    • Source: Early Medway Settlers & Land Records -

      Stephen-5 (Obidiah-4, John-3, Edward-2, Henry-1) Adams, born in the New Grant in
      1729, lived and died in the place where he was born. Obidiah's house was on Adams Street, north side, about halfway between Winthrop and Summer Streets, a site now marked by some lilacs and bushes, and for many years was known as the Groehl place. In 1773, Stephen married Molly Littlefield.
      He served in the Revolution.
      Stephen Adams was the father of Laban Adams who ran the famous Lamb Tavern in Boston and later started the well-known Adams House. He was the grandfather of author William T. Adams - Oliver Optic - and has many notable descendants. When tea was prohibited in the Bay Colony, Stephen's wife had some of the contraband. She so desired some that one day she took some boiling water to the attic of her house, brewed some of the tabooed luxury, and quietly drank it.
      The chair that she used in the family pew in the old meeting house was given to
      the Medway Historical Society by Herbert Hixon, and bears the initials M A cut in the back.
      Stephen Adams died in 1795, and his widow died in 1813.

      Sarah 1773-1831 m. 1795 Jesse Coombs of Bellingham
