Elizabeth Ellis Coble was born October 19,1852, near Hardinsburg, Indiana. She attended the usual country school, attaining a high scholarship for those days. Her opportunities were rather more than the average country girl of her time from the fact that her father in addition to farming ran a large country store. In this store she helped learning many lessons in the school of experience, which she never grew tired of relating. The stirring events of the Civil War were part of her heritage and cultivated a patriotism which later found expression in the work of the Women's Relief Corps of which she was a member for many years. In 1869, she married to James W. Adams. They made their home in Southern Indiana until 1882 when they moved to a farm near Newton, Kansas. In 1902 they bought a farm near Dexter, Kansas. Here they made their home until the death of Mr. Adams which occurred November 20,1910. Since that time Mrs. Adams has lived with her daughter in Winfield, Kansas. To Mr. and Mrs. Adams were born seven children, five of whom survive their mother. Mrs. Cora Morris, Mrs. M. May Glass, Mrs. Mina Silliman, Mrs Edith Roby and Mr J. Blaine Adams. One son Oliver Morton died in infancy and Anna Ellis Adams died a few year after she was graduated from the College of Emporia. In recent years her family interest centered in her eleven grand children and four great grand children. Mrs Adams also leaves to mourn her death a family of eight brothers and two sisters - John W. Coble, J.P. Coble, N. S Coble, Mrs Mary Etta Stewart, U. S, Grant Coble, Mrs Ida Emily Brown, Albert C. Coble, Hugh E. Coble, Seba O. Coble, Ctis Coble. All live near Newton and Sedgwick, Kansas. At eleven years of age Mrs. Adams read the Bible through and at twelve she united with the Baptist Church. In 1891 with her husband she joined the Presbyterian Church of Newton, Kansas. IN locating in different parts of the state she has always taken her church membership with her. Fidelity to her Christ was always uppermost thought in her life as was evidenced in the daily home circle. Among her neighbors and friends she lived a content life filled with deeds of generosity and goodwill. For the past twelve years she has been an invalid but in this too she has shown the same brave intrepid spirit that manifested itself in the rearing and educating of her family or any big undertakings of her life.
