About Elizabeth Adams

Life in New England: John Adams came to Plymouth Colony aboard the Fortune in November 1621. Ellen Newton (also called Helen and Elinor) arrived in the summer of 1623, either aboard the Anne or Little James. The division of cattle of May 1627 listed “John Adams”“Eliner Adams” and “James Adams;” i has therefore long been assumed that John married Ellen Newton as she was the only woman of that name in the colony. The family stayed in Plymouth where John became a freeman. Family: John Adams married Ellen Newton about 1625 in Plymouth. They had three children before his death in 1633. Elinor married (2) Kenelm Winslow in June 1634 and had four children. She was buried December 5, 1681, in Marshfield, “being 83 years old".
