  • Notes 
    •        There is some confusion over the birth date of Barbara. The census records seem to be consistent in suggesting that she was born in 1849. However, there is a specific birth date given in Some Descendants of Jesse Adams, 1789-1844. I will leave the birth date as 1849 unless I am provided with other information. [DLL]
             In the 1850 U. S. Census, Barbara is listed as a one year old female. She was born in Illinois of parents who were born in Kentucky (father) and Illinois) mother. She lives with her parents (James W. and Lucinda), two siblings (George T., Jesse), and Isaac M. Henry, an 11 year old, who was born in Ohio, in Old town (South Side), McLean County, Illinois. [JasWA 01.]
             In the 1860 U. S. Federal Census, Barbara Elizabeth is an 11 year old female. She was born in Illinois of parents who were born in Kentucky (father) and Illinois (mother). She lives with her parents (James, Lucinda), two sisters (Mary, Martha) and three brothers (George, Jesse, James) in Hamilton Township, Hamilton County, Iowa. She has been in school and probably speaks, reads, and writes English. [JasWA 02.]
             In the 1870 U. S. Federal Census, Barbara Elizabeth Adams Root is a 20 year old female. She is married to Martin Luther Root. Her role is that of keeping house and being a mother for she has two children, Frank, a son, who is two years of age, and Sara, a daughter, who is 7 months. Both were born in Iowa. Her husband was born in New York; Barbara was born in Illinois. The family lives in Boone Township, Hamilton County, probably near Webster City, Iowa. [MLR 01.]
             In the 1880 U. S. Federal Census, Barbara Elizabeth Adams Root is a 31 year old white, married female. She is married to Martin Luther Root.
