About Charles Adams

Charles Adams' birth date is uncertain. Some sources say 1621 and others say 1645 either in England or New Hampshire. He married Rebecca Smith about 1665. They were the parents of Deliverance, Charles, Sarah, Mary, Samuel and Mercy (Marie Ursula).

On July 18, 1694, about 250 Abenaki Indians led by the French attacked several Oyster River settlements capturing or killing approximately 100 settlers and burning homes. Charles died in the Abenaki/French raid at Smith Garrison along with his wife and several children. (see Raid on Oyster River)
