Daughter of Michael and Elizabeth Butcher Hohf, Adaline moved with her family to Iowa when she was 10 years old. She attended Mount Morris College Academy, Mount Morris, Illinois (1881-82) (later merged with Manchester University), and for while taught in Iowa public schools. At Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, she edited Golden Dawn (1884) and Young Disciple (1885-88). She married musician and hymn-writer William Beery in 1888.
