"ONE OF GULFPORT'S GOOD MEN EXPIRES"
"A. D. Adams, one of Gulfport's reliable and useful citizens, died at the King's Daughters Hospital Sunday morning at 11 o'clock. Death resulted from a stroke of paralysis which came to Mr. Adams while he was in his office at the G. and S. I. shops where he was general foreman. He was taken to the King's Daughters Hospital as soon as the stroke came upon him and everything possible was done for him but he was not able to recover from the result of the shock. Mr. Adams was 56 years old at the time of his death and had been connected with the Gulf and Ship Island Railraod in an official compacity for a number of years. He was for a number of years in the employ of the Illinois Central Railroad as master mechanic on one of the divisions and in other capacities. Over 40 years ago, the deceased became a member of the order of the Maccabees and has been a member all during that time. He was one of the organizers of that order in Gulfport. Some years ago he became a member of the Methodist church at New Orleans. The funeral services will be held at the family residence on the corner of 23rd avenue and 18th street this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the services being conducted by the Rev. W. L. Linfield of the First Methodist church. The Maccabees will attend the funeral services at the residence and will conduct a special service at the grave. Interment will be made at Evergreen cemetery in Gulfport. Mr. Adams was an expert mechanic being entrusted with much work of an important nature by the railroad with which he was connected. He leaves a wife and four children, two sons and two daughters. The daughters are Mrs. V. B. Eaton of Hattiesburg, and Mrs. W. C. Green of Gulfport. The sons are I. H. Adams and Anderson Adams of Gulfport. The son Anderson, who had been in of the United States as soldier, got home only a few hours before his father's death. Thus ends the earthly career of a useful man who was found at his post of duty when death called him."
