Notes
a. Note:   [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [roberts.GED] [debbief56.ged] John Adams, 2nd President, Federalist, was a great grandson of Henry Adams, who came from England in 1636. He graduated from Harvard in 1755 and then taught school and studied law. He married Abagail Smith in 1764. In 1765 he argued against taxation without representation before the royal governor. In 1770 he successfully defended in court the British soldiers who fired on civilians in the Boston Massacre. He was a delegate to the Continental Congress and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. In 1778, Congress sent Adams and John Jay to join Benjamin Franklin as a diplomatic representatives in Europe. Because he ran second to Washington in ElectoralCollege balloting in February 1789, Adams became the nation's first Vice President; he was reelected in 1792. In 1796 Adams was chosen president by the electors. His administration was marked by rivalry with Alexander Hamilton and a crisis in U.S. - French relations. He was extraordinarily unpopular for securing passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798. His foreign policy contributed significantly to the election of Thomas Jefferson in 1800. Adams lived for a quarter century after he left office, during which time he wrote extensively. He died July 4, 1826, on the same day as Thomas Jefferson -- the precise 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. President John Adams is the 3rd cousin, 6 times removed, of Raymond Downing, David L. Downing, Rudolph A. Downing, Jr., and Jean Downing Wiley.
