Body of Widow of Professor F.S. Williams Rests in Lakewood.
The funeral of Mrs. Adelia Earl Williams, formerly of Minneapolis, took place this afternoon from the residence of her son, L. D. Williams. 1301 Fifth street SE. Mrs. Williams died Dec. 26, at Wheeling, W. Va., where she was stopping with her daughter, Mrs. Marian L. Harper, after spending the summer at Minneapolis. Death was caused by la grippe, after a brief illness.
Mrs. Williams resided in Minneapolis for about fifteen years preceding the death of her husband, which occurred in this city in 1897. She was a member of Simpson Memorial M. E. church, and had a wide circle of friends. She was the widow of Professor Francis S. Williams, an educator of distinction, whose chief field of labor was in West Virginia. Mrs. Williams was herself a woman of high intellect and culture. She was also closely associated with her husband in his educational work. She was born at Lockport, N. Y., Jan. 10, 1825. Since the death of her husband, she has made her home most of the time in Washington, D. C., with her eldest daughter, Mrs. J. J. Glover, whose husband holds a prominent office in the department of justice; but her extensive family connections led her to divide her time with the members of her immediate family, living in widely different parts of the country, at Wheeling, Washington, Minneapolis, Denver and Grand Forks. Her children surviving her are as follows: L. D. Williams, Minneapolis; C. F. Williams, Grand Forks; Colonel Charles A. Williams. U. S. A., formerly in command at Fort Snelling, now at Fort Logan, Col.; W. F. Williams, Buffalo, Wyo.; Sylvester G. Williams, Denver; Mrs. Marian L. Harper, Wheeling, and Mrs. J. J. Glover, Washington, D. C. William Saeger of this city is a son-in-law.
The body of Mrs. Williams was brought from Wheeling to Minneapolis by her sons, L. D., Colonel C. A. and Sylvester C. Williams, who, with C. F. Williams and other local members of the family, were present at the services. Interment was at Lakewood, where the remains of her late husband are also interred.
