John W. Adams, a sterling planter of McLaren Township, was born in
this county March 13, 1851. His parents, Hiram G. and Eliza
Greer Adams, were natives, respectively, of Indiana and
Tennessee. To that worthy couple were born thirteen children,
seven of whom are now living, and all reside in this county. Hiram
Adams was one of the pioneers to this section, coming here from
Indiana in 1838, and from that early day made Conway County his
home till death called him to eternity in 1878, August 21. He took
an active part in the public affairs of his day and time, and was
a liberal supporter of schools and churches. He was a Royal Arch
Mason, and he and wife both members of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, South. Mrs. Adams died on March 21, 1884. Our subject
received his education at the schools of this county, and on
attaining his majority he began life for himself, by embarking in
a life of farming, with a team and one year's supply. In 1879 he
married Margaret Belson, a native of this State, and to this union
have been born five children, named Benjamin, Alta M., Libbie E.,
Thomas W., and Eliza M. From the limited start Mr. Adams has
increased and added to his possessions till he now owns 105 acres
of good land, has fifty acres under cultivation, with good
improvements, and well stocked. Mr. Adams has always been an
active man in the politics of McLaren Township, and has held the
office of Justice of Peace for six years. Politically he
affiliates with the Republican party, and in all matters of local
interest is always for those measures which promise the greatest
good. Family are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
