MRS. SARETTA ADAMS.
Mrs. Saretta Adams, residing in Weiser, is one of the pioneer women of
Washington county whose long residence in this part of the state has made
her thoroughly familiar with every phase of its development and progress.
She is a native of Mount Vernon, Illinois, and a daughter of John B. and
Amanda (Moss) Piercy. The father was a native of Tennessee, while the mother's
birth occurred in Illinois.
It was in the latter state that Mrs. Adams was reared and in the public
schools she pursued her education. After reaching young womanhood she gave
her hand in marriage to William Gilderoy and in the following year they
started out to try their fortune in the west, crossing the plains to Oregon,
where they arrived after weary weeks of travel over the long stretches
of hot sand and through the mountain passes to the Pacific coast. They
settled in Umatilla county, Oregon, where they lived for a year and then
removed to Weiser, thus becoming residents of what is now Washington county,
Idaho. Here Mrs. Gilderoy was called upon to mourn the loss of her first
husband in 1893. They had become the parents of seven children, four of
whom are now living. After remai9ning a widow for three years the mother
was married in 1896 to William H. Adams, a native of Iowa, who came to
Idaho at an early day and took up the occupation of farming and stock raising
in this state. He, too, remained here until called to his final rest, his
death occurring in 1910.
Following the death of her second husband Mrs. Adams sold the home farm
and took up her abode in Weiser, where she now resides, having a most pleasant
and attractive residence. She still manages and attends to all of her business
affairs and displays enterprise and sound judgment in so doing. She is
a consistent and faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal church and
has always devoted much of her time to good works, ever reaching out a
helping hand to those in need of aid.
