DEATH/OBITUARY/CEMETERY RECORDS

Obituary:  BODY OF FORMER AUBURN WOMAN INTERRED HERE:  Mrs. W.W. ADAIR, For More Than Twenty Years A Resident Of Auburn, Brought Back from Missouri Home and Buried Beside Body of Son, Who Died In 1890:  The body of Mrs. W.W. ADAIR, who passed away at her home in El Dorado Springs, MO, 28 Dec, was brought to Auburn Wednesday night and taken in charge by Undertaker Furlong, and at 10 o'clock Thursday morning a funeral service was held at the cemetery chapel and interment followed in Sheridan Cemetery.  The service was conducted by Rev. J.W. HENDERSON of the First Methodist Church and music was furnished by the male quartet, composed of F.C. GRANT, C.E. HOBENSEE, L.E. FRASER, and Chris SCHACHT, who in a touching manner rendered "Rock of Ages" and "Going Down the Valley One by One."  The pallbearers were William WHITWELL, C.A. SOUDERS, William HUMPHREY, C.A. RADMSCHER, Elmer SHOEMAKER, and Charles ERNST.  The family had enjoyed a splendid Christmas day, the circle being increased by the presence of the son, D.W. of Genoa, and little granddaughter, Betty Jane CRICHTON, of Omaha, all apparently being in the best of health and spirits.  Late in the evening, she suffered from a sudden attack of acute indigestion, which was followed by pneumonia the next day.  This she was unable to withstand, and passed away Monday evening.  Martha Jane BURKE was born near Circleville, OH, 5 Jun 1851, and at the time of her death was aged 74 years, 6 months, 23 days.  In 1868, she came to IA and 27 Aug 1871, was united in marriage to W.W. ADAIR at Shellrock, IA.  Five children were born to this union, four of whom, with the husband, survive her.  The children are Mrs. Blanche CLARK, Blue Mound, KS; Mrs. Ethel CRICHTON, Omaha, NE; Durwin ADAIR, Genoa, NE; and Pearl ADAIR, who has always lived at home.  Her oldest child, a son, was drowned in the Nemaha River, north of town, while the family were residents of Auburn, on 22 Aug 1890.  Mr. and Mrs. ADAIR celebrated their golden wedding at their home in El Dorado Springs, on 27 Aug 1921, at which time all the children, 7 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild were present.  In 1877, she with her husband, left the IA home and moved to Smith Co, KS, and 6 years later, in 1883, came to Auburn, residing here over 20 years.  She united with the Methodist Church in this city, shortly after coming here, and retained her membership until her removal to El Dorado Springs, transferring to the church at that place.  Much of her life was spent caring for the sick and needy and she was ready to go when called home by her heavenly Father.  The husband and all the children save one, were present when the last earthly rites were performed for their loved one.  The surviving members of the family have the sympathy of many Auburn friends in the loss of this good woman.  Source:  The Nemaha Herald, Friday, 8 Jan 1925.

Death Certificate:  Cedar Co, MO, Cert. #35785.  El Dorado Springs, MO, Martha J. ADAIR, female, white, married, hus. W.W. ADAIR b. 5 Jun 1851, age 74, housewife, b. OH.  Father William BURKE, b. Ireland, mother _____ EASTWOOD, b. England?.  W.W. ADAIR reporting.  29 Dec 1925.  d.  28 Dec 1925 of Pneumonia, Bur. Auburn NE 7 Jan 1926.

The one-year-old son of J.W. WYRICK and his wife was bitten by a rattlesnake and for several days it was thought the child could not recover.  About a week later W.W. ADAIR and wife were called to mourn the loss of their seventeen-year-old son, Lorenzo B., who fell into the Nemaha river and was drowned while fishing a short distance from where his father was at work.  The young man was troubled with fainting spells and it is supposed he fainted while on the bank of the river.  SOURCE:  Nemaha Co Book, by John H. DUNDAS, Editor of Granger Newspaper, 1902 and Earlier, USGENWEB, NE, Nemaha Co.
