Adams, Horton H. (1846 - 1870)

Died, in Neillsville Wednesday evening, Aug. 10, 1870, Horton H. Adams, youngest son of G. O. Adams, in the 24th year of his age.

Horton Adams in the enjoyment of the hope of life everlasting, in the fullness and vigor of young manhood, after a painful confinement of five weeks, has passed from our midst and entered upon the journey whither, sooner or later, we are all sure to go. His illness was typhoid fever and after struggling with the death like attack of this monstrous disease for four weeks his strong constitution and almost incredible mental powers temporarily vanquished the enemy and hopes were entertained for Horton's speedy recovery. But Death is ever watchful. The grave was not to be robbed of its victim. The hopes and prayers of the anxious parents and faithful relatives and friends were not to be realized. He bid farewell to all that is earthly Wednesday evening last. The sun of that evening set on the lifeless body of one who was just ripening into manhood a man who could boast a thousand virtues with not a single fault. His life was a pure one, his career a useful one, and his example a worthy one. May his virtuous deeds be emulated and his quiet, contented departure from earth be taken as a symbol of the beauty and purity of the life that a waits all who live in the fear of our Savior.
