About Anne "Annie" Brown Adams

Anne "Annie" Brown Adams was the daughter of abolitionist John Brown and his second wife Mary Ann Day Brown. Annie was well known for her role as a lookout at the Kennedy Farm in Maryland where her father planned the Harper's Ferry Raid that would make him famous. At age 16, she and sister-in-law Martha Brewster Brown lived with Brown's men at Kennedy Farmhouse and provided a sense of normalcy to the outsiders who may have otherwise been suspicious of Brown's activities.

After her father's death, Annie traveled with her mother Mary and some of her surviving siblings to live in California. She married Samuel Adams and together they had eight children.

As one of Brown's longest surviving children, Brown was a wealth of information about her father and the preparation for the Harper's Ferry raid. Her reminisces have provided current scholars with insight into her father's thoughts and actions. Annie's descendants continue to be active in celebrating her memory and her role in American history. http://www.alliesforfreedom.org/Annie_Brown_page.html
