|Birth: ||Jun. 22, 1870|

Isaac Oliver Adams was born June 22, 1870, in Hopkins, Mo., the son of James A. and Martha Adams, and passed on to the better world May 31, 1941. He was married to Emma Cummings, Dec. 11, 1892, and two children were born to them, Everett R., of Novinger, Mo., and Florence M. Boden, of Centerville, Iowa.
Mr. Adams' mother died when he was seven years old, and he was given a home by his mother's brother and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Herbert, who cared for him as their own.
He began work as a farm hand in Taylor county, Ia., at a very early age, later coming to Bunch in Davis county, where he and his wife lived on a farm their entire wedded life.
After the death of his wife in July, 1937, he made his home largely with his son, going to the home of his daughter about ten months ago, and was there when he died.
Ike, as he was called by all who knew him, lived a simple, unpretentious life, the Golden Rule being his life's motto.
He served his neighbors as school director, and township trustee, for many years, and was a charter member of the Bunch Baptist church when it was organized, never once losing faith in the Christ he accepted more than forty years ago.
Besides the son and daughter, he is survived by one sister, Mrs. Anna Newton, in California, and whom he had not seen for over 50 years. Three grandchildren, and two great grandchildren, and his wife's aged mother, Mrs. Ellen Cummings, of Bunch, and many nephews and nieces.
Preceding him in death, were his mother, father, two brothers, one sister, three grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
Nothing was left undone that might contribute toward making him more comfortable, and we would not call him back, believing that he is in a world where pain and sorrow will never be known.
Funeral services were held Monday, June 2, 1941, at two p.m. at the Baptist church, Unionville, Ia., with Bishop T. A. Beck, of Lamoni, Iowa, in charge. Interment was in Taylor cemetery.
