Henry Adamson Life Sketch

Henry Adamson's Life Sketch-from the repository of Mary Jane Green Gillman Born: 29 Dec 1807 Marr: 7 Mar 1835 Died: 3 Jan 1891 Henry Adamson was born on December 29, 1807 at Boreland, Fife, Scotland to Andrew Cunningham Adamson and Margaret Cunningham. Henry was a coal minder in Boreland, Fifeshire, Scotland. He married Margaret Nicholson at Dysart, Fife, Scotland on March 7, 1835. After hearing the gospel, Henry and Margaret were both baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. Henry was baptized on May 22, 1842 and Margaret on May 16, 1842. They Migrated to America with their family on board the ship 'Hudson,' from London, England. The Hudson set sail on June 3, 1864. It seems likely they worked and stayed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where some of the children (Margaret and John) had been living, having come to America earlier. The family stayed in Pennsylvania for two years before going west. On their trek to Utah, the family traveled to New York and through the Erie Canal to St. Louis. They went on to Council Bluffs and from there they walked to Utah. Henry Adamson and his family settled in American Fork, Utah for a time and then went to Franklin, Idaho, to take up land. When the state borders were determined they found themselves in the Idaho area. Margaret Nicholson died on September 2, 1889 and was buried in Franklin, Idaho. Henry died a few years later on January 3, 1891 and was also buried in Franklin, Idaho.

Life timeline of Henry Adamson

Henry Adamson was born on 29 Dec 1807
Henry Adamson was 5 years old when Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is first published in the United Kingdom. Jane Austen was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary, have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars.
Henry Adamson was 18 years old when The Erie Canal opens: Passage from Albany, New York to Lake Erie. The Erie Canal is a canal in New York, United States that is part of the east–west, cross-state route of the New York State Canal System. Originally, it ran 363 miles (584 km) from where Albany meets the Hudson River to where Buffalo meets Lake Erie. It was built to create a navigable water route from New York City and the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. When completed in 1825, it was the second longest canal in the world and greatly affected the development and economy of New York, New York City, and the United States.
Henry Adamson was 24 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Henry Adamson was 32 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Henry Adamson was 52 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Henry Adamson was 61 years old when Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, breaking away from the American Equal Rights Association which they had also previously founded. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.
Henry Adamson was 67 years old when Winston Churchill, English colonel, journalist, and politician, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1965) Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British politician, army officer, and writer, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party.
Henry Adamson was 79 years old when Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show opens in London. William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody was an American scout, bison hunter, and showman. He was born in Le Claire, Iowa Territory, but he lived for several years in his father's hometown in Toronto Township, Ontario, Canada, before the family returned to the Midwest and settled in the Kansas Territory.
Henry Adamson died on 3 Jan 1891 at the age of 83
