William James Adams
July 8, 1831 – November 1, 1900
The funeral of Wm. J. Adams, whose death was noted in The Express, last week, was held at the Methodist Episcopal church, last Saturday morning. Rev. V. M. Lemen conducted the the services. Mr. Adams was born July 8th, 1831, in Cumberland county, Pennsylvania. He removed from that place to Ohio, and from there to Iowa. He spent some lime afterwards in Nebraska, but returned to Monticello about 18S4, where he continued to reside until his decease, which occurred November 1st. Mr. Adams was member of the Grand Army of the Republic and had an honorable military record (Sgt. 82nd Ohio Co. E). He served his country three years and three months as a soldier of the civil war. The ailment which caused his death was carcinoma of the superior maxillary, and had caused him great suffering for nearly a year. Mr. Adams was regarded as an honorable man in his dealings. He first made a profession of the Christian religion, thirty years ago in Ohio, and up to the time of his death, spoke confidently and hopefully of his future. He was married to Margaret McClain, June 3rd, 1854. He is survived by his widow and two children, John Adams and Christina Sullivan.
