Regarding the section "Last years and death"[edit]

"His last words included an acknowledgement of his longtime friend and rival: "Thomas Jefferson survives." Adams was unaware that Jefferson had died several hours before."
As I understand, most credible sources state that this claim is an urban legend, or an exaggeration at best - the most credible things I've read state that, at best, Adams may have muttered something about Jefferson on his deathbed, but he never made any statement about Jefferson surviving him. 134340Goat (talk) 16:14, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
