Mrs. Adamson was born near Dixon, Tenn., where she lived until she was grown to young womanhood. It so happened that while on a visit to the home of her sister, Mrs. Elphia Kelly, of Houston, Texas, several years ago, that she met W. H. Adamson, of this county, who had gone to Texas and had found employment there. The meeting ripened into deep friendship and December 12, 1916, she came to this county and the day after her arrival, united in marriage with Mr. Adamson. The young couple settled at North Bend on the old Temple Homestead. After a short time there they moved to the Frank Luse place at Mystic and lived in and about Mystic for some time. Later they moved to Plano where they operated the telephone exchange for three years, Mrs. Adamson being in charge of the switchboard.
Mrs. Adamson has been a member of the Christian church and was an earnest worker. In death she leaves her husband, two sisters, Mrs. M. E. Corbett of Texas, Mrs. Elphia Kelly of Oklahoma, and three brothers, J. G. and C. A., of Oklahoma, and A.M., of Texas.

Mrs. Adamson was loved and liked by all who knew her. She was always ready to help others and will be missed by a wide circle of friends and relatives. She leaves her husband, three brothers and two sisters, besides other relatives and friends to mourn her death.

Sister Adamson, in early life, confessed Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour, and was buried with Him in christian baptism, and has ever lived in the faith, never becoming tired of the way.
