Remarks:

Adamsville was one of the first two towns formed in Pinal County, Arizona. It was named for its original settler in 1866, Charles S. Adams. When a post office was established there in 1871, it was named Sanford, (for a Captain George B. Sanford of the First U.S. Cavalry), by a political enemy of Mr. Adams, Richard McCormick. Local residents continued to use the original name, causing confusion which existed until 1876, when the post office was discontinued.
