Rites Held For Charles Adams

Charles H. Adams, 83, of Congress, who helped survey the land for the building of the Santa Fe Railroad through here in 1893, died in a Prescott hospital October 26. Graveside rites were conducted in the Congress Cemetery October 30.

Mr Adams, born in Neosho, Mo., came to Arizona when he was 11 years old. He was a territorial constable before Arizona was a state. When statehood came, he was the first clerk of the Superior Court in Coconino County. He later served as deputy U. S. Marshal in Tucson, as clerk of the federal court in Phoenix, as secretary of the Pioneers' Home in Prescott, and as deputy sheriff at Congress. He was also Justice of the Peace at Congress until that office was moved to Yarnell.

Mr. Adams moved to Congress in 1930. In later years he resided on a ranch 14 miles north of Congress.

Surviving are the widow, Katie B. Adams of Congress; three daughters, Paula Adams of Congress, Donna Maud Adams of Pomona, Calif., and Mrs Edith Pippin of Biloxi, Miss.; and one sister, Mrs Fred Ferguson of Oakland, Calif.
