  2.   Adam Files was a native of Virginia, and emigrated to South Carolina at an early age. In the war of the Revolution, he manifested his love of liberty by joining his countrymen under General Pickens and upon all occasions showed his devotion to his country's cause by offering himself as a willing sacrifice upon her altar. At the memorable Battle of Cowpens he was one of the brave men under General Morgan that assisted in effecting total defeat of the British forces under Tarleton, and continued in the service of his country, when occasion offered until the colonies were acknowledged free, sovereign, and independent states. Between the two great political parties arrayed under Adams and Jefferson, he took the Jefferson side in politics and continued as a warm and consistent Democrat until his death. He embraced the Christian religion at an early age, was a consistent member of the Presbyterian Church for more than 40 years and continued a faithful follower of the Savior to the end. Being asked by a son, in his last moments, if he knew him, he made not an effort to answer. He was then asked if he knew Jesus. He motioned his head in assent, and with faint articulation said he did.
