     Ann Adams was born circa 1805 in County Limerick, Ireland.1 She married Patrick Murnane, son of Thomas Murnane and Ellen _____, on 14 February 1831 in St. Ailbe's Church, Emly, County Tipperary, Ireland; Sponsors for the marriage were Thomas Adams and John Neill.2 Ann Adams died on 6 February 1878; This date of death (with no place indication) is given by J. Leo Culhane, grandson of Thomas Francis Murnane.3
     She witnessed the marriage of Johanna Murnane and Darby Day on 6 November 1841 in St. Ailbe's Church, Emly, County Tipperary, Ireland; The couple were married "in the presence of" James Murnane (Johanna's brother), Patrick Murnane, Johanna's brother and his wife Hannah Adams.4 Ann Adams immigrated with Patrick Murnane on 18 December 1849 in New York, New York, United States; Also listed in the record traveling with Patrick's family was a Widow Murnane (aged 54), her son Patrick (aged 20), and Margaret (aged 14). This is Nora Keaffe, widow of James Murnane. We assume that Patrick's other sons, John, Patrick and James, had died before 1849. His daughters, Mary, Ann and Elizabeth, may have died or may have married before 1849. Also listed is Michael Murnane: this person is not the son of Patrick and Ann, but rather the son of Michael and Julia English Murnane, Patrick's nephew.5 Ann Adams appeared on the census of 3 September 1850 in the household of Patrick Murnane in East Bloomfield Township, Ontario County, New York, United States; Michael Murnane is probably not the son of Patrick and Ann Murnane, but rather the son of Thomas and Johanna Malone Murnane.1 Ann Adams appeared on the census of 4 June 1860 in the household of Patrick Murnane in Henry, Marshall County, Illinois, United States.6 Ann Adams was listed as a godparent at the baptism of Mary Ann Murnane on 22 March 1863 in Henry, Marshall County, Illinois, United States; The baptism record shows that Mary Ann's parents were Michael Murnane and Ellen Whalen, and that the godparents were Patrick Green and Anna Adams. The child is probably illegitimate. Note that the 1900 Census lists her birthdate as March 1868.7
