Published in the Pike County Press, Milford, PA, 1909 was a letter to the editor by Edward S. Cross about William Adams transcribed below:

In Memory of W. E. Adams,

Mr. Editor: I have recently learned of the great loss which the church, the community and society in Pike County sustained in the death, last autumn, of Mr. W.E. Adams, of Dingman's Ferry. To many, indeed, in that county, and elsewhere, the loss of one so able and amiable, so worthy and useful, will be felt as a personal loss. There are not very many men as worthy as he; and of those who are, there are few who are as thoroughly lovable. And among those who are both worthy and lovable, how few are found, who equal Mr. Adams in that which was, perhaps, his most individual distinction - the power of radiating from his countenance, his speech, his manner, his very presence, a sustained, and genial, and all-comforting sunshine - and that without effort, and almost unconsciously, May his memory and his example long be cherished, and may the Divine consolations be with the loved ones who survive him.

Edward S. Cross
