Adams, Samuel A. (10 MAR 1839 - 17 JUL 1920)

Mr. Samuel A. Adams was born in Vermont March 10, 1839 and died at his home in the town of York, Clark County, Wis., Saturday morning Jul 17, 1920. He came with his parents to Sheboygan when six years old and moved to Clark Co. Wis., 42 years ago, living on the old homestead for the past 41 years.

Fifty-nine years ago on Nov. 17 he was united in marriage to Miss Minnie Heath at Sheboygan Co. To this union was born six children.

He leaves to mourn his death one daughter, Mrs. Cynthia Young of York a foster daughter, Mrs. Otto Post, Latham, Kan., four grandchildren, four brothers, Lyle Adams of Menomonie, Eugene and Ernest of Gettysburg, S.D., David of Cal., two sisters, Mrs. E. Rancier of Superior and Mrs. C.A. George of Gilroy, Cal., besides other relatives and a large number of friends.

Mr. Adams was a man that was highly respected by all. He was a good neighbor, always ready to do a kindness for anyone. He has been a member of the Methodist Church for many years and lived a good life so that his loss is keenly felt by the community in which he lived.

The funeral services were held Tuesday at the Methodist Church at York, Rev. Jordan officiating. He was laid to rest in the York Cemetery beside his wife, who preceded him in death three years ago.

The relatives from away who attended the funeral were Mrs. Carrie Anthony of Mosinee, Mr. Lyle Adams, Menomonie, Mrs. Bert Lawrence, Ladysmith, Mrs. E. Heath and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Heath of Spencer. (Loyal Tribune)
