Mary H. Adams

Wife of A. E. Adams was born 1861. She professed faith in Christ at the age of 14 years and united with the Baptist church at Bluff City, of which she lived a member until her death. She died January 26, 1896, leaving a husband, mother, brother, and a host of friends to mourn their loss.  Sister Adams honored her profession until her death. She lived an exemplary life. The husband loses a model wife and the church and community a zealous Christian. We feel assured that she has gone to rest with Jesus. And may the blessed Christ, whom she loved to serve be with her...husband and mother. "And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me write, blessed are the dead that die in the Lord from henceforth. Yes, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors and their works do follow them" Rev. 14:13
