The farming interests of Niles township find a worthy representative in Horace Adams, who is living on section 10. A native of New York, he was born in Genesee county on the 29th of March, 1834, and was of English descent in that paternal line. His father, Horace Adams, Sr., was a native of Oswego county, New York, and was a farmer by occupation. He devoted his entire life to tilling the soil and for a considerable period was a resident of Genesee county, New York, where he passed away, when about sixty-five years of age. The mother of our subject, Betsy Coy, born in Genesee county, New York, also died when sixty-five years of age. Both the father and mother were twice married, and from the first marriage of the father there were four children, while the mother by her first marriage had one child. By the second marriage there were seven children, and with one exception all reached manhood or womanhood. Horace Adams of this review was the second child born unto Horace and Betsy (Coy) Adams, and was reared in the place of his nativity, acquiring his education in the common schools. He remained at home, assisting in the farm work and in 1865 he went to Ohio, where he entered the services of the Fort Wayne Railroad, with which he was connected for about a year. In 1865 he bought the farm whereon he now resides and about 1866 he came to Berrien county. Here he has resided continuously since and has followed general farming, having now one hundred and twenty-eight acres of good land. All of the improvements theron he has made and the farm is now a valuable property. Mr. Adams was married in this county about 1868 to Miss Lottie Ford, a daughter of John Ford, and they have two children: Emma, now the wife of Edwin Bair, of Niles township, and Charles, who is living with his father. Mr. Adams has been a resident of Niles township for about forty-three years and has been closely associated with its history, for his interest in matters relating to the general welfare has been manifest in tangible effort for the public good. He has held various local offices in this township and is a member of the Ancient Order of United Workmen.
