Jesse Martin Adams1

M, ID# 3881, b. 29 December 1875, d. 10 May 1925
  • Other Names*: Jesse Adams, Jessie Martin Adams, Jessie Adams.7
  • Scrapbook*: The State Press.
    JESSE ADAMS.
    Two or three weeks ago a picture postcard came to State Press from Colombo, Ceylon. The date was March 24, and the sender was J. M. Adams, owner and publisher of the Plainview News. "Editors in Ceylon take elephants on subscription," Mr. Adams wrote. "In Texas the newspaper itself is about the only elephant the editor wants on his hands." That sort of pleasantry was characteristic of Jesse Adams. He was touring the world in a leisurely manner, and everywhere he enjoyed the amusing side of all his fresh contacts. Now the cables tell us Jesse Adams died in France, a few days ago, of a fever contracted in India. This is grievous news to the members of the Texas Press, particularly those who were best acquainted with him. Still relatively a young man, a vigorous and interesting writer, an energetic and successful man in business, and, better than all, a public-spirited and sincerely patriotic citizen, Jesse Adams was a Texan whose loss will be felt in the great new country where he lived and which he loved.8
  • Note*: In 1900 they were living in Coleman, Texas, where he was owner and publisher of the Comanche Chief. In January 1911 they moved to Plainview, Texas, where he published the Plainview News. He traveled in other countries and reported detailed accounts of the places he visited. On his last journey he came down with influenza in India but continued across the Holy Land and across the Mediterranean to France, where he died while hospitalized for pleurisy. He was a member of the Christian Church.4,9
