Samuel Adams

Contributor: Rittar Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Samuel Adams 1 Mar 1810 Raunds, England21 Dec 1898 Blackfoot, Idaho Samuel Adams was born 1 Mar 1810 in Raunds, Northampton, England. He married Phebe Ferry (Fairy) on 22 Mar 1833 in Raunds, Northampton, England. He was a shoemaker by trade. Samuel, the oldest son also learned the shoemaker trade. It is also reported the Eliza Emma, a younger daughter, made the uppers for the shoes ready to be tacked to the soles. They both learned the trade as young children. (Others of the children probably worked with their father, but there is no report of it.) His oldest son reported that his father Samuel loved to drink. The family was in very humble circumstances. Twelve children were born to this marriage: Samuel 16 May 1834, Sarah 1 Dec 1853, John 5 Feb 1837, Christianna 8 June 1838, MaryAnn 16 Nov 1839, Phoebe 26 Sep 1841, Elisabeth 16 June 1844, Eliza 4 Oct 1846 (died as a child), Eliza Emma 23 Jan 1848, Lot 5 Nov 1850, Mattha 4 May 1853, and Sarah 23 Nov 1855. The family belonged to the Church of England. The family had to walk a long way to Church. Samuel, the oldest child, remembers his father punishing him for speaking out of turn. The minister had finished the closing prayer of the service with “hey men”, but Samuel said “straw women.” This was a small thing, but it was enough to make the son Samuel dislike everything about the Church of England. Samuel and Phebe and the older children accepted the LDS missionaries and the Gospel and were baptized in 1851. They were very desirous to immigrate to Zion. Samuel, the oldest son succeeded in getting to Utah in 1853. At the age of 18, Samuel came to Zion with the Joseph A. Young Company. He located in Ogden. The daughter Eliza Emma joined the Church and was baptized November 5, 1861, at the age of 13. Due to severe sickness, Phebe, the mother, was stricken blind and four years later died. At that time Eliza Emma was left with the responsibility of caring for her father, the younger children, and the home. Eliza Emma, at the age of 20, came to Utah with a family by the name of Seargant. Eliza Emma married Martin Washburn Thomas (whom she met at Samuel’s home in Ogden) and moved to Richmond, Cache Valley, Utah in June of 1873. Samuel, the oldest son, sent for his brother Lot (Lott) and helped him come to Zion. Samuel and Lot (Lott) also left Ogden and moved to Richmond. Samuel and Lot pooled their savings and sent back to England for their father’s fare to America. The temptation was too great, and their father, being given to drink spent the money for a big spree. However, as soon as the sons could, they sent him a passport, and ticket to get him to America in 1880. Phebe, their mother, had died earlier. Samuel the father repented, gave up drinking, and wanted to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Zion. (Three other sisters and their husbands found employment in the east. They were bitter about the Church and never joined. In 1900 Samuel and Lot (Lott) made a trip back east to visit his sister. They were very friendly and most happy to see them but could not be converted to the Church.) The father, Samuel, came to Zion to live near (or with) his sons. The sons moved from Richmond to Riverside near Blackfoot, Bingham, Idaho, in 1885. They had to clear the land on their timber claim and build themselves a log house from cottonwood logs hauled from the Snake River. Until the log house was built, they lived in a dugout southeast of Riverside along the River road. When Samuel, the father, crossed the toll bridge west of Blackfoot, he said to Samuel and Lot, “Boys, this is goodly land. You and your families shall find good homes nearby. I feel this is the land of my dreams.” They brought with them seeds, starts of bushes, trees and anything that would contribute to the new home. Again they were required to establish a home in the wilderness. Like the other pioneers who came to Riverside in 1885, they planted 40 acres of timber, built ditches, and raised crops. They found time also to raise bees. Samuel, the father, lived in Riverside, near Blackfoot the rest of his life. He died 21 Dec 1898 in Blackfoot and was buried in Riverside, Bingham, Idaho. This history was compiled by Christy Monson from the History of Samuel Ferry (Fairy)Adams written by various family members and submitted as a DUP History by Elna Barnes Turner from Blackfoot. The history of Eliza Emma Adams was also used to compile this history. There is no author for it.

Life timeline of Samuel Adams

1810
Samuel Adams was born in 1810
Samuel Adams was 15 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.
Samuel Adams was 21 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.
Samuel Adams was 30 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.
Samuel Adams was 49 years old when Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. 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.
Samuel Adams was 59 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.
Samuel Adams was 64 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.
Samuel Adams was 73 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.
Samuel Adams died in 1898 at the age of 88
