Charles Willard Adams, a well known and progressive farmer of Union township, was born in Jefferson county, New York, August 21, 1849, the only son of Andrew and Olive (Demis) Adams, both natives of the state of New York. They came to Wisconsin in 1862 and first located in Chippewa county, where they lived for two years; they then came to Eau Claire county and for five years were engaged in farming on a rented place. In 1869 the father purchased 80 acres of land in the town of Union, which he cleared and improved and where he lived and farmed until his death at the age of 70 years, the death of the mother having occurred at the age of 72.

Charles Willard Adams has been a continuous resident of the town of Union since 1864 and has always followed farming as an occupation. He owns 80 acres of fine and well improved land, one 40 of which is a part of the old homestead and the other 40 which he acquired by purchase and with his own hands cleared and improved. He is well known in the county and is considered one of its substantial and public spirited citizens. He was married in 1875 to Sarah Decker, daughter of Peter Decker, of Elroy, Wis., who is a lady of refinement and culture.
