      "James Pickett Adams, third child of Robert and Charlotte Pickett Adams,
      graduated at South Carolina College in 1848 with first honor in his
      class. Admitted to the Bar in 1850, he practiced law in Columbia, South
      Carolina for some years but ill health required the relinquishment of his
      profession. Elected to the House of Representatives in 1858; re-elected
      in 1860. Entered the Confederate service, served on the coast as a Major
      in command of a battalion of Cavalry; afterwards, he served in Virginia
      and elsewhere; was severely wounded at Trevillion Station while on the
      Staff of General M.C. Butler."
