A Short Obit for Dr. Samuel M. Adams
Boone County, Kentucky

Rev. S. M. Adams.

     Dr. Samuel M. Adams died July 2, 1908, at his home in Walton, Kentucky, where he had resided for several years. For a long time he had been in frail health, but finally his case became more serious and while all was done for him that loving friends and skill could do, the time came for him to lay down his armor and go from labor to rest.

     He was born at Big Bone Springs, Boone County. Kentucky, Sept. 30, 1851; united with the Big Bone Baptist Church, Friday, Nov. 24, 1882, and was baptized by Elder James A. Kirtley, pastor of the church. He was ordained to the full work of the Gospel Ministry at Big Bone Chnrch, July 29, 1889. He had been a successful physician and gave up a lucrative practice to preach the gospel. Bro. Adams was a faithful and efficient minister, popular with the churches and much loved by all. For several years he was chairman of the Executive Board of North Bend Association, and also Vice-Moderator of the body, holding the latter office at the time of his death. He was a true friend, kind, courteous, forbearing and charitable towards all, and his life was a benediction to all who knew him.
