memoirs and the 1850 US Census, make it very clear that Nathan and Lucinda settled in Walworth Co., WI 
Biography* JAF: They were a very musical family and I thought no one could play the fiddle any better than my father. His brother Nathan and his son Nathan were fine musicians and used to play for dances. Uncle Nathans children had all grown up when he immigrated with his son Nathan to Wisconsin, driving a team from Spencer in Tioga County New York State clear through to Wisconsin, and settled on Heart Prairie in Walworth Co., where he lived many years. I presume there are yet many living amongst the old settlers who have tripped "the light fantastic Toe" after the inspiring music of the Severance and Adams band. Uncle Nathan was also a good scholar in arithmetic and algebra and liked to have people come to him with sums and problems for him to make out. He had but one great fault (that was his love for ardent spirits), and he would not play for a dance until he had a drink or so. He had a large family of boys and girls and after they were grown up, the boys used to talk to him to try have him break off as they were really ashamed of him. His wife, Aunt Lucinda used to put a stop to their talking to him about drinking and say "You'll never make half so decent a man as your father." Strange to say, none of the boys ever touched liquor of any kind, and were honest temperate men and respected by all. The old people lived to be very old, and after Aunt Lucinda died, Uncle Nathan went to New York to visit his daughter Mary. They were strong Baptists, and used to have their family prayers after he had gone to bed, thinking he would not enjoy hearing them. He said to Mary one day, "Why do you wait until I am in bed before you have your prayers?" Mary said "Why, Father, I thought you would not care to hear them." He said, "Well don't do that any more." Strange to say, although he was over 80 years old, he experienced religion and became a member of the Baptist church and stopped drinking and was a sober good Christian church member until his death which took place a few years later, on Heart Prairie, Wisconsin. When he passed away, his remains were laid by his wife Lucinda, and his son Horace and Nathan who died of cholera many years before. They lie in the old burying ground on Round Prairie Walworth Co., Wisconsin.2

Biography James M. Buxton relates: My Grandmother Fanny Rowe Buxton told me about her Uncle Oscar. He is shown on the family chart. Anyway this Uncle Oscar apparently became a sea-faring man, and travelled the world on cargo ships. One of the things that he accumulated was a little monkey in one of these far off ports, and he would take the monkey along with him on all of his travels. As time went on the monkey became a problem, so when he came back home he took the monkey to the local zoo. (city here is unknown). He left the monkey with the zoo keepers, but Uncle Oscar would return to visit the monkey during the times he came back into his own home port. The little monkey would recognize Oscar and would run up to the bars of the cage and reach his arms through to give Oscar a big hug. Apparently on one of these visits, a neighboring gorilla to this little monkey witnessed this hugging exchange, and reached through the bars of his cage with his long arms grabbed Oscar and proceeded to give Oscar a big hug. They had to get the zoo keepers to come and pry the gorilla's arms off before Oscar could get himself free.

Probably not of much interest in a genealogical study of a family, but my Grandmother would get a big laugh out of this every time she would tell the story.3 
Employment* Surgeon2 
Biography* JEAHR: My brother Oscar Henry Adams was from his earliest boyhood a natural doctor and also had a love for the sea and his spare time when out of school was spent in making ships and fixing pills and medicine to put in his little tin trunk. When he was old enough Uncle Gaylord Willsey sent him to New York City to study medicine. He did not stay there long but put out to sail away, first to Cuba and afterward to go as supercargo on a ship to China. After he had roamed about the world until he was satisfied he took up his studies again, and went to France and got his diploma there. The Crimean War had broken out and he enlisted as a Surgeon on the greatest ship that then sailed the Atlantic. The French hired this ship "The Great Republic" of the United States to carry soldiers out to the seat of war and bring the wounded back. He was also a Surgeon in the Civil War in a New York regiment. He was cut on the head with a saber in the hands of a guerrilla when helping to gather the wounded on a battlefield. He saved his life by making the Free Masons sign, and guerrilla chief was a Mason too, and he took him to his place and cared for him until he was well. He was married before he went into the army and had two children: one boy Arthur and a girl, Elizabeth but always called Libbie. About a years after he came back from the war he opened an office at Elmira N. Y. and practiced medicine a number of years. While treating a man for a malignant cancer he caught that awful cancer for which there has never been found a cure. It broke out on his cheek and he told his folks there was no help for it, but they insisted on his having it cut out, So to please his wife Lucy he went to Rochester and had it cut out but it soon grew again, and eat into his mouth until his teeth all dropped out, and then into the grain and he died in great agony with his hands raised up to Heaven. Just in the prime of life, only about 44 years old and I had not seen him in nearly 30 years but he sent me messages he told his wife on every breeze that blew westward. I shall see him when I cross over to the other side and' we shall have so much to tell each other of our life on this earth.

Revolutionary War, JAF: My grandfathers oldest son Henry was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and when the war was over he was discharged and started for home, but died on the way. All the soldiers had land given them by the government, after the war and the tract given to him, as near as the relatives could discover was right where the city of Washington now is situated. They talked it over often and let the affair drift along, but none of them had enough energy to go to law about it, and try to establish the claim., so it was never settled in any way.1,3

Biography* JAF: Then a few weeks after my father came with the youngest boy Walter - about four years old and gave him to his Aunt Joannah to care for. Aunt Joannah felt so sorry for the poor little neglected follow she took him as her own.
Walter Frank Adams was brought up by Uncle Jacob, and Aunt Joannah Frank and as soon as he was old enough he went to learn the tinners trade at Stevens Point of Horace who came from New York State there to work at his trade. After a few years he went to Chicago and got work. When the Civil War broke out he enlisted in Taylors Battery of light artillery. After the close of the war he came to Springfield, Wisconsin and set up a shop of his own. At the close of the year he married a pretty girl who was then teaching school" there. Her name was Loe Owens and she lived only about ten years. They had three children of whom two died leaving Clarence whom Walter loved dearly. He had moved to Clinton, Iowa where his wife died. After a few years he married again to a lady who was a widow and I don't remember her name only he called her Susie and they moved to Toledo, Ohio, where he kept a hardware store many years. Clarence grew up to be a bright handsome young man, and after he left school he went down to some place in Texas and worked on a railroad train ad brakeman. About a year after I think he was taken with small pox and died there which almost broke his fathers heart and he lived only a few years after his death. Walter was born in 1839 and died in 1903. 1 saw him only once in 28 years when I went two years before he died to Toledo and spent a week at his beautiful home where his wife Susie is now living in the year 1911.1

After an illness of several months, Mrs. Wm. Hubbard passed away on Thursday morning at 4:30 o'clock. Although she had been ill for some time her death was sudden. When going to bed Wednesday evening she was apparently as well as usual, but the angel of death called her while she slept.

In 1913 they came to Burlington to reside and for the past six years have lived in their home on Dyer Street.

Although the deceased was of a retiring disposition she was well known and loved by all with whom she came in contact. Besides her husband and son, the following grandchildren survive: Edward and Hildagard Luedke of Milwaukee, and Halsey and Iris Hubbard of this city. One brother, Wm. H. Aldrich of Burlington and a host of friends and acquaintances are also left to mourn the loss of a kind an loving wife, mother, sister and friend.

In the fall of 1863 the regiment was ordered South. In July, 1864, he was commissioned as surgeon of the Seventh regiment in place of Dr. L. B. Smith, killed at Tupelo. He was mustered out of service at the close of the war with an excellent record as a physician and surgeon. After the war he devoted himself to the practice of his profession and to [p.515] public services in Minneapolis, excepting a period of six years spent in editorial life in California, first on the staff of the Daily Times, and later as managing editor of the Alta Californian. At the death of his father, in 1874, he returned to Minneapolis and resumed practice. He has filled the following positions of trust: 1867, member of the Minnesota legislature (house); 1875, member of the city council; 1876, mayor of Minneapolis; 1877, Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor (not elected); 1886, Democratic candidate for govern (not elected); 1886-87-88, again mayor of Minneapolis.

Biography Minnesota Progressive Men:

Albert Alonzo Ames is one of the best known names in the city of Minneapolis, and at various time during his career has been the leader of a larger and more enthusiastic following probably than has ever been attached to the fortunes and person of any single citizen on that city. He was born at Garden Prairie, Boone County, Illinois, January 18, 1842. He was the fourth son of a family of seven boys. His parents were Alfred Elisha Ames, M. D., who died in Minneapolis in 1874, and Martha A. Ames, who still resides in Minneapolis. Dr. Alfred Elisha Ames came with his family to Minneapolis in the spring of 1852, before the locality had a name and while it was still a portion of the Ft. Snelling reservation. The subject of this sketch was then a lad of ten years. He attended the public schools until sixteen, graduating from the high school, which was at that time a department of the Washington school, then located on the block now occupied by the new court house and city hall. In 1857, while still attending the high school, he served as "printer's devil" and as a newspaper carrier for the Northwestern Democrat, published by Maj. W. A. Hotchkiss, the first paper issued in Minneapolis on the west side of the river. The building where the Democrat was published is still standing on the southeast corner of Third Street and Fifth Avenue South. It was in his capacity as "printer's devil" that Albert Alonzo Ames earned his first dollar. In the summer of 1858 he commenced the study of medicine and surgery with his father, and after attending two preliminary and two regular courses at the Rush Medical College, Chicago he graduated with the degree of M. D., February 5, 1862, at the age of twenty. In the following August, Dr. A. A. Ames, who had returned to Minneapolis to begin the practice of his profession, at the call of President Lincoln helped to organize Company B, of the Ninth Minnesota Regiment, enlisting himself as a private. That was the time of the Indian troubles on the frontier, and the men of the Ninth Regiment, who had been given fifteen days' leave of absence after enlisting, in which to return to their homes for the purpose of settling up their affairs, were ordered hurriedly to the front against the Indians, who were rapidly advancing on Minneapolis. Dr. Ames had been appointed orderly sergeant, a musket was issued to him, which he still possesses, and he was ordered to gather up the men of his command for active duty. A few days afterward he was commissioned assistant surgeon Seventh Minnesota Regiment Infantry Volunteers, and was ordered to report to that regiment then en route to Fort Ridgeley, which the Indians were infesting. Dr. Ames served with his regiment during its three years of hard service, and was promoted to the rank of Surgeon Major July, 1864, when he was only twenty-two years of age. Dr. Ames returned to Minneapolis at the close of the war, but being of an adventurous and ambitious spirit he set out for California by way of the Isthmus in 1868. In California he went into the newspaper business and soon became managing editor of the Alta California, the leading paper on the Pacific Coast. In the fall of 1874 he was summoned back to Minneapolis to the death-bed of his father, and he has been a resident of the city almost continuously ever since. He was always taken an active interest in politics, his political sentiments being those ordinarily entertained by those who are known as "war Democrats." In the fall of 1867 he was elected a member of the legislature from Hennepin County on what was called the "soldier's ticket." In 1876 he was elected "centennial mayor" of [p.65] Minneapolis. In 1882 he was again elected to the same office, and in 1886 was for the third time chosen mayor of the city. In the latter year he was nominated by the Democratic party for governor and in the race for the latter office reduced the previous large Republican majorities to only 2,600, the actual result being in doubt for some days. He was also defeated as Democratic nominee for congress and for lieutenant governor, having the misfortune to belong to the minority party in the state. At this writing Dr. Ames maintains an independent stand regarding politics, his Democracy meaning Jeffersonianism and his interest in politics being directed chiefly by his sympathy for the masses. In accepting the nomination for Governor in 1886, Dr. Ames asked the Democratic convention to pledge the party to the support of a bill for the establishment of a Soldier's Home in Minnesota. This resolution was adopted, and, although his party was unsuccessful, the Republicans accepted his suggestions and the result is the commodious and well appointed retreat for the aged and indigent veterans on a commanding site at the junction of the romantic Minnehaha with the majestic Mississippi. Dr. Ames served as surgeon of this institution for nearly five years after its establishment when his professional duties necessitated his resignation. Dr. Ames has been Master of Hennepin Lodge, No. 4, of the Masonic order; High Priest of St. John's Chapter, No. 9; Eminent Commander of Zion Commander, No. 2, Knights Templar, and Grand Chancellor of the Grand Commandery Knights Templar of Minnesota. He has been Chancellor Commander of Minneapolis Lodge, No. 1, Knights of Phythias, Grand Chancellor of Minnesota and Supreme Representative to the Supreme Lodge of the world from this jurisdiction. He was on the charter list of No. 44, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, the pioneer lodge of the Northwest, and its first Exalted Ruler. He is a member of the G. N. Morgan Post, No. 4, G. A. R.

He left town for several months and when he returned he was indicted and stood trial - accused of accepting funds collected by his agents from gamblers and disorderly houses. First trial was hung, he was convicted in a 2nd trial, but appealed. The 3rd and 4th trials were also hung... and he was not further prosecuted. His brother, superintendant of the police, was convicted on the same charges.

Milit-Beg* Minnesota; ...at the call for volunteers to enter the Civil war he helped to organize Co. B. of the Ninth Minnesota reigment, enlisting himself as a private. At this time the Indians also began to grow restless and troublesome and the men of the regiment, who has been given a fifteen-day leave of absence to return to their home and settle up their affairs, were hurriedly ordered to the frontier to quell the Indians, who by this time had become very savage and quarrelsome.

Later he was appointed assistant surgeon of the Seventh Minnesota regiment and with that reigment was ordered to report to Ridgely, at which point the greatest danger threatened. He served with his regiment for three years and was then appointed surgeon-general, when 23 years of age.

A few weeks after the wedding Dr. Ames went to war with his company.; Bride=Sarah Strout7

He had a younger adopted brother who was named Albert so it's hard to say for sure what influence that may have made in the name change. He later changed back to using Albert A. Ames.

Biography William Folsom, Fifty Years in the Northwest:

Alfred Elisha Ames, M.D., was born at Colchester, Vermont, Dec. 13, 1814. He was the oldest son of Billy and Phebe (Baker) Ames, whose ancestors were early colonists from England. Alfred E. commenced the study of medicine in 1832. He occasionally taught school and worked at his trade of brickmason. He also varied his labors by publishing an arithmetic. He came West in 1838, locating first at Springfield, Illinois; concluded his medical studies at Rush Medical College, Chicago, in 1845. Before leaving Illinois he was elected to the state senate. In 1851 he came to St. Anthony Falls, made a claim, and entered into partnership with Dr. J. H. Murphy. In 1852 he served as surgeon at Fort Snelling, and in 1853 was elected to the territorial legislature as a member of the house. In 1854 he was elected probate judge; in 1857 member of the Democratic wing of the constitutional convention, and in 1860 became a member of the state normal board. During the remainder of his life he devoted himself to the practice of medicine, but also served the public in many positions of trust. He died Dec. 24, 1874. His wife and five children survive him.1 
Biography From a Vertical File at the MN Historical Society, taken from te page of a publication with a page header: Founders of the University of Minnesota.

Dr. Alfred E. Ames was chairman of the committee on school funds, education, and science in the Democratic wing of the state constitutional convention of 1857. He was responsible for the incorporation in the constitution of a clause that fixed the location of the university and provided that it receive all past and future grants of land. In one of the debates he said: "It was necessary to incorporate something into the constitution that would secure to the University of Minnesota the liberal donation made by Congress for that purpose."

It is of interest to note that Dr. Ames was a prominent citizen of Minnesota in other respects. He was one of the pioneer physicians in the town of St. Anthony and during part of 1853 held the position of surgeon at Fort Snelling. In 1854 he was elected to the office of probate judge. On January 4, 1856, he drafted a bill for the incorporation of the village of Minneapolis, which later became law; and in April, 1857, he was appointed postmaster of Minneapolis.

Charles C. Ames, the Son of an Ex-Mayor of Minneapois, and Well Known Here

Charles C. Ames, son of ex-Mayor A.A. Ames, of Minnesapolis, was accidentally killed near Port Angeles Friday evening by falling from a log. He was employed by the government as a linema on the telegraph line between Port Angeles and Cape Flattery. He and another lineman went Friday to repair the line which was knocked down by the storm. They traveled along a trail for some distance and, not coming to the break, they concluded it unnecessary for both to go further, as one could do the work as well as two.

Ames went on and his companion turned back, expecting Ames to be back in a few hours at most. But night came and went without his returning and when night came on again the companion grew uneasy and started out with a lantern to look for him. Just a short distance from where they had separated the day before he found him lying dead. He had gone on and repaired the break in the line and when coming back he had evidently stepped on a log, slipped, and in falling broke his neck. As no trace of a bruise could be discovered, the doctor concluded his neck had been broken in the jar when he slipped.

Young Ames was 25 years of age and was quite well known here, having clerked in Dr. E.L. Smith's office for a time. He was married and had one child 5 years old. His wife was living on a ranch near Pysht. Word was sent to her and she is expected here today or tomorrow. The body was brought in here yesterday and is being embalmed by Bonney & Stewart for shipment East to the parents.

Article in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (Seattle Washington) on 29 Dec 1892, page 5

HOW YOUNG AMES DIED

He slipped on the Trail - His Romancce and Celebrated Elopement

R.S. Dimmick, of East Clallam, for whom Charles C. Ames, who was accidentally killed a few days ago, had been working as a lineman, says the accident occurred near East Classlam and not Port Angeles, as reported. He did not fall off a log, but slipped on the trail, his neck evidentally having been broken by the jar.

Mrs. Ames was living at East Hallam, having moved off the ranch for the winter. She will come in after the arrangments have been completed for shipping the body East and accompany it back to her old home. A telegram was received from Minneapolis, stating that Dr. Ames, the father of the deceased, was absent from the city. It is expected that another dispatch will be received today giving instructions regarding the disposition to be made of the body.

Young Ames and his wife are the young couple who created such a sensation a few years ago by running away from Minneapolis and getting married in Dakota, as they were both under age and could not be legally married in the state. Dr. Ames, the young man's father, who was then mayor of Minneapolis, chartered a special train for them and went along to see that the job was properly performed. They all then returned to Minneapolis, and for some years afterwards young Ames and his wife came to Seattle. He was considered a very steady young fellow and was well liked by his associates.

Article in the Saint Paul Globe (Saint Paul, Minnesota) on 12 Feb 1893:

CHARLIE AMES' DEATH
No One Can Find Out What Caused It.

Mystery surrounds the death of the late Charles C. Ames, son of Ddr. A.A. Ames, of Minneapolis. When the news came to Minneapolis of his death near Seattle, Wash., it was said that he suffered a fall from a telegraph pole while working as a lineman. That does not seem to have been the case. The first report of his death, about a month and a half ago, was accepted as true until the body was brought to Minneapolis for burial last week. Examination of the body fails to show any cause of death. nothing indicates that the young man was killed by a fall. Nor could his death have been caused by the cold, else the body would show some traces of its effects.

The young man was employed in looking after government telegraph lines. Out in that country the wires are strung on trees, from which it would be difficult for a man to fall. He left home one day to dod some work, apparently in good health. When he did not return that night no alarm was felt, as he sometimes remained away all night shen working some distance away. The next night came without bringing him home. Then some men who were employed at the same kind of work searched for him. He was found stone dead at the foot of a tree on which he had been working. He lay on his back in the snow, with arms outstretched. No marks of violence were visible on the body. The first conjecture was that the neck had been broken by a fall. Examination shows that the neck is as sound as it ever was. No bones were broken. The internal organs were all found to be in a normal condition. When no broken bones or internal injuries were found it was thought that heart disease might have been the cause of death. but the heart is all right too, as sound as a heart could be.

The cause of death, or probable cause, is all the more mysterious because no motive for foul play can be guessed. Moreover, foul play usually leaves some indications of its infliction. The case is so mysterious that the relatives of the young man will probe still deeper.1

Biography6 Sep 1862 letter written by James A. Ames, a son of Dr. Alfred Elizsha Ames of Minneapolis to his parents. He is a drummer boy in Captain Strout's Company and only fifteen years old. Published in THE WEEKLY PIONEER & DEMOCRAT St Paul, Minnesota Friday, Sept 12, 1862, Page 1

Hutchinson, Sept 6, 1862

Dear Folks at Home: We have met the Red Skins. We left Glencoe on Monday at noon and arrived at this place that night and camped. The next day we went up to Acton where Mr Jones and family were killed the week before. We camped in his yard that night. About seven o'clock there were three messengers arrived from Forest City. At Forest City they had been attacked twice, but had repulsed them each time. We were ready to start before sunrise the next morning. We had got about two and a half miles this side of Acton when our advance guard discovered the infernal red-skins. When they saw that we had discovered them, they commenced to give their war whoop and shake their blankets. Captain Strout then ordered us to fire on them. He divided us into five squads. They returned the fire briskly, but we advanced on them steadily, driving them before us like so many sheep. The first thing we knew there were seen advancing in our rear a large body of horsemen. Lieutenant Clark took his squad to the rear of the wagons and commenced to fire on them. Here the first man was killed. It was Albert Getchell. He was struck in the forehead and dropped dead beside the Lieutenant. Then commenced the race for life or death. The teamseters ran their teams and left us fighting, so that we had to run to catch up with them. Edwin Stone, of Minneapolis, fell mortally wounded while we were running. He exclaimed, as he fell, "My God, they will butcher me!" There were four out of six of our tent hurt - one mortally. Mr Florida was shot in the foot, but is doing well. We arrived here that day noon nearly dead. I lost my drum and hat, but stuck to my gun. I did not throw away drum. We were attacked again yesterday here in the Fort. They laid a part of Hutchinson in ashes, and killed and carried away the horses and cattle. We killed six or seven of them, but not one of us was hurt inside the Fort. But there were one woman and two children murdered a mile out. What a sight! But I must close. I am not hurt, but worn out. We received reinforcements last night.
