  • Notes 
    • Text from: Stanford Home Page Internet---Christian (Sanford) Adams was the daughter of Thomas and Christian (surname unknown) Sanford. She was probably born in Swansea, MA, and moved with her family to Mendon several years later. The family was very likely still in Mendon when she married. The Mendon vital records refer to the marriage, and give Obadiah's residence as Medway. They are both buried in Evergreen Cemetery, West Medway, under stones that still exist. Her stone says "In Memory of Christian Adams, wife of Obadiah Adams, who died (month) Ye 21, 1777 in Ye 80th year" (my photo of the stone is very poor). This indicates that she would have turned 81 within the following year, placing her birth in 1696-7. This corresponds well with birth records of her siblings:
      Elizabeth, b. 10/21/1693 (Swansea VRs)

      Sarah, b. 10/13/1694 (same; m. Daniel Adams, ca. 1712)

      Christian (Swansea birth records for first names starting with A-C are missing), b. 1696-7

      Bathsheba, b. ca. 1699 (m. David Holmes of Woodstock, CT 1720)

      John, b. ca. 1703 (probably in Mendon), m. Huldah Wheelock, 1730

      Abigail, b. ca. 1705 (probably in Mendon), m. Moses Farnum, 1726
