Adams, Marion (21 OCT 1870 - 16 FEB 1890)

Died, at the home of his parents in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Sunday Feb. 16, 1890, of pneumonia, Marion Ellsworth Adams, aged 19 years, 3 months and 26 days.

Thus the Grim Destroyer enters another home and ruthlessly takes from the happy parents and family a beloved son and brother just entering upon the stage of manhood. Though suffering considerable at times for a number of months past, Marion bore his lot without a murmur, hoping that all would yet be well with him, but when the end drew near he felt perfectly resigned to his untimely fate. Marion Ellsworth Adams was born Oct. 21, 1870 in Green Co., Pa., and removed with his parents to this village in 1883. The funeral services were held at the Baptist church on Tuesday at 2 p.m., Rev. J. E. Webster of Cadott officiating. The remains were escorted to the Thorp cemetery by the Germania Band, who rendered music appropriate to the occasion. The high esteem in which the deceased was held in the community was shown by the large concourse of people who followed the remains to their last resting place, the schools being closed, the mills and stave factory shutting down to allow all to attend the funeral. The entire community extends sympathy to the grief stricken parents, brothers and sister in this great bereavement.
