I hope you're still out there, and have gained some new info on this man...I have his death certificate in front of me (I type these into book form for the Estill Co Historical & Genealogical Society, not for pay (cause I don't ask for any, don't want any) but because I love doing this as a learning process...I have the following info on this man...remember, not all info on these certificates was always 100% accurate, but it's better than no info at all...I suggest anybody to satisfy their own curiosity by proving what's put out to the public...now,
ADAMS, John Cuspert (that's how it's spelled), widower, white male, died: Irvine, Estill Co, KY (which was also his residence); spouse: Mary Wiseman Adams, deceased; birth date of Mr Adams: Aug 11, 1863 (year could be off, but this is what the informant gave); age: 83years, 5 months & 8 days; birthplace: Estill Co, KY; occupation: retired; parents: (darn it!)unknown, places of birth for both parents: unknown (again, darn it!); informant: Laura (nee Rucker) (married 1) Daniel Henry) Lynch, Irvine, KY ...by the way, I knew the informant...she was mother-in-law to my aunt Ola Covey Henry); burial: Estill Co, 3/21/47; funeral director: N/A; filed: April 2, 1947; died: March 19, 1947; treated from Jan of 1947, to March 19, 1947; last saw alive: Feb 12, 1947; expired: 11 pm; cause: interstitial nephrites (kidney problems); signed: E E Edwards, MD, Irvine, KY, 4/2/47; file #5321.
I desperately need this man's parents' names so I can close the empty blanks in this record...I've checked census records and there are several John Adams, but not same initial, age is close, but I'm afraid to grab hold of any one of them for fear I'll pass the wrong information to someone...Diana Covey Frymyer Mussaw
