Eliza Adams lived in the Richardson County town of Salem, and is buried in the town's Maple Cemetery.Her stone reads "Jennie Adams, wife of M. W. Adams."She died Nov. 4, 1882, aged 24 yrs, 11 mos, 27 days.In the same cemetery is Mable Adams, daughter of M. and Jennie Adams. She died Jan. 14, 1882, aged 6 mos, 20 days.
Eliza's obituary appeared in the Falls City News, Thur. Nov. 16, 1882, written by the paper's Salem correspondent.It was reported that the Adams's moved to the "country" (probably meaning "county") in 1879 from Hendricks Co., Ind. and that hers was the "largest funeral ever seen in Salem."
The obituary mentions that she was a mother of two, one of which died "last October."However, I can find no record of an October death in the family.The correspondent may be referring to Mable. Her husband and her son were the only survivors mentioned.In Falls City's other paper, the Journal, its correspondent does mention three children's deaths in Salem in October, but gives no names.
I can send a copy of the obituary by e-mail, or by regular mail if you send me your address privately.
