Francis Percival Adams (29 Sep. 1849-10 Feb 1926)

Francis Percival Adams was born in Culpeper County, Virginia. He was the son of James Adams (1810-1870) and his wife, Missouri E. Kilby (1824-1870). Francis Adams attended the University of Virginia in session 48 (1871-1872). He later attended Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA.

By 1880, he had moved to Reno County, Kansas, and married Orpha C. McGowan (ca. 1859-ca. 1890) of Illinois. In the 1880 census they resided in Castleton, Kansas, where he established a medical practice. The couple had three children, Nellie I., Maude Ellen, and James A. Adams. Around 1892, Francis married his second wife, Nellie Kirkpatrick (1863-1933), and they had two children, Jean Orpha and Dorothy Adams. This family was living in Texas County, Missouri in 1900, in Washington County, Alabama in 1910, and in Okanogan County, Washington in 1920. In these later censuses, Dr. Adams is listed as a farmer.

Francis and Nellie K. Adams are buried in Omak Memorial Cemetery, Okanogan Co., Washington.
