The OES visited Thomas Adams Cemetery on May 7, 2001. Thomas Adams Cemetery was founded in 1850 and the oldest date found on a tombstone was 1851. Records indicate the cemetery is also called Barbee Cemetery. All of the stones here were in good condition. One thing we noticed was there were no readily-identifiable graves of veterans within the cemetery. There were two separate conglomerations of graves, in the opposing corners of the cemetery's grounds. This may indicate these are two separate cemeteries, Thomas Adams and Barbee. We found the actual grave of Thomas Adams, who died on August 8, 1872. He was 66 years, 10 months and 11 days old when he died. Overall, this cemetery seems to be very well taken care of.
