A book about Abraham Lincoln, owned by Henry F. ADAMS Jr. (b. 1846) has just been listed on Ebay - it is item #3911854299
This is copied from the listing: To add to the interest of this item, the book belonged to Henry F. Adams, Jr.Henry has inscribed his name on the first page of the book "Henry F. Adams Jr. Prescott A.T.1903"while living in the wild west of the Arizona Territory.
A quick look at online Civil War records show what appears to be this Henry as having served in the Civil War from Iowa.Henry is also listed in the 1920 Census as 73 years of age and born in Iowa in 1846. He was living with his wife Harriett M., 67 years of age and his grandson, 3 year old Amos D. Adams. I did not locate him in the 1930 census, although someone who might be his grandson, Henry F. Adams, born in 1923, lived in Prescott at that time. Further research should most certainly turn up Henry in older records, along with additional family members.
I'm quite sure that this book would have had great significance to Mr. Adams. There are some pencilled marks randomly throughout the book which offer a great opportunity to understand firsthand what impressed him while reading this book.
An example:Joint Debate Between Mr. Douglas and Mr. Lincoln at Ottawa, August 1858 - Mr. Douglas' speech
"Here I assent if uniformity in the local laws and institutions of the different States is neither possible nor desirable. If uniformity had been adopted when the Government was established, it must inevitably have been the uniformity of slavery everywhere, or else the uniformity of negro citizenship and negro equality everywhere. We are told by Lincoln, that he is utterly opposed to the Dred Scott decision, and will not submit to it, for the reason that he says it deprives the negro of the rights and privileges of citizenship."
A copy of Henry's signature is attached to an identical posting at ancestry.com ADAMS message board - I hope that this helps someone!
