    • OBITUARY: FRANKLIN CO., MISSOURI TRIBUNE, October 16, 1914

      Robert Adams passed away at the home of his son, W.B. Adams, near Gerald, on Tuesday evening, October 6, 1914, at the age of nearly seventy five years. He was born on December 25, 1839, in Franklin County, where he spent his entire life with the exception of his four years of service in the Civil War. He was married to Mary Childers in the year 1859 and to this union four children were born, Henry of Seymour, Texas; Mrs. Joseph Havener, of Warrensburg, Mo.; John, who died in 1906, and W.B. Adams, of Gerald, Mo., who has for several years cared for him and his aged wife to whom he was married in 1872* and who survives him. His first wife died in the year 1870. He has left us a beautiful example of an honest, upright, Christian life full of helpful deeds and kind words that never wavered. He has fought a good fight, and he has finished his course and gone to hear the precious "Well Done" of a loving, Heavenly Father. Our loss is indeed his gain. Services were conducted at the home of Mr. C.S. Armstrong. Friends covered the casket with flowers and he was tenderly laid to rest in the cemetery near his childhood home. We would extend the deepest sympathy to the bereaved ones in their hour of sorrow. "He shall sleep, but not forever. There shall be a glorious dawn; When we shall meet to part, no, never, on that resurrection morn. [4]
