Republican and Press, December 16, 1886: The funeral of Mr. Chancey Adams was attended by the largest concourse of people ever met in the M.E. Church at York Center. There was not room for another person. An excellent sermon was delivered by Rev. Mr. Douty. The services were held on Sabbath morning; the day being fair all the neighbors and friends turned out to offer their sympathy to the sorrowing ones. While parents in sorrow mourn, faith exclaims:
In Eden's more celestial soil, Transplanted in the sky, Our loved one shall forever smile, And never more shall die.
The Neillsville Times, December 21, 1886: On Dec. 9th death entered the family of our friend S.A. Adams and took their only son, Chancey. He was 17 years of age, he was sick about 4 weeks with typhoid fever. He was attended by Dr. Adams of Spencer.
