John Adams, Sr. (February 8, 1691 – May 25, 1761) was the father of the second U.S. President, John Adams,[1] and grandfather of the sixth President, John Quincy Adams. He was, in turn, a fifth-generation descendant of Henry Adams, who emigrated from Braintree, Essex, in England to Massachusetts Bay Colony in about 1638. He was also descended from John and Priscilla Alden.[2] John Adams, Sr. worked as a farmer and cobbler (also called a cord-wainer or shoemaker) for most of his life.[1]

Adams' descendants include many prominent persons in American history, and his home is a National Park, the Adams National Historical Park. Not only was he the father and grandfather of presidents; he also was a first cousin, once removed, of patriot Samuel Adams.
