James Adams

James Adams who died Feb. 20th, aged nearly 90 years, was born in Brighton and nearly his entire life, with the exception of the last year which he spent in Guilford, was passed in Wellington. Mr. Adams' life was a rare example of an exemplary Christian and he was ready always to give a reason for "the faith that was in him" proving by his earnestness, not by words only but by daily living. His Bible was his daily companion and most precious possession and he could repeat many of its chapters. He is survived by seven children: E.E. Adams, Sangerville; Mrs. James Leighton, Dexter; Mrs. Fred Jenkins, L. J. Adams, Guilford; Mrs. Ivan Ham, Cambridge; Mrs. Everett Cook and Mrs. Fred Bell, Guilford.
