Adams, James (2)

Adams, James (2),

a Presbyterian minister, was born in Beaufort County, N. C., in 1800. He graduated at Princeton College, and also at the Theological Seminary. After entering the ministry, he labored as a missionary in destitute portions of Pennsylvania. A call was sent to: him from Monticello, Sullivan Co., N. Y., which he accepted, and he was ordained and installed pastor of the same. He was a ripe scholar and an eloquent preacher. As a pastor, the twenty-one years of service in this Church bear testimony to his fidelity. His health failing, he entered upon the duties of a large school in Jefferson County, N. Y., but he was obliged to relinquish it after six months. He died Feb. 7,1857. (W. P, S.)
