HORSE RIDING INJURY IS FATAL TO ADAMS
Claude A. Adams, well known local meat cutter, died at 8:00 p.m. Wednesday in the Rideout Memorial hospital from injuries suffered Sunday when he was thrown from a horse and the animal is believed either to have struck him or stepped on him.
Adams was born in Honcut February 12, 1900 and was the son of Mrs. Elizabeth Adams of Marysville and the late William H. Adams who died several years ago. In addition to his mother, Adams is survived by his wife, Mabel Adams, and two sons, Alden and Billy Adams, all of Marysville; two sisters Mrs. Neva Romelsbacher of Meridian and Mrs. Rita Notestine of Marysville and a brother, Melvin Adams a Marysville florist.
Adams started to work as a meat cutter with Martin Sullivan, Sutter county probation officer, when the latter was operator of the Valley Meat Company. He followed that trade since that time and at the time of his injury was employed by William Maguire, operator of Marysville Meat Market.
Adams was a graduate of the Marysville High School. He was assistant chief's posse, an organization in which he took a leading part.
He was a member of the Elks Lodge, the local Foresters and Corinthian No. 9 Washington Chapter No. 13, and Marysville commandery, Knights Templar of Masons.
