    Birth: May 4, 1814, Scotland Death: Aug. 4, 1881 Escalante Garfield County Utah, USA Born at Carron Ironworks, Stirlingshire, Scotland Son of James Adams and Margaret Barclay Married Mary Cook, 7 Feb 1835, Shotts, Lanarkshire, Scotland Married Lydia Catherine Mann, 30 May 1849, Council Point, Pottawattamie, Iowa Lydia Catherine Mann met David Barclay Adams soon after he arrived at Council Bluffs, Nebraska. He lost his wife and two little girls on the steamboat Mary coming down the Missouri River. They died of cholera and were buried in the river. The captain made them throw their bedding and most of the clothes in the river for they weren't allowed to land on the banks of the river on account of cholera. David was left with four motherless children and the baby was only a year old. After emmigrating to Utah with his new wife, Lydia, Brigahm Young asked David to go to Southern Utah after only being there a few days to start an iron business in that area. They moved to Cedar City and then to Beaver. They next moved to Adamsville, so named after David for he founded the town. There wasn't a church in Adamsville until 1868 so church was held at there home. David wasn't making much at the mine so it was hard to keep their little brood eating. Lydia had eleven children of her own and four step children. Most of the time all they had was bran bread and pig weeds. David was set apart as bishop of the Beaver Ward in 1869. They moved to Escalante in 1876 to help establish and build up these places and died there in 1881.
