George Adamson

As published in
"The City of Kenosha and Kenosha County Wisconsin: A Record of Settlement, Organization, Progress and Achievement"
by Frank H. Lyman Vol. 2, The S. J. Clarke Publishing Co., Chicago, 1916.




George Adamson was for a long period actively and prominently identified with farming interests, but to a considerable extent is now living retired. He has achieved success and deserves much credit therefor, as his prosperity has resulted entirely from his earnings and persistent efforts. Kenosha County numbers him among her native sons, his birth having occurred in Bristol township, August 3, 1872, his parents being George and Johanna (Guiennea) Adamson, the former a native of Dublin, Ireland.

In the common schools, George Adamson pursued his education to the age of seventeen years, and afterward worked with his father upon the old homestead farm until the latter's death save for a period of two years which he spent in Kenosha. He has always carried on general agricultural pursuits, working diligently to till and soil and produce crops adequate to the care and labor which he bestows on the fields. He has always fully realized the value of persistent industry and upon earnest effort has based his success. Year after year he continued to develop and improve his farm of one hundred and sixty acres until 1913, when he disposed of that property and bought five and one-half acres known as the Woodworth place.

On the 5th of October,1904, George Adamson was united in marrigae to Miss Lena Heller, a native of Glenhaven, Wisconsin, and a daughter of John Heller. To them have been born five sons: Joseph, Harry, Walter, George Jr., and Arthur. George Adamson votes with the Democratic party where national issues are involved, but at local elections supports the candidate whom he thinks best qualified for the office, regardless of party affiliation. He belongs to the Catholic church. From the age of seventeen years he has concentrated his efforts upon agricultural pursuits, and his success is the legitimate and merited reward of labor intelligently directed.
