ADAMS. Died, in Clearfield township, Cambria county, on Thursday evening, Sept. 29, 1881, ELIZABETH FRANCES, wife of Mr. WM. I. Adams, aged about 41 years.

The subject of this notice was born in County Cork, Ireland, in the year 1840, and emigrated to this country with an aunt when about eleven years of age, locating in Massachusetts, where she resided for six years. In the Spring of 1857 her parents and other members of the family came to America and settled in Clearfield township, this county, whither she followed them in 1859, and where she subsequently married the gentleman whom her death has now so sadly bereaved. The deaceased (sic) was a woman of the most generous and noble impulses, a devout Catholic, a kind neighbor, a devoted wife, and a fond and loving mother whose precepts and example will long be remembered by her children, of whom there are eight left to mourn her untimely death. She bore her sufferings with true Christian resignation, and was fortified in her last moment by the sacraments of the Church of which during life she was an oxemplary (sic) member. Her funeral, which took place on Saturday, October 1st, was the largest that has wended its mourning way to St. Augustine's cemetery for many years. May she rest in peace. M.L.C.
