    A note that was attached:
    note from Rhonda: there is no writing on the back of this photo. However, I believe it is of Thomas Quincy Adams for several reasons: 1. the type of photo and the clothes are representative of the style around the Civil War. 2. The photo was amongst other photos of Anna Isabelle Adams. 3. The eyes of the children are very similar in shape to Anna Isabelles'; I believe there is a strong enough family resemblance to her and a strong enough resemblance of the man to the males in my family to make this determination. If so, it is the only photo I've ever seen of Thomas Adams.

  • Notes 
    • 1870 Census Mill Creek, Washington, Kansas as Elizabeth ADAMS


    • Elizabeth was the second child of Thomas and Elizabeth Adams.
      Her parents took her overland in a covered wagon from Illinois to Kansas where they homesteaded in Washington County Kansas in 1868. During the school term, she attended the Bales School, Walking two miles to the school. She was a great help at home taking care of the smaller children while her mother was away nursing the sick.
      She was united in marriage with William Henery Harlow.
      After their marriage, they lived on farms in Washington County. They did not have too muchy success with farming, so Bill started working on railroad construction. He helped to build the grade for the track from Fairbury to Grand Island, Nebraska. While he was away, Elizabeth took care of the farm and the children. She was very active in church work. About fifteen years after their marriage they moved to New York where they again tried farming. After a few years they returned to Washington County, Kansas, where they farmed. They later moved to Jewell County where Elizabeth died on a farm near North Branch. William was left with seven children at home. He kept his family togrther but was forced to give up farming. He moved his family to Johnstown, Colorado where he secured work in a sugar refinery.
