The Barber County Index, January 14, 1903.

Mrs. Rose Adams Dead.

Mrs. Rose Adams, of Sun City, wife of Green Adams, died on Monday, January 12, 1903 at 10:05 p.m. of typhoid fever. The entire family is or has been ill with the same dreaded malady and Mr. Adams at the time is very low. The children are recovering.

Funeral services were held at Lake City yesterday conducted by Rev. Sloan of the Baptist church. The deceased was 50 years of age. She leaves a husband and a large family of children, most of whom are grown.

The Index is indeed very sorry to hear of the great affliction visited upon this good family. Mrs. Adams was a noble woman attentive to those she loved, devoted to her children, and her sickness was largely aggravated on account of her care of the family while undergoing the fever siege. At last she was attacked herself and taken from among those it was her delight to soothe and comfort.

We sincerely sympathize with the afflicted family and hope that the husband and father may recover.


Greenville "Green" Adams, was the son of Johnson M. Adams
