Jane was predeceased by her husband, parents, two sisters, Mary Ann Jessup-Gunn and Betty Miller.

133 Obituary:

Adamsville Register, January, 1906. The People whose recollections extend back to the early settlement of this country are slowly but surely passing away. Among this number was the late George P. Adams, whose death occurred last Wednesday evening at the family residence about two miles east of town. He was the son of George W. Adams who came to Ohio in 1807 and to Muskingum county about five years later. After coming to this county George W. Adams married Christiana Wertz and one of the ten children from this union was George P. Adams, who born in Monroe township July 4, 1824, and whose death occurred as stated at the age of 81 years, 6 months and 20 days. Mr. Adams was married to Margaret Elizabeth Green November 7, 1850. There were four children born to this union three of whom with the widow survive andmourn the death of a beloved husband and an indulgent parent.. The children living are Henry A., Elias J., and Carlton P. Adams all residents of Salem township. One daughter died after reaching womanhood. Besides the widow and children, the deceased is survived by one brother, Martin Adams, of Charlton, Iowa; Mrs. Sarah Powelson, of Burnside, Ill.; Mrs.Allen bainter, of Zanesville; and Mrs. J. D. Hanks of this village. George P. Adams was one of the industrious, hardworking farmers who helped to transfer the extensive forests into fertile pasture fields. Being one of the number who spent his early life in Salem township he figured prominently among the farmers from 1850 until bowed with age he was compelled to relinquish his activity and give way to men of younger years. Few men were more ready to do a neighborly kindness than Mr. Adams, and his genteel manners and pleasant addresses made him a man of easy approach and an agreeable companion. Through affliction and adversity he continued this pleasing disposition until the last spark of life had fled. At the age of 16, Mr. Adams became a member of the New Hope Evangelical Lutheran church and continued a worshiper with that society until his death. He was a firm believer in the scriptures and selected a beautiful passage from the bible which he requested be used as a text at his funeral. It was from Romans 8;18. "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." Rev. J. G. Gamble, pastor of the Adamsville M. E. church conducted the services and preached an interesting and instructive sermon from the text given above. The services took place at the New Hope Lutheran church Friday at 10:30 a.m. Interment was made in the cemetery at that place.

147 The "History of Muskingum County, Ohio" by J. F. Everhart discusses George's son William and in that context is stated, "William W. Washington, a retired farmer, residing in Adamsville, Salem township, Muskingum county, Ohio, was born in Monroe township of this county, but when he was six years of age his parents, George and Christina (Werts) Adams, moved to Salem township. The father was a native of Virginia, born in Loudoun county in 1788, Febuary 12, and was a son of William Adams, who died in Virginia. George Adams came to Muskingum county in 1807, and at the opening of the War of 1812 went to Virginia, where he enlisted in the army. After the war he married and returned to Muskingum county, passing the remainder of his days in Monroe and Salem townships. His wife died in 1873, and he followed her to the grave two years later. Both were members of the Lutheran church. Their family consisted of the following children: Helen, Susan, William W., George, Elizabeth, Mary, John, Sarah and Margaret. The father followed agricultural pursuits all his life, and became a prosperous man. In politics he was a democrat."

From this sketch we can discern that George must have stayed for some time with his parents before returning to Ohio. He either met or renewed a childhood aquaintence with Christina as his father, according to the 1810 census, lived very close to Christina's cousins, Conrad and Adam Werts. Since he had already been to Ohio, he was probably the catalyst for Christina's family to follow them back to Ohio.

From this we also learn the date of 1875 for his death is the correct one which would make the birth date in the records of New Lutheran Church in Montegomery County, correct as his birth being Feb 12, 1789. It actually states his birth was Feb 21 but the calculation of his death from the revised date would make it Feb 12 which agrees with the "History of Muskingum County, Ohio" date. That year was given as 1788 but the re-calculation and the church records both give 1789 so we will use that as the true date of birth.

It has been suggested that George and Christina came back to Ohio in 1814, the year of their marriage, but a record of Christening for their Daughter Helen (Hilena) is found in New Jerusalem Lutheran Church in Lovettsville, Loudoun County, VA. in Dec 3 1815 so it would have been doubtful they would have returned until after that winter, probably in the spring of 1816.

According to the 1820 Census he was living in Munroe (sic) township. It seems Christine lied about her age as she is listed in the 16-18 column, or the census taker made a mistake. By 1830 he is found in the Salem township census listing.

In the records of New Jerusalem Lutheran Church in Lovettsville, Loudoun County, VA., there is also listed a Thomas Adams marrying a Anna Spring, 2 Nov 1813. This is right around the same time as George so Thomas is a possible brother to George.
