Burial followed in the Canton Cemetery under the direction of the Haigler Funeral Home. Adams died February 1, 1978, at the Okeene hospital after a lengthy illness. Benjamin Harrison Adams, the son of Rueben and Mary Jane Adams, was born November 5, 1888, at Garden Plain, Kansas. In 1898, the family, with Ben the youngest of five brothers and three sisters, moved to Dewey County and settled on a farm near the Independence School.
