Richard J. Adams (Born in Cavendish, Vermont May 3, 1833 - Died November 19, 1912 in Palatka, Florida)came to Palatka, Florida in October of 1856 to assist his Brother in Law, Hubbard H. Hart on his Stage Line from Palatka to Tampa. When the war began, he joined Norton's Company at Palatka, but was immediately detached as Wagon Master. He was transferred to Company H. Second Florida Calvary when the Norton Company went to Virginia. He later served in the 7th Florida Infantry Regiment.


He hauled mostly Blockage Goods to Lake City, but was present at St. Johns Bluff, where he saved his wagon when the Confederates retreated. He arrived at Olustee the day after that battle to assist with the wounded. He hauled machinery from the Federal Gun Boat Columbine to Lake City after it was captured by Capt. Dickenson near Horse Landing. The Columbine was then burned to prevent re-capture by the Federals.

The immediate superiors at Lake City were Capt. R.R. Reid and Maj. H.R. Teasdale.


Adams was Captain on Hart Line Beats after the war until he married Emily F. Adams from Shady Dale, Ga. on September 21st, 1869, then in business for himself. They had one child, Richard F. Adams.



The 7th Infantry Regiment was organized at Gainesville, Florida, in April, 1862. Its companies were recruited in the counties of Bradford, Hillsborough, Alachua, Manatee, and Marion. During the war it served in R.C. Trigg's, Finley's, and J.A. Smith's Brigade, Army of Tennessee. The 7th took an active part in the arduous campaigns of the army from Chickamauga to Nashville, then fought its last battle at Bentonville. It sustained few casualties at Chickamauga and in December, 1863, totalled 278 men and 206 arms. The unit surrendered on April 26, 1865. Its commanders were Colonels Robert Bullock and Madison S. Perry, Lieutenant Colonel Tillman Ingram, and Major Nathan S. Blount.
