OBITUARY. DR. JONATHAN ADAMS was born on the 11th day of October, 1803 in Hancock co. in the State of Georgia, and died on the 15th day of June, A. D. 1864, in Harrison county, Texas.

Dr. Adams was for more than 30 years a successful practitioner of medicine for which he was eminently qualified both on account of his enlarged understanding, and benevolent heart. He retired from practice only when the infirmities of age [required it]. His services however as a physician were never refused to the poor, or to his neighbors within easy reach, when his health permitted. The last ten years of his life was marked by periods of great bodily suffering (constitutional asthma) which, although it impaired his strength and vigor, could not effect [sic.] the serenity of his temper.

Preeminent among all his virtues, was his patriotism. His door was by the wayside and there the ragged and tattered soldier, covered with honorable wounds, or fainting with illness, and be bedizened officer, returning from or going to the tented field, shared on equal terms his simple hospitality "without money and without price." Early in the commencement of our terrible struggle, he pledged his faith to its success, and gave his sons to go and battle for freedom, one of whom sleeps on consecrated ground, and another reposes on his arms, by the camp-fires of the army of Tennessee, awaiting the same martyrdom in our most glorious cause. It is no amazement that such a man should desire only to see...the glory and independence of his country. --The Texas Republican (Marshall, Texas); Friday, 13 Jan 1865
