FRANKLIN ADAMS, farmer, P. O. Riceville, was born July 28, 1832, in Susquehanna County, Penn., son of Asa and Sibyl Adams, who came to this county about 1836, locating in Athens Township in 1837. The former died February 16, 1862, aged seventy-seven years; the latter died May 29, 1858. Here our subject grew up, enduring the hardships that fell to the lot of a pioneer’s son. He married, January 2, 1854, Ruth A. Parker, born in Cattaraugus County, N. Y., February 23, 1832, daughter of Thomas and Mary Parker. When eighteen years old she came to this county with her parents, from Chautauqua County, N.Y. Our subject and wife settled in this township after their marriage, chiefly devoting themselves to farming. They have acquired a comfortable home, having purchased, in 1874, the old Clement’s farm, where they now live. They have one son —Thomas Eugene—who married Viola Hall. They reside near Grand Valley, Warren Co., Penn., and have a family of four children: Jasper C., George M., Mattie B. and William F. Mrs. Franklin Adams is a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Our subject is an A. F. & A. M., and a member of the K. of H. He is a stanch Republican; a man of much influence in the community.
