    Notes 
    • Charles Adams was born and educated in Newburyport. He began to learn the cooper's trade with his father, Smith Adams, in about 1819. He married Sarah Noyes in 1826 and resided in part of David Hart's house on Franklin street till June 1828, when he moved into the two-story house in the court at the head of Franklin street, and lived there till his death in 1877. He served about seven years to learn his trade which he worked at more or less during his life. He and his wife were members of the Federal street church where Rev. Mr. Proudfit, Rev. Mr. Stearns and Rev. Mr. Vermilye and others, have been pastors of that church. They were married by the Rev. Charles William Milton who was pastor of the Prospect street church for about forty-three years. They lived together more than fifty years. I, Smith Adams, was their first child, and I remember when they had never owned a cook stove but used a brick fireplace and brick oven for heat and cooking purposes. I remember the andirons, crane and pothooks, the Dutch oven or bake-kettle, also the spider, skillet, and tea kettle. Near the fireplace stood the fire shovel and tongs, and nearby were hanging the bellows. On the mantel shelf were candles in brass candlesticks; also the snuffers and tray. A tin kitchen was used for roasting meats or fowl. The coffee was roasted over the fire in a kettle and ground in a coffee mill, which was held between the knees and turned with a crank. A flint, steel, tinder box, and a shaving that had been dipped in melted brimstone were the utensils used in making a fire in the morning. At this time there was no clock in the house, and we depended on my father's watch for the time. Afterward a clock was procured which is still, in 1895, in the house and keeping good time. He was the father of nine children, four boys and five girls, all of whom except the three oldest girls are, in 1895, still living.
