Obituary in Indiana Register, Indiana, Pennsylvania, July 27, 1858:
Mrs. Nancy Adams, wife of Samuel Adams, died at her residence, Rayne township, Indiana county, Pa., June 9th, in the 69th year of her age. The deceased, daughter of James and Mary Nesbit was born in Conemaugh township, Indiana county, and in early life consecrated herself to the Lord by uniting with the Church of Conemaugh, in the communion of which she remained, until she, with her husband, united with the Presbyterian church of Ebenezer, under the pastoral care of Rev. Joseph W. Henderson. Her membership was transferred to Saltsburg Church at its organization, where she remained until 1839, when she, with her husband, removed to the church of Washington, in the communion of which she remained until she was called to enter into the joy of her Lord, leaving behind her an affectionate husband, with whom she had lived 41 years, and six children, together with a large circle of friends and relatives, to mourn their loss. Her fortitude, during her last sufferings, were in happy consistency with that conformity to her Master's will, which characterized her whole life. She patiently waited until she was called to enter into the rest which remaineth for the people of God.

The cause of her death is revealed in an earlier article in Indiana Register, Indiana, Pennsylvania, May 25, 1858:
On Wednesday, last, Dr. St. Clair, assisted by Drs. Stewart and Reed, performed an operation for cancer, on the breast and under the arm of Mrs Adams, wife of Mr. Samuel Adams, Sr., of Rayne township, which from what we learn, was exceedingly difficult, owing to the size and locality of the tumor. It was removed with great skill, and, as is believed, with certain success and perfect safety to the patient.
