Sudden Death of Mrs. Adamson.
On Thursday morning last Mrs. Ann Adamson, widow of the late James Adamson, Nassagaweya, who moved to Acton a few months ago, died very suddenly shortly after making preparations for breakfast. Although Mrs. Adamson had suffered from two slight strokes of paralysis some months before, she was enjoying a fair degree of health. She was suddenly stricken on this occasion and never rallied. Deceased was the eldest daughter of the late George Easterbrook, and was fifty-nine years of age on the 4th of February. Her busband died on the 9th November, 1904. There were nine children, two of whom died within less than two years, viz.: Elias William in Manitoba on July 17th, 1904, and Bertha E. on Sept. 30th last. The surviving members of the family are Mrs. James R. Anderson, Acton; Mrs. G. O. McNair, Hamilton; Albert E. Toronto; Jas. W., Buffalo; and Miss Annie at home. Mrs. Adamson was a consistent Christian, a member of the Methodist Church from her girlhood. Her death is deeply mourned by a large circle of friends. In addition to the four deaths above referred to, ten other near relatives have passed away within some two years. The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon from the home on Willow Street. Rev. G. W. Barker and Rev. Geo. A. Facey officiated. Interment took place at Ebenezer Cemetery. The sincerest sympathy of the community is felt for the heavily bereaved family.
