      Obituary

      Elmer E. Adamson was born on a farm near Numa, Iowa, Dec. 25, 1864, and died March 27, 1936. His parents were Henry and Pentheselia (Frost) Adamson, who came to Iowa in 1836.

      He spent his boyhood on the farm of his parents and was educated in the public schools of that community. In 1888 he married Carrie Temple of Griffinsville. To them were born nine children, of whom one died in infancey [sic]. Those living are: Karl E. of Chariton, Olive Johnson of Centerville, who by her untiring efforts cared for and cheered her father during his last illness; Ralph W. of Clarion; Opal Hartwick of Chicago; Otis Gale of Des Moines; Cecil of St. Paul, Minn., llo of Olds and Leroy of Burlington.

      His wife preceded him in death two years ago and he has now gone to join her in that house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens.
