March 27, 1908 Petersburg Observer
Earl Adams died of heart trouble at Mitchell, South Dakota, on Thursday March 19, 1908, at 4 p.m., aged 22 years. He had been in Watertown for the past year having left Greenview for his health, and recently purchased a barbershop in Mitchell. He had just recovered from an attack of the grip and was working in his shop on Saturday night when he became suddenly ill and it soon became necessary to remove him to the hospital. There he became delirious and was in an unconscious state until the end came. The remains were brought to Greenview. Funeral services were held at the Christian church on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m., Elder Charles E. Smoot officiating. Mr. Adams was born near Sweetwater and spent most of his life in Greenview, where he graduated from the high school in 1904. At an early age he united with the Christian church and led an exemplary and faithful Christian life. Socially he was popular and his integrity and sincerity in business made him respected and beloved by all his friends.
