Clinton Register


Sunday morning J. W. ADAMS, a well-known farmer living northwest of Clinton,
died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. HUNSLEY, in the northwest part of the
city, aged 65. His health had been failing, and he went to Bloomington where a
specialist treated him for kidney and other troubles. As he received little
benefit, he returned to Clinton and had been with his daughter. Deceased was
born in Jefferson county, Indiana, November 15, 1846. September 15, 1869 he was
married to Miss Almira HARVEY, who died about six months ago. It is thought her
death hastened his death. Of the children born to them, the following are
living: Elmer, of Clinton; Mrs. Ida CLARK, Kilbourn, Ill.; Mrs. HUNLEY, Clinton;
Odell, Lane; Myrtle, William and Cecil at home. Except one year in St. Louis he
had lived in this county 25 years. He had been a member of the M. E. church over
thirty years. He was a member of the Odd Fellows and Red Men. Funeral services
were held Tuesday afternoon in the Methodist church, conducted by Rev. Flagge.
