Adams, Joseph (3)

Adams, Joseph (3), a Baptist minister, was born in Maine about 1780. He made a profession of his faith in Christ in the Methodist Church, but subsequently a change of sentiments led him to join a Baptist Church. He was ordained pastor of a church in Jay, Me., where he remained for fourteen years. After ten years, spent chiefly in labors as an itinerant minister, he returned in 1828 to the church of which he had been pastor in Jay, and continued in office for three years (1828-31). Resigning a second time, he gave himself more or less to itinerant work so long as lie was able to preach. He died in 1844. See Millett, Hist. of the Baptists in Maine, p. 433. (J- C. S.)
