Birth: Jan. 13, 1803
Kentucky, USA
Death: Jan. 12, 1889
Clay County
Missouri, USA

Mr. and Mrs. Adam Pence died at their home near Kearney last week. The death of the later occurred on the 8th inst., and that of the former on the 12th. He was 86 and she was 85. A remarkable fact connected with their death is, that she died on her birthday while he was buried on his birthday. This veteran couple immigrated to Clay Co. from KY in 1825 and located 3 miles west of Liberty, where they entered and improved a farm. They afterwards moved back to KY, but Clay Co. had greater charms for them, and they concluded to again cast their lot here, this time purchasing a farm in the vicinity of Kearney. They were married 60 years and reared a family of 11 children, most of whom are living. They were buried in the Old Cemetery at Kearney.
