Mrs. Elizabeth Miller Adamson died at her home southeast of Newton, Wednesday, September 12, 1900, in her 84th year.
The maiden name of the deceased was Elizabeth Miller. She was born in North Carolina, Dec. 25, 1816. When a child she moved with her parents to Madison County, Indiana, where she grew to womanhood. She was married to Evan Adamson August 4, 1835, and for almost 64 years they trod life's path together, the husband passing away May 26, 1899. To them were born nine children, six of whom still survive, all being present at the funeral save one.
The Adamsons were among our best known people. For years and years the names of Uncle Evan and Aunt Betsy Adamson were familiar to all. They were old settlers and possessed that warmth of heart and kindly sympathy that is such a strong characteristic of all those older ones who passed through the trials and privations of frontier life. The old customs were never forgotten and at the Adamson home the "latch string" always hung within easy reach.
The funeral occurred Sunday and was held at the home. There were very many present and many tears shed testified to the high esteem in which the deceased was held. The services were conducted by Rev. W. A. Rouze, assisted by Revs. Kirkwood and Murphy. ~ Iowa State Democrat, Thursday, September 20, 1900 Page 8, Column 4
