HIGBEE NEWS (Randolph COunty MO)--23 Nov 1900--John A. Adler, aged 77 years, met with an accident Thursday of last week that cost him his life. A Mr. Comstock was in town trading Thursday, and Mr. Adler concluded he would ride out home with him. Soon after passing the residence of Joseph Lessley, the board which Mr. Adler was using for a seat, was caught in the spokes of the hind wheel of the wagon, which threw him to the ground with great force, and before the team could be stopped the wagon had passed over him. Dr. Nichols was called and upon examination found four ribs broken and his whole system. The doctor gave him every attention possible but he continued to grow worse until Sunday morning when death relieved him. Deceased leaves two sons, a daughter and a host of friends to mourn his loss.
30 Nov 1900--OBITUARY--The subject of this sketch, John A. Adler, who came to his death by accident, an account of which appeared in the Higbee News of November 23, 1900, was born in Russia in 1823 and was at the time of his death nearly 77 years old. He came to America in 1853 and located in Fayette, Howard county, MO. Two years later he was married to Miss IDA MUELLER, a native of Switzerland, who preceded him to the grave nearly four years ago. Mr. Adler worked at the tailor's trade for several years and was also a barber. Previous to the war of the rebellion he bought the farm on which he lived until his death, the farm being six miles southeast of Higbee. He served a few months as a union soldier in the year 1865, being discharged at the close of the war. He was a member of the G. A. R, and took a great interest in attending all the meetings of the Post; also the State and national encampments when in his power to do so. He was of the Catholic faith but did not talk much on the subjects of religion or politics; in fact, he was a man of few words, but always kind and agreeable with everyone he met. He leaves three children, all of whom were present at his funeral.
AUGUST, his oldest son lives beside the old homestead and always looked after his father. MARY FENNEL, his daughter, resides in Moberly, and JOHN, the youngest son, lives in St. Louis. He also leaves several grandchildren and a host of friends to grieve over his departure. The funeral was from the house of Larkins Perkins, where he died, and services were conducted by F. H. James of Higbee. The remains were taken to the family burying ground on the farm of the late Frederick Schawo and laid to rest by the side of his wife. *transcriptions by Kathy Bowlin*
