From Pioneer Paper of Columbia County on December 31, 1915:
Old Settlers Called
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Adams of Scappoose, Pass Away

Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Adams died at their home in Scappoose Sunday, December 26, within eleven hours of each other. They were both afflicted with la grippe and succumbed to the grim monster within less than half a day of each other. They traveled along life's highway hand in hand for many years and who shall say that it was not their wish that they should pass to the Great Beyond hand in hand with a smiling farewell to the world.
They were natives of Russia, and were born in 1839 and 1840 respectively. Married in 1858, they emigrated to America in 1879 and located in Nebraska, where they resided for two years. From there they moved to Butte, Montana, and after residing there for one year, drove overland to Salem, Oregon, where they resided for a short time. From there they moved to Scappoose and took up a homestead, where they have resided ever since.
To this union were born 10 children as follows: Mrs. Anna Harms of Warren; Fred Adams of Scappoose; Mrs. Carrie Backwell, deceased; Ferdinand Adams of Scappoose; Mrs. Tillie Holgate of Price, Utah; Mrs. Minnie Atterbury of Seattle, Wash.; Gus Adams of Walla Walla, Wash.; Mrs. Julia Kautemeyer of Portland; Adolph Adams of Frances, Wash.; and Herman Adams of Portland. Besides these children they are survived by 20 grandchilden and eight great grandchildren.
Funeral services were held at the residence in Scappoose Tuesday and attended by many friends and neighbors.

From St. Helens Mist, Friday, December 31, 1915:
We wish to express our appreciation to our neighbors and friends for their kindly assistance and sympathy in our late bereavement.
FRED R. ADAMS and children of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Adams
