    Notes 
    • Capt. Simeon Adams spent his early life in his native town, Suffield, Conn.
             He was a soldier in the French and Indian war, was captured by the French and taken to Canada where he was ransomed and afterwards returned home.
             He enlisted again and was again taken prisoner, this time by the Indians, was again taken to Canada and again ransomed.
             In after years he was accustomed to say that during his captivity he fared as well with the Indians as with the French.
             After his final return from the war he married Susanna Underwood and lived for 18 years at Suffield.
             In 1783 he bought of Joseph Pease land in Marlboro, Vt. and probably removed to that place the same year. He took the freeman's oath in Marlboro in 1783.
             His relatives, Freegrace Adams and Ira Adams, had settled in Marlboro several years prior to this time. He accumulated considerable property and died at Marlboro, Vt. Aug. 1, 1803, aged 79.

      Birth date and marriage date are from record in the Adams family Bible. The
      town records are Nov. 4, 1724 and Jan. 28, 1766 ---- Wheeler Papers page 116 [4]
