Notes for JOHN A. ADAMS:
John married Abigail Adams in 1811. According to Effie Adams, his great granddaughter, Abigail was the daughter of Spencer Adams, and was either his first or second cousin.
John served in the War of 1812 under General Andrew Jackson. He served in the Seminole Creek Indian War. He served between 1812-1813, Capt Martin's Company, North Carolina Militia.
John moved near Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri with his family around 1834. He bought two land warrants in township 45 range 25 and built a house on section 11 (8 miles southeast of Warrensburg). He built a good-sized L-shaped house of white oak logs, one and a half stories high, where he lived until his death. A part of this house was still standing in 1972. (1)
In 1853 he returned to North Carolina and married his second wife, Peggy Evans, a woman who could neither read nor write.
His sons, Daniel, Abraham and George, lived on farms adjoining his. Tom located on a farm about four miles distant. That section of the country is still known by the name of "Adams Neighborhood". There is the Adams Cemetery and the Adams Schoolhouse, although the original old log schoolhouse is no more. All of his sons rest in the Adams Cemetery except Jackson and Hugh. Jane, who never married, is buried there.
When the Civil War broke out, George was the only son to join (most of the others were too old to join). George died within a year of enlisting (having drown in a river) and left a widow and three children. One of the children, Sarah/Sally, lived with John and Peggy. John's sons were strong Union men, but his daughters had married men whose sympathies were with the South. After the war, when things were too "hot" in Missouri, Margaret's family moved on to Texas. All of Susan McCrary's folks (except one brother and herself), had Southern leanings, not always openly expressed, but understood. Feeling ran very high for years in Missouri and Kansas over the War, and families were divided. (1)
John was listed in the Missouri 1870 Census as age 78, living with his second wife, Peggy/Margaret Adams, age 56. His occupation is listed as Farmer, with Real Estate valued at $14,000 and Personal Property valued at $1,100. It also states that he cannot write (it's possible that this was meant to refer to Peggy).
John was a Baptist. (1)
John was stricken with paralysis about a year before his death. (1)

12. JUDGE DANIEL A.6 ADAMS (JOHN A.5, JACOB4, JOHN HOBBS3, BENJAMIN2, THOMAS1) was born December 18, 1813 in Roaring River, Wilkes, North Carolina, and died February 07, 1892 in Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri. He married SUSANNAH MCCRARY January 28, 1840 in Johnson County, Missouri, daughter of ELIJAH MCCRARY and ELIZABETH YATES. She was born November 17, 1821 in , Howard County, Missouri, and died June 03, 1911 in Warrensburg, Johnson County, Missouri.
Notes for JUDGE DANIEL A. ADAMS:
Daniel moved from North Carolina to Missouri with his family in 1834. He bought one warrant entitling him to 160 acres of the N.E. qt. of N.E. qt. of section 15 Warrensburg township 45. He then entered 300 acres of land from the Government located in Sections 14 and 15 where he built a log cabin, hewing and hauling the logs on a solid wooden wheel wagon drawn by oxen. The country where they settled was open prairie with no trees. The logs were two feet square at ends and as long as he laid them. There was a double fireplace in the two rooms he built, with two closets, one on either side of the fireplace. You could walk in the closets and see these large logs. The rooms were a story and a half. The ceilings had great wide beams above that shone like they were waxed. Later, when they had children, they added onto each side of the house, making a porch and kitchen and a bedroom on the north side. On the south side, there were two rooms and a porch. The southeast room was Daniel's study or office(1)
The following is from the wife of Solomon McCrary - given by Mararet Shields McCrary:
"Daniel Adams and Susan McCrary were married 28 Jan 1840 and went to house keeping in a brand new log house, March 1, 1840. Daniel and Susan went from Grandpa Adam's on Saturday, February 27th, to Grandpa McCrary's and stayed over Sunday. Sunday they went to church at Shilod. She was wearing a bottle green dress and dress bonnet and he was wearing a dark blue broad cloth suit. Rev. Sam King preached that Sunday. Then they rode back seven miles to Father Elijah McCrary. Then the next morning, her youngest brother, Solomon McCrary, harnessed up to our horse wagon to bring her to her new home. The household goods of the young bride, the furnishings of new house very simple, but ample for those times. She brought to the new home 1 chair, 2 feather beds, 2 home made quilts, and 6 quilts. He brought one feather bed, and 2 bed steads were purchased by the groom. And the purchase price being a cow and a calf.
The young couple followed the household goods on horseback, riding double. She wearing a homespun cotton dress, a blue and yellow medium check. They milked seven cows and by October had a barrel of butter to send to Lexington, Missouri, where the annual trip in wagons across the county was made to exchange the products for annual supply of groceries."
Daniel was elected Justice of the Peace in 1852 and served 4 years. He was re-elected and served 2 years.
During the Civil War, Daniel kept a barrel of whiskey for the many soldiers that were passing through. Daniel had two boys fight for the North (John and William). The Confederates were always looking for the Union boys who might be around, but the family was never bothered (they fed both sides). (1)
In 1866 he was elected county judge, serving 2 terms (3 years), and the end of which time he resigned. He was township clerk several years and has held the office of school director subsequent to the free school systems establishment in this Missouri. Daniel and Susan were members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. "Mr. Adams is one of those sterling pioneers whose force of character coupled with his industry has wielded a powerful influence in his neighborhood for good; hospitable and generous in nature, he has secured a large circle of friends." (2)
In the 1870 Missouri Census, Daniel is listed as Head of Household, residing in Johnson Country, Washington Township, age 50, occupation farmer, with $8,400 (?) in Real Estate and $2,500 in Personal Property. He had Susan (age 48), Anna E. (age 27), William (age 25), Jane A. (age 24), Elijah (age 22), Susan E. (age 20), Clara (age 18), Robert (age 15), Thomas (age 15), and James (age 11) residing with him.
His granddaughter, Effie, remembered him walking over his farm with his two dogs, Sanka and Moody, always at his heels. After Daniel and Susan died, Abbie and Bob lived on the place until they died in 1917 and 1921, respectively, when the farm was sold to a distant relative. While they were in Warrensburg one day, the house burned to the ground (1)

Notes for SUSANNAH MCCRARY:
In the 1900 U.S. Census: Susan is found in Montserrat, Johnson County, Missouri (175/179).
"With the going home of Grandma Adams there closed a long life marked by qualities of sterling worth, and child-like purity, whose influence will go on indefinitely, as the tiny circles, caused by a pebble thrown into the water go on and on, forming an ever widening circle.
Rarely does the life of one woman living so quiet a life touch and affect so many other lives as did hers, not only through the large number coming directly under her influence, but also by the unusual force and staunch uprightness of her character.
Grandma Adams was born in Howard County, Missouri, November 17, 1821, the same year that the state was admitted into the union.
Her personal knowledge of events and changes incident to the development of a new country form a most interesting history. A story of never-waning charm to her children and grandchildren. For she could tell not only of the fierce struggles of the early pioneer with the unbroken soil, but also of the prowlings of the wild animals of the forest and prairie; of long journeys by wagon, the only means of transportation, to establish a new home site, was governed by various physical features such as the convenient location of timber and natural springs of water.
Sometime during the thirties, she came to Johnson County with her parents and other members of a family of fourteen children, of whom she was the last survivor. They settled in the Clearfork neighborhood, southeast of Warrensburg, Missouri.
In 1840, she was married to Daniel Adams, who took her to the home he had prepared for her. The early pioneer prepared his home for his bride, building a snug house of logs at hand, with a large stone chimney and fireplace. Here, together by hard work and never flagging energy, reinforced by the dauntless courage that was their heritage from Revolutionary ancestry, they began a struggle that would dismay a young man and young woman of today, for it was literally hewing their way. The resources of the country were undeveloped. Every article for home use as well as for marketing had to be produced on the farm by the old-time methods. Any grain used for food must be ground by some simple process or taken to a mill and exchanged for flour or meal; every yard of material for clothing must be woven by the hands of the young wife or her helpers, from materials grown on the place and spun and otherwise prepared for use. All cooking was done on the coals of the fireplace, the fire of which must never be allowed to go out, for there were no matches to relight it.
Strenuous as was their life, they always found time for religious work and showed their freedom from narrowness and prejudice by zealous work in the two little churches that grew up in their neighborhood in the course of time, though neither was of their chosen denomination. They were charter members of Pleasant Grove Cumberland Presbyterian Church where, though it was some distance away, they always attended services as frequently as possible and always gave their portion toward its maintenance. From the organization of the Missouri Cumberland Presbyterian Sunday School Assembly until and including its twenty-second session, Grandma was a yearly attendant. The last year she was present at its meeting at Pertle Springs, her sight had failed, but nevertheless, she thoroughly enjoyed every service she was able to attend and always insisted upon a seat near the platform, 'to encourage the speaker,' as she said.
Grandma Adams was the mother of twelve children-- six sons and six daughters--all of them, with exception of one little daughter who died at the age of ten year, lived and attained a reasonable amount of success in life, as becomes the children of such parents. She also had thirty-eight grandchildren and thirty-three great grandchildren living at the time of her death, making a total of eighty-two living descendants. Eleven others had gone before her.
Not withstanding the fact that her children were at the age that calls for school advantages during the Civil War with all of its deprivations, she somehow managed to give them all a fair amount of education, following the firm conviction that an education was the best equipment for a young man or young woman's life's varied duties and calls. One of the strongest theories was that everyone, young people particularly, should embrace every opportunity for self-improvement as offered by reading, attending lectures and mingling with refined and educated people as well as attending school. A theory strengthened, no doubt, by the fact that during her own youth, educational advantages were extremely limited.
But Susan McCrary was endowed with a craving for knowledge that stopped at no obstacle, and largely by her own untiring efforts, acquired an education along certain lines, that would amaze the modern young woman with her great opportunities, this with practical information that came from her long years of experience in life's school, her mind a veritable storehouse of history and wisdom. For she could look back over the years which covered a period of development and formation of a new country, from a day of political unrest and unsettled government and most primitive implements and machinery, down to the present day, with its regulated government and every conceivable invention for man's convenience and comfort.
Grandma Adams was a thorough and constant student of the Bible, accepting literally the admonition to 'search the scriptures' and receiving its teachings without questions. After her sight failed several years ago, she found daily comfort in repeating long passages of her favorite chapters from memory.
Full as her heart and home always were, it never was too crowded to receive the lonely and troubled. Several orphan children have, for a time, found a home with her and each has gone out to make his or her way in the world, carrying with them a respect and reverence for Christian living that will never leave them, and strengthened and fortified by the lasting influence of a Christian home and the prayer of a strong Christian woman which to her latest day, never failed to include them, though not by name, yet her daily petition always included the phrase, 'Bless all those near and dear to us, and all others for whom we should pray.'
Truly, in the words of the wise, many of "Her children shall rise up and call her blessed."

"When Success Looked Like Failure", an article in "Vital Christianity," March 1, 1964, as told to Kenneth E. Jones by Ruby Jones:
"In the summer of 1893, D.S. Warner went to Wichita, Kansas, for a revival meeting. He later reported in a letter to the Gospel Trumpet that though he had preached for several weeks, there were no visible results. The letter implies that he was discouraged over the meeting. He thought that no one was converted, so he called the meeting a failure. However, that meeting which looked like a failure to Brother Warner set forces in motion which are still producing results today.
He did not know that Josie Adams, who lived near Caldwell, Kansas, had made her annual trip to Wichita to visit her sister and do some trading in the city. He did not know that Josie had attended the tent meeting her first night in town with her sister and brother-in-law. He did not know that Josie Adams was saved that night.
She later said that Brother Warner preached for two hours on the subject of sanctification. She was too timid to go to the altar for help, but she thought as she listened, 'That is just the kind of experience with God I want to have.'
When Josie Adams got back to her room that night, she knelt down by her bed to do what Brother Warner had said must be done. She consecrated herself to God, along with her family, her children, the farm, her chickens, and everything she could think of. She dedicated all to God and God blessed her as she prayed.
But suddenly as she prayed she seemed to hear God say to her, 'Will you tell Mrs. Dayton what has happened to you?' She was horrified. She was only a poor farmer's wife, and extremely timid. But Mrs. Dayton, her neighbor, was a former schoolteacher, and the wife of the richest man in the county. Mr. Dayton was chairman of the school board. She could never, never talk to Mrs. Dayton about God. Besides, the Daytons did not care much about God and church. She could never talk to them about this!
She got up from her knees and sadly went to bed. It seemed that the spirit of prayer left her when she refused to promise to talk to her neighbor. It seemed to her that God was demanding an impossible thing.
But Josie did go back to the tent services, and she did two things which helped her: She bought the new book by William G. Schell, The Biblical Trace of the Church which was just off the press; and she subscribed to the Gospel Trumpet ten weeks for ten cents! And before she went back to the farm she had promised, in fear and trembling, that she would try to talk to Mrs Dayton about her new joy in the Lord. When she got home she prayed for grace to carry out her promise After much earnest prayer, she finally got courage to make the attempt. She went to the home of Mrs. Dayton for one of her infrequent visits. Mrs. Dayton, as always, was friendly, and Mrs. Adams, as always, was too timid to say more than a few words. But when she left, she did manage to leave on the table the book The Biblical Trace of the Church and some copies of the Gospel Trumpet. She went home wearing a heavy sense of failure.
Mrs. Dayton felt that this had been a rather strange visit. She liked Mrs. Adams, but wondered at her timidity. And it seemed that Mrs. Adams was more nervous than usual today! She picked up the things her neighbor had left and put them out of sight somewhere, thinking as she did that her poor neighbor seemed to have gotten mixed up with some religious fanatics.
But God works in mysterious ways. Not long after this, Mrs. Dayton became very ill. One day during her illness her infidel husband rose from his chair by her bedside and went outside. He opened the door which he had just shut behind him and said to his wife, 'Maybe you ought to read that book Mrs. Adams gave you.' This puzzled Mrs. Dayton. Her husband was an infidel, but he was an avid reader. But why would he recommend a religious book to her? To find out, and to pass the time in her illness she got the book down and began to read.
She read with interest, but without really believing what she read. And when she came to the section on divine healing she was sure that the author was not quoting the Bible correctly, for such a thing could not possible be true! She got down a Bible and looked up the references, sure that she would prove the author guilty of misquoting.
When she found that the Bible did speak of the power of God to heal, and that it gave no indication that healing was for the people of only one age of history, but for all, she wondered if it could be so. If it were true, why should she continue to suffer?
She knelt beside her bed hardly sure whether to doubt or to believe, and prayed something like this, 'O Lord, if it is true that it is your desire to heal some people today, please heal me!'
As she finished this short, hesitant prayer, the pain instantly left her. In the sudden joy of her release from pain, she grabbed up the little children, and ran across to tell a neighbor, Mrs. Hall. Mrs. Hall (mother of Wiley Hall, the Home Missionary to the Indians) was ill herself and under the care of a physician for what was then called 'consumption.' Mrs. Dayton read to Mrs. Hall from Schell's book while Mrs. Hall looked up the Scripture references as they came to them. Together they read and believed. So they prayed, and Mrs. Hall, too, was instantly and gloriously healed.
These two miraculous healings made firm believers of the women and started a long chain of events which has led to the the establishing of several churches and the salvation of hundreds who might otherwise have been eternally lost.
Mrs. Dayton later moved to Oklahoma City and worked tirelessly as a soul winner. In 1920 she made a list of 120 persons who had been saved as a direct result of the conversion of Josie Adams in that revival which D.S. Warner called a failure. The number is still growing and includes many preachers. Mrs. Dayton's daughter, Ruby, married a minister, T.A. Jones, and is herself a minister, serving the church at Hebert, Louisiana. Mrs. Jones has often told this story to her son, Kenneth, who is now teaching in Gulf Coast Bible College.
As long as we are serving God, we should be slow to call our work a failure. Sometimes success looks exactly like failure."
Josie passed away at the age of 47, six years after sharing her faith with Mrs. Dayton. When Josie was on her death bed she was reported to have seen two angels seated on her bed waiting to take her home.

Notes for GEORGE WASHINGTON HUFFMAN:
George participated in a land run in Oklahoma in September 1893 on the Cherokee Strip and was awarded a claim. George's grandson recalls that George had scoped out which lot was optimal prior to the run. The day of the race, all of the would-be landowners lined up around the perimeter of the strip, waiting for the gun to be fired, signaling the opening of the territory. George ran to his preferred lot, but another man had already pounded his stake into the ground. The man told George of another lot, not too far away, that was also a good choice. George ran to that property, only to find a stake driven there, also. However, the letter of the law required that to secure a lot, an individual needed to plow a strip of land prior to claiming ownership. The owner of the stake, had inadvertently forgotten that requirement in his haste to fetch his family and show them their new lot. George hammered in his own stake, plowed a strip of sod, and claimed the land as his.
The following is an excerpt from The History of Sumner County, Kansas, and is a story told by Mrs. E. Glover:
"During the summer of 1893 people came from all over the United States and even Canada. They camped along the line, in tents, covered wagons, some in the open as the weather was warm, waiting for the opening of the strip.
The big day, September 16, arrived and at breakfast Father Glover, a man in late 70's and a bad heart, announced he was going to make the race. We all looked at each other, then as a chorus said, "You can't, you'll get killed, there isn't a safe horse for you to ride." Have you ever tried to change the mind of a Scotch-Irishman? Don't, it can't be done.
You have seen pictures of vast armies; add to that every kind of vehicle ever heard of, lumber wagons, buggies, bicycles, wheelbarrows, men on horseback, muleback and on foot, waiting for the gun to be fired to open the great race for free land. The people were packed so tight you wondered if they could ever start running. Ten minutes after the gun was fired, there was hardly anyone in sight.
Ed saddled the safest horse for his father, stayed with him until they crossed a deep ravine, turned and waved his hat to me.
One claim taken by Aunt Sally Hathaway caused all to rejoice. Widowed, with a young deserving son, Sally had broken her hip. She was sure that she and her son could make a living if they could get a claim. Neighbors loaded Sally's wheelchair in her wagon and drove her to the line. When the gun sounded, the soldiers picked her up and set her over the line on a good claim.
Father Glover said he was only going as far as Spring Creek, about three miles from the line, but at five o'clock we had heard nothing from him and we were worried. A friend from Perth, Kansas, who had driven down to watch the race, said he would drive to help us find him. I fixed a lunch and we started out. We had no trouble finding Father Glover sitting under a tree. I asked him where his horse was. He said, "I turned him loose, he'll go home." He ate his lunch.
I said, "Let's go home now." He used his favorite by-word, "By ganny, I'm not going home and lose my claim." "But Father, you've not food or blankets," I replied. "By ganny, if I just had some matches and some smoking tobacco I'd be all right."
We left the old gentleman under his tree and started home. Our friend had 20 miles to drive and went home. Mother Glover was almost crying as she said, "What shall we do?" I said, "I'll see if I can get one of the work horses in the corral." I got a bucket of feed and called; soon old Deck came in and I shut the gate. He had never been hitched to anything smaller than a lumber wagon or a threshing machine. I think it was the first time a woman had ever touched him. I chased him around and around; I finally got hold of the ring of his halter. He lifted me off my feet and around we went. I kept talking to him and telling him what a nice hoss he wasn't and that he must help me. All at once he gave a big snort, and gave up. I tied him to the fence and went to get the buggy harness.
I had forgotten that they kept the harness locked up and I could not find the key. The man we were renting our farm from lived in Ohio and had reserved a room in the house to store personal things in. I knew that in his closet was a silver mounted single harness. I got it out, looked at it; it was for a small horse and Deck weighed 1800 pounds. I unbuckled every buckle in the harness, let it out as far as possible and got the harness on Deck. Then I remembered that the buggy was locked up too. I looked around and found a two-wheeled cart…it looked like a toy beside Deck but I hitched him to it anyway.
Mother Glover had fixed up food, coffee, tobacco and matches, and away I went with two good blankets for a bed. I left the old gentleman happy, telling him I would be after him the next day.
Ed and his brother came in at midnight and told us to pack up all the food we had cooked, as we were starting for the land office. The staked claim was five and one half miles south of the state line.
My father (Ball) had followed the race with food and a barrel of water for the horses. He found the boys and while they were waiting a young man came to them and asked, "Which way do these claims run and where are the corner stones?" Ed showed him his stake and corner stone. The young fellow said, "I'll stick my stake on the quarter next to you." They gave him food and coffee but Ed had an uneasy feeling about him.
While the boys were loading the wagons with feed for the horses, mother and I baked several pans of biscuits, packed coffee and ham and about 4:00 a.m. they were on their way to the land office, to find thousands ahead of them. They were told that it would be at least four weeks before their numbers were called.
The next few weeks were most trying for the would-be homesteaders. Ed had contracted typhoid fever and in his delirium raved about the young man who had his claim. I called on a lawyer who advised that they get improvements on their claim at once.
Mother Ball and Mother Glover took over the care of the young one and other household tasks while the two fathers, Jim, and neighbors loaded the granary on two wagons and took it to the claim, I hired a man to plow ten acres and dig a well.
Much before the doctors thought he should, Ed went to the land office and found that the young stranger who was so interested in the claim had filed on their land about an hour before. They moved at once, a bed, two chairs, a few dishes, a stove for heating and cooking. So it was that they established their residence on the claim in Oklahoma.
Our contester established himself on the other corner of the claim. He would come over and hang around. We knew he wanted to sell out and was wondering how much to ask. We had saved up some money to build a small house when and if we got a claim. But we could not build, do fencing, plant trees and an orchard while this man had the filing.
Ed and I debated what was best to do. I said we should buy him off. Ed asked, "What with?" and I said, "The house money." He looked at me and said, "Honey, do you realize that we would have to live in the shack until we could save more money?" I said, "I'm game if you are." We bought the man off for $350.00 and had enough left to make the shack more livable. You would be surprised how cozy it was, and we with our two-year-old son were settled on our own land.
The race into the Cherokee Strip was over and the settlers became neighbors; people who had faith in God and themselves."
George and Lena lost the farm in the Depression. George had loaned money to his son-in-law, Elmer Manny, to purchase a threshing machine. When the loan was not able to be repaid, George wasn't able to pay the taxes on his farm. They still lived on the farm, renting it back from the new owner.
The 1900 census (T-1066, Roll 17), states George as living in Hickory Township in Grant County, Oklahoma. His occupation is farmer and it states that he owns the farm on which they live.
The 1910 census finds George living in Hickory Township in Grant County. His occupation is farmer and it states that he owns the farm on which they live.

When Archie was still young, he and his brothers were out playing, and he picked up a rattlesnake. The snake bit his palm. They called the doctor. The doctor supposedly was "not right in the head", having had his buggy overturn in a creek, and having been submerged a little too long. Nevertheless, Archie survived to tell the tale to his grandchildren, using the small scar on his palm as evidence that the event actually took place.
