W.S. Adams d. December 11, 1902

Death of W.S. Adams

W.S. Adams was born in Clark county, Ky., October 10, 1826; died in Pulaski county, Mo., December 11, 1902, aged 76 years, 2 months, and 1 day. He came with his parents from Kentucky to Clay county, Mo., in 1832, and removed to Pulaski county about the year 1867, where he lived until his death. He was married to Miss Martha Phillips in Ray county, Mo., December 24, 1851, to them were born six children, all of whom are still living, the children present at his death were, Thomas, Margie, Mrs. Stacy Harrison and Mrs. Mollie Miller, two of them living at Baxter Springs, Kan., were not present Rufus and Mrs. Nancy Miller. He has 19 grand children living.

Uncle Spencer was loved and respected by friends and neighbors and he will be missed in the community where he lived so long. He professed religion about 17 years ago but he never united with any church. He respected and loved all church going people. he gave up all for Jesus, was willing to die and requested that his children meet him in Heaven. He was a good man in his home, loved his family as he loved himself, and his place will be hard to fill in the community. His widow has the sympathy, love, and respect of everyone who is acquainted with her.

We have known Mr. Adams for about twenty years and in all that time he was ever the same kind hearted man and friend to us.


Pulaski County Democrat
