Page 309, Historical Sketches of Andover, by Sarah Bailey, lists some of the provisions sent by the people of Andover during the Revolutionary War. Among them, “To pay Lieutenant John Adams for making six pairs of shoes”.

OCCUPATION[2]:
He was a cordwainer (shoemaker) and a soldier in the French and Indian War. Served at Cape Breton and Ticonderoga; also served in the Revolutionary War at Cambridge and at Saratoga. He was commissioned as a 1st Lt. in Captain Nathaniel Lovejoy’s Company; Col. Samuel Johnson’s Regiment in April 1775 and became a Captain of Militia.
