Mrs. Henry Adams, an old settler, died at her home in Americus Thursday morning. Mrs. Adams was about 84 years old and lived alone, having no immediate relatives near here. Early in the week she was found by friends, having fallen and cut a deep gash in her head. She was weak from loss of blood, having probably lain for several hours in a semi-conscious condition, before she was found. Pneumonia developed and she died Thursday morning. Her husband, Henry Adams, died suddenly about a year ago. She leaves several children, who live in California. Mrs. Adams probably would be better known as Mrs. William Tague. Funeral services were held at the Americus Methodist Church, Saturday morning at 11 o'clock, conducted by the pastor, Rev. E.H. Knepp, and interment was made in Frost Cemetery.(Obituary: Emporia Gazette, Tuesday, September 22, 1914.)
