Dr. Elijah Adams was probably one of the most illustrious people buried in Putnam County.
He was not only a doctor but also a lawyer. He was admitted to the bar in 1795 in
Litchfield and was of the firm of Adams and Cole in 1807 in Kingston. His wife Minerva
died in 1800 in Litchfield but after Minerva's death he must have remarried since he
had children born in the intervening decade. He returned to Lichfield and "formerly
of Kingston" remarried there in1809 Aurelia Carrinton. He remained through the 1810
census. He was in Fishkill in 1820 and thence to Geneva. In 1830 where a daughter was
married he was called "Dr. Elijah Adams of Catlin". The following year his
second daughter Mary (1802-1831) died in Catlin. Elijah was called "late of Geneva
and formerly of Fishkill". He subsequently moved to Carmel where he died in 1838.
His father Andrew Adams was a member of Congress and Chief Justice of the State of
Connecticut. Elijah's brother Andrew Jr. died in Litchfield but his widow and two
married daughters are buried in Rhinebeck. Dr. Elijah Adams had two uncles, Elijah (who
was not of Coventry CT) and Lemuel of whom no trace found. Another uncle Dr. Samuel Adams
of Ticonderoga joined the Canadians in 1776 as Capt. and scout with his three sons leading
a party of 60 men. He died in Canada.
When Dr.Elijah Adams died in 1838 in Carmel, his death was reported in the NYC and
Morristown NJ newspapers. He is buried as Dr. Elijah Adams of Litchfield.
