Andrew Adams was born at Stratford, Connecticut, in January, 1736. Being of a very respectable family, he was thoroughly educated, and he graduated at Yale College in 1760. In 1764, Mr. Adams entered upon the practice of the law at Litchfield, in his native State. His success was immediate, and eminently honorable. His fine abilities were then devoted to the service of his country in council; for, having become an ardent Whig, he was elected to Congress soon after the great Declaration of Independence was given to the world. He was an active and useful member of that body.
