Adams, Joseph D

Adams, Joseph D., a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Sout, was born in Williamsburg District, S. C., Dec. 26, 1820. He joined the Church in 1831, though he did not profess religion until 1837; removed to Georgia in 1835; became class leader in 1838; was licensed to exhort in 1841; and in 1846 united with the Georgia Conference. In 1858 he removed to Louisiana, and joined the Louisiana Conference, in which he labored until his death, July 26, 1873. Mr. Adams, as a preacher, was richly instructive, apt in illustration, and his sermons were always delivered with much unction. In exhortation and prayer he had few equals as to pathos and fervor; as a pastor he excelled. See Minutes of Annual Conferences of the M. E. Church, South, 1874 p. 383. ,
