Aged 66y

We are called upon to chronicle the death of one of Springfield's old settlers and good citizens, Lucien B. Adams, who departed this life at about 7:30 o'clock yesterday morning, of pneumonia, having only been sick since last Sunday. Deceased has resided in this city for over 45 years and has practiced his profession of law for more than 40 years. He was born Dec. 10, 1816, in Oswego, N.Y., and was married to Margery A. Reed, in this city on the 11th day of March, 1824 (sic, his wife's obit states 1847). For 25 years he has held the positions of Justice of the Peace and united States Commissioner in this city. He leaves his wife and four children to mourn his loss. They have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their sad bereavement. Lucien B. Adams has been an honest, upright, law-abiding citizen of this city. As will be seen by the notice in another column, the funeral will occur from the family residence this afternoon.
