Birth: 1833
Death: 1887

Rebecca married Raymond Adams in 1856

Mrs Raymond Adams living near Waterloo, Venango Co. met with death last Monday afternoon in a most singular and horrible manner. Mrs. Adams went to the barn to look for eggs and went up into the mow. In descending she slid off the corn fodder intending to light on the floor a few feet below. A pitchfork, with a broken handle, had been left standing against the mow with the sharp and ragged point upwards; on this the poor lady was impaled, the handle penetrating the body at least one foot. Her son driving into the barn about an hour after discovered the dead body just inside the stable door, and an examination of the floor and premises disclosed the fact that in her death agony the unfortunate woman had extracted the piece of wood and crawled as far as the barn door. She was aged about fifty years and leaves a husband and nine children.
This obit was taken from the newspaper Warren Ledger October 21, 1887
