Obituary - John B Adamson The following regarding the late John B Adamson, of Nora, Neb, who was killed by a train at that place is taken from the Nelson Nebraska Gazette: John B Adamson was born in _nio_ [Union] county, Iowa, August 20th, 1848, and removed with his parents to Appanoose county, Iowa, May 1, 1852. In the winter of 1860 or in the spring of 1861 he united with the Church of Christ. In August 1862 he hearkened to the call of his country by enlisting in Company "I" 36th Iowa Vol Infantry, remaining in the service of his country two years and eleven months, ten months of which time he was a prisoner of war in a confederate prison at Tyier, Texas, having been captured with his entire command in battle. He was duly exchanged and served with his regiment until mustered out Sept 7th, 1865. On the 7th day of February, 1865, he was united in marriage to Miss Amanda Kelley, who was removed by death February 28, 1871. To this union two children were born, Julius, whose home is in Ariba, Colo, and Mary who died in childhood. On the 10th of March 1872 he was married to Miss Elizabeth Norwood, to which union nine children were born: Sarah Bell Wright, Sanger, Cal; Eugene Stanley Adamson, Marilla Downing, Athey EIton Adamson, Lilly Penthestlea Corman, Ada Pearl Stowers, Delia Scherzinger, Nuckolls county, Neb; Blanche Houston, Idaho, and one child, Warren, died in infancy. In October, 1878, he removed his family to Nuckolls county, Neb, and in March, 1896, he moved to Nora, Neb where he has been actively engaged in business up to the very moment of his death by deplorable accident May 1st 1912. He leaves his devoted Christian wife, nine dutiful children, seven brothers, and many other relatives, besides his few surviving army comrades and a host of friends to mourn his loss. After a short service at his home conducted by Rev Wilson of the M E Church, his remains were brought to Nelson where the regular funeral services were held, conducted by the pastor, M H Cantrell, assisted by Rev Brooks and Rev Green in the presence of an unusually large concourse of people. His remains were interred in the Nelson cemetery under the auspices of the G A R of which he was a member at the time of his death. Six brothers and all his children but Mrs Wright of California were present at his interment. This sad accident was a great shock to the community to which Mr Adamson has so long resided and where he was so well known.
