Article taken from CONFEDERATE VETERAN Mag., dated 1901, page 420. [This is not my family, only post Confederate articles]. Sketch written by Capt. Thomas Gibson, one who knew his kind heart and generous impulses and loved him as a brother: He was born in Pulaski, Tenn., Feb.10, 1836; died at his home near Arlington, Shelby County, Tenn., Sept. 2, 1901. When quite a young man he went to Memphis, Tenn., and engaged in business' was later a member of the cotton commission firm of Fowlkes and Adams, and was so engaged for several years. After his marriage, Dec.3, 1867 to MISS MARY E. BRAGG, a beautiful and cultured woman, who survived him, he retired from the merchantile business and afterwards engaged in farming. There are eight children living-five sons and three daughters. Maj. ADAMS was a true and faithful soldier from the beginning to the end. He was commissary of subsistence and served on the staff of his brother, BRIG. GEN. JOHN ADAMS, until the latter's gallant ride and heroic death in the sanguinary battle of Franklin, Nov. 30, 1864. Afterwards he served on the staff of that splendid officer, BRIG. GEN. ROBERT LOWRY, who was afterwards Gov. of Miss. Maj. ADAMS was a genial and approachable officer, and was greatly esteemed by his men. He participated in the several great campaigns of Gen. JOSEPH E. JOHNSTON, serving under Liet. Gens. PEMBERTON and POLK in Miss and was constantly on duty during the ' one hundred days fighting' from Resaca to Atlanta and under Gen. J.B. HOOD in his ever- memorable march through Georgia, Ala., and Tenn. He surrendered with the brigade in the Army of Tenn., again commanded by Gen. JOSEPH E. JOHNSTON, at Bentonville, N.C. He attended the last United Confederate Veterans reunion at Memphis and said to the writer that it was a great pleasure to meet again so many of his old comrades.
