About Nathaniel Adams

Died in defense of Fort Griswold, September 6, 1781

Parentage is based on the following (independent verification necessary):

"Nathaniel Adams lived in the section of Groton known as "Gungawamp," where in a thickly wooded valley is a rough uncut slab of granite upon which are rudely engraved the initials N A. Tradition says this stone was prepared by Adams previous to his death and after that event in accordance with his desire it was placed by his friends at his grave. He is said by his descendants to have been at one time wealthy but reduced to straitened circumstances by his patriotism and to have been well known at that time as a brother of John Adams who afterward became second President of the United States." source: The Battle of Groton Heights: A Collection of Narratives, Official Reports ...By William Wallace Harris p. 260

"Elizabeth Adams widow of Nathaniel Adams a cloather was left with five children under the age of eleven years a small house and a small piece of rocky land under no improvement nor worth improving lived wholly by his trade" The Battle of Groton Heights: A Collection of Narratives, Official Reports ...By William Wallace Harris, p. 137
