***************************************

Death of Judge McAdams
We are again called upon to chronical death’s unwelcome visitation in our midst, this time summoning an old and esteemed citizen – one of the early pioneers of this part of the county. Judge Thomas M. McAdams expired at his home in Sonora on Saturday morning last after a long and painful affliction that had caused him to waste away to a mere skeleton. His remains were taken in charge by the Masonic Fraternity and on Monday, the 8th Inst., were deposited in their last resting place with the beautiful and impressive rites of that ancient order of which he had long been a member.
The Judge emigrated from Washington county, Tennessee, we think, in 1853, landing at Sonora the same spring, at which place he has ever since resided up to the time of his death. He filled various positions of honor, among which was that of County Judge, which responsible office he filled with satisfaction to his constituents and credit to himself. His sound judgement and cool self-possession rendered him popular among his neighbors and made him a leader among his partisans. He had by careful management accumulated a considerable property leaving a competency to his aged widow, placing her above dependency and in possession of the old homestead where she and her husband have spent so many years of quiet and peaceful life. The funeral was attended by the largest concourse of persons witnessed here on an occasion of this kind for years, and the ceremonies were unusually solemn and impressive.
