BIRTH AND DEATH DATA: Evangeline Adams lied about her age. She lied consistently, yet in an inconsistent way.
Her lengthy AstroDatabank record, rated as DD for Dirty Data is
quoted here in its entirety:
"Time given in her autobiography "Bowl of
Heaven" (p.27, quotes of dad's diary.) Date given in astrological
literature; Karen Christino quotes same date (1868) in "A Geneological
History of Henry Adams of Braintree, MA"': same date on her death
certificate: same date in the 1900 Boston census.
"Other sources suggest different years of birth. In the 1910
Boston census, she claimed to be 47; in the l920 census, 49.
On her marriage certificate in 4/23, she gives age 50 (her husband also
gave a wrong birth year). Her obituary in the NY Times gives age 59 at
her death in l932. The NY Library catalog lists"1872?"
"Catherine V. Thompson wrote to M.A. 7/8-1933, "I notice that the Director of the
Evangeline Adams Studios states that she was born in 1868.
That is officially contradicted by the record in our Public Library
which says that Evangeline Smith Adams was born in 1859..... I met
Miss Adams in Boston in 1898 and have friends who knew her there
and we cannot understand why ten years have been taken off her age.
Records in our State House say that her husband, Mr. George Edwin Jordan,
Jr., was born June 20, 1890 at Foxboro, MA, and his mother who lives here
stated that his wife was 30 years older than himself."
Joan Lenert reported
that she had a chart for Adams for 1868 but for 9:30 AM EST. Lina
Accurso reported that her mom, born in 1871, was a contemporary of Adams.
Adams died 11/10/1933, 4:00 AM, New York, NY.

For many years, we did a summer vacation in Rockport and Gloucester,MA with our daughter and
granddaughters. In Gloucester, there was a used bookstore with an area just for occult books.
BTW: We collect signed and first edition books, so naturally I also do with the Astrology, etc.
Well, there on the shelf was a beautiful copy of Adams Astrology - Your Plan in the Sun for
$5. Immediately, I protected it as mine. Then, looking inside, it had the bookplate of Lothrop
Stoddard, then I saw writing on the next page and thought - oh shxx somebody wrote all over
Then, I looked closer:
Mr. Lothrop Stoddard
with great admiration
for your conservative
and radical mind.
What a find!!!
Stoddard was a Harvard- educated lawyer who wrote The Revolt Against Civilization in 1923 and Racial Realities in Europe.
I thought you may be interested to learn and possibly post that I own the Evangeline Adams library.
I also own her personal memorabila such as family scrap books and correspondence.
