(HI) Ebenezer, son of Jonathan and Mary
(Nichols) Stanwood, was born in Gloucester,
June 5, 1699, and was progenitor of the Ips-
wich branch of the family. Evidently he
was a man of considerable enterprise, for at
the time of his death his estate inventoried at
two hundred and thirty-five pounds, a part of
his property consisting of fishing craft and
boats. The Gloucester records mention that

"Ebenezer Stanwood, aged year. Dyed

Sept. 9, 1727." His wife was Hannah War-
ner, the intentions of their marriage being
recorded October 26, 1723. Children: i.

2. William, July 18, 1726. 3. Anna, Decem-
ber 24, 1727, about three months after the
death of her father.

(IV) Ebenezer (2), son of Ebenezer (i)
and Hannah (Warner) Stanwood, was born
in Ipswich, Massachusetts, October 11, 1724,
and died there December 29, 1798. Accord-
ing to a deed recorded in Salem, he was a
peruke-maker, and this trade he taught his
eldest son William, who afterward engaged



in the same business in Portsmouth, New
Hampshire. He married (intentions) January
II, 1744, Sarah Wilcomb, of Ipswich, daugh-
ter of William and Charity (Dod) Wilcomb.
Her father was a fisherman, born on the Isle
of Shoals, but was brought to Ipswich when
very young and was placed under the guard-
ianship of Henry Spiller. In 1765 Ebenezer
Stanwood's land in Ipswich, on which his
house stood, lay adjoining lands of John Pin-
dar and ^Ir. Dummer Jewett. His wife Sarah,
mother of all of his children, died, about 1760,
for on April 15 of the same year an Ebenezer
Stanwood, supposed to have been the same,
married ilrs. Thankful Smith. She died July

9, 1787. Children: i. William, baptized No-
vember 2, 1746. 2. Ebenezer, baptized De-
cember 2"/. 1747; a soldier of the revolution.

uary 12, 1752, died April 19, 1816. 5. Isaac,

(\ ) Captain Isaac, son of Ebenezer (2)
and Sarah (Wilcomb) Stanwood. was born
in Ipswich. May 2, 1755, and died December
15, 1821. On January 24, 1775, he was en-
rolled among the Ipswich minutemen, and
marched as a private in Captain Nathaniel
Wade's company on the occasion of the alarm
at Lexington, April 19, 1775. On the follow-
ing day the company was ordered to Salem,
thence to Ipswich, and from there to Cam-
bridge. He remained in the service until May

10, 1775. In business life Captain Stanwood
was a trader, and apparently had much to do
with business matters in Portsmouth, New
Hampshire, where iiis brother William was
settled. On October 16, 1778, the provincial
authorities gave orders to the maritime office
"to clear out Isaac Stanwood for Ipswich,
with one hundred bushels of corn." He was
blind before he died, with cataracts on both
eyes. He lived in a house which was still
standing in 1898, on what now is Green street,
Ipswich, but which then was known as Green
lane. Captain Stanwood married, February
26, 1778, Eunice, daughter of John Hodgkins,
of Ipswich, who gave to his son-in-law a fam-
ily Bible which, with its entries of Captain
Stanwood's own handwriting, is now in pos-
session of one of the Stanwood descendants.

Ill which he was formed. In Scotch tiie name
was Mac.\tlam ami by dropping the prefix it
became Adams. In Wales it was Ap Adam,
i.e., son of Adam. It has been written in
various ways : .Xddam. Addom. Addum, Adorn
and Adiini. In groping sometimes blindly
amid the musty realms of long ago, seeking
to supply the missing link that will forge the
chain of genealogical succession, we are led to
quote our beloved Whitlier:

"Lift wc the twIllBht curtains of the Past,
And, turnlDR from familiar sight and sound.
Sadly and full of reverence let us cast
A glance upon Tradition'.s shadowy ground.
Led bv the few pale llfihts which, glimmering round.
That dim. Mranse land of Eld. seen dying fast;
And thai which history gives not to the eye.
The faded coloring of Time's tapestry.
Let fancy, with her dream-tipped brush, supply."

( I ) Abraham Adams was in Falmouth,
Maine, before i6C6. for in that year he re-
ceived coveyance of an island of fifty-three
acres from his wife's mother. Mrs. Arthur
Macworth. He married the daughter of Ar-
thur Macworth, an early settler of Falmouth,
near the mouth of the Presflmpscott river, as
indeed Abraham Iiimself was, and probably
came directly from England to America. Ar-
thur Macworth arrived in this country at
Saco, Maine, in company with Richard Vines
in 1630. He married, in London, Jane, daugh-
ter of Samuel Andrews.

(II) John Adams, of Falmouth, was prob-
ably the son of Abraham and Sarah (Mac-
worth) Adams. He had a son Benjamin
who removed to Gorham, Maine, and married
Elizabeth, daughter of Nathaniel and Eliza-
beth Frost, of Gorham.

(III) The balance of probabilities lead us
to believe that Joshua Adams was also son
of John Adams, mentioned above. lie mar-
ried (first) Hannah, daughter of Nathaniel
and Elizabeth Frost, and a sister of I5enja-

a prominent man in the community in which
he resided, and was not only Squire Adams,

His commission as justice of the peace is dated



February 19, 1801, and signed by Governor
Green. He was commissioned colonel of the
Seventh Regiment, Maine Militia, August,
1821. His commission as postmaster of

(\') Hon. James, son of Isaac and Sybil
(Drew) Adams, was born in L'nity, Maine,
January 13, 1836. A leading newspaper of the
state has this to say of him : "His early boy-
hood w-as spent on the farm and what school-
ing he obtained was from the country schools
of that day. He attended Hampden Academy
for a short time. In April, 1852, he left his
home in Unity and went to Augusta, where
he worked for two years, laying the foundation
for his later business career. September, 1854,
Mr. Adams went to Lincoln to be with his
brother, the late Sprague Adams, of that city,
who was conducting a general store there.
Five years later, in April, 1859, Mr. Adams
commenced business in Bangor with his
brother, occupying a store in Granite block.
East Market square, the firm name being S.
& J. Adams. Mr. Adams carried on the busi-
ness, as Sprague Adams was carrying on the
business in Lincoln. In 1861 Sprague Adams
came to Bangor to live and resided here until
his death a few years ago. In March, 1862,
they moved their store to Lewis block on
Main street, where the business grew to large
proportions. January, i86g, George W.
Knight was admitted to the firm and the firm

name was changed to the S. & J. Adams &
Company. From this time on the business
kept growing steadily and the need of still
larger quarters became imperative. So the
Messrs. Ada'ms purchased the so-called I5il-
lings lot on Main street, and the handsome
granite building which still ornaments Main
street was built and occupied in January,
1872. In January, 1884, the Messrs. Adams
sold out their share in the business to Knight,
Rolfe & Emerson. Although prominent in the
business life of the city, Mr. Adams also found
time to serve the community in various pub-
lic capacities. He was a member of the city

supporter of Republican principles, and a very
influential manber of that party. Mr. Adams
was a trustee of the Hersey Fund to the First
Universalist Church of this city for more than
twenty-one years, and served in this connection
with rare fidelity. He was also a member of
the Mt. Hope Cemetery corporation, and many
of the improvements which have been made
in the past have been due to him. He was
prominently connected with the financial in-
stitutions of Bangor, and until obliged to re-
sign on account of ill health was vice-president
of the Eastern Trust & Banking Company
(since its organization) and trustee of the
Bangor Savings Bank for over a quarter of a
century. He was a past master of St. An-
drews Lodge, F. and A. M., and a member of

of the two persons who lost their lives in the
disaster. She was a young woman of beau-
tiful life and character, greatly beloved by all
who knew her. She was deeply interested in
Sunday school work and in that of the King's
