THE MART HERALD
NOVEMBER 15, 1912
Rev. J. M. Adams, beloved pastor of the Methodist church in this city, died in the parsonage after a lingering illness of several months. The death of this good man and splendid citizen, although daily expected, was received with genuine regret by every citizen of Calvert, all of whom held him in the highest esteem and friendship, a remarkable exhibition of this feeling being shown Monday afternoon when the doors of every business establishment in this city were closed during the hours of the services and funeral. Another evidence of the high esteem in which deceased was held, was the large attendance of citizens at both the church and graveside.
The services, which were held in the church over which he had presided for three years, were simple and touching as were also those at the graveside, being fully in accord with the life and character of the deceased.
Interment was held at the old Mart Cemetery Monday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock.
The following visiting ministers were present: Rev. I.F. Betts, of Marlin; J.W. Bergin, of Marlin; Thomas, Brenham, Glenn Finn of Bryan; Whitehurst, Rockdale, Wootan, Rosebud.
An influential citizen, who was not identified with any branch of the church of God, said to the writer: " I have known Brother Adams, since he was a boy and I never heard a single word uttered against him, nor the slightest reflection on his moral character."
He loved his church with a sincere and unselfish love, and he trusted in his Lord with a simple and childlike faith that made him one of those of whom Christ said, "Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
