Anna Adams --- Calumet County Reporter --- October 10, 1913

The news of a sad case of suicide reached the Times from Kiel. On Friday evening last Mrs. John Adams who resides on a farm in the town of New Holstein, went to Kiel and took her life by drowning in the Sheboygan River. Mrs. Adams left her home at 6:30 Friday evening accompanied by her thirteen year old daughter Alma. Before leaving she informed her husband that she was going to Hinzeville to surprise her mother, Mrs. John Jens, by a visit. When she and her daughter reached Kiel she instructed the girl to go to the home of her grandmother while she went over town to purchase some candy. That was the last seen of her alive. She did not put in an appearance at her mother's home and the family became alarmed and began to make inquiries. Saturday further inquires were made without result and on Sunday members of the family and friends began dragging the Sheboygan river. No trace of her body was found up to late hour Sunday night and on Monday the work of dragging the river was resumed and at 11:00 o'clock Monday morning the body was found near the spot where the body of young Heineberg, who was drowned while skating last winter, was found. The remains were taken to the undertaking establishment, prepared for burial and were then taken to the home of the heartbroken family.
Mrs. Adams had been in poor health for over a year and on several occasions had informed her husband that she would never get well. She would be melancholy at times but no one in the family suspected that she would lose her mind and take her own life. It is the theory that after sending her daughter to her mother's home she went to the east end of the village of Kiel and threw herself from the bridge into the water.
Anna Margaretha Jens was born in the town of New Holstein Aug. 14, 1873, and after completing the district school attended the Kiel graded school from which she graduated. Later she attended Oshkosh Normal with the view of taking up a profession of teacher, but seventeen years ago this month she was married to John Adam and they went to live on a farm. She was highly respected by those who knew her. The funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon at New Holstein with interment in the village cemetery. She is survived by a husband and eight children, the oldest being sixteen and the youngest one year old. She is also survived by her parents, one brother Herman Jens, and two sisters, Mrs. Herman Bunge and Mrs. John Janty of the town of New Holstein
