George F. Adams, in his early days, was a butcher and kept a grocery and dry good store in the town of Trappe for a number of years. He was also a Justice of Peace at the same time. Later he became a canner and then took an interest in farm machinery and became an agent for the International Harvester Co. for Talbot County. He sold the most tractors in one year and won a prize of $1000 and a red International truck.
[From a note probably sent to Maurice T. Adams from George F. Adams' daughter Elizabeth.]
He was an active Rebublican and at one time served in the house of delegates. Shown here in 1924 with his son Joseph demonstrating a tractor and set of plows.
