Searching for the Robert Adams (b. 1602) shears.

The shears Robert Adams used in his tailoring business are now (1885) in possession of Deborah Adams, wife of Rev. John Pike, of Rowley, and daughter of Col. Daniel Adams of Newbury. I saw and handled these shears at their house the 9th of Oct., 1873.--I. Smith Adams.

source: Newbury Adams Family Genealogy. Smith Adams.1895 Call Number R929.2A17

The shears with which Robert Adams wrought and which he brought with from England--a large pair, hand-made--are now in the possession of descendant, Stephen P. Hale of Newbury. The year of the preceding statement is unknown.

Robert Adams is the 9th great grandfather of the Scharinger cousins. E-mail the Webmaster with any information.
