Obituary - Paul Adams
Weekly Corinthian, Corinth, Mississippi, dated May 27, 1926 page 2
Paul Adams, one of the most popular men in Tishomingo County during recent years, was a fatal victim of a most peculiar accident. He fell from a wagon at Iuka on Monday and displaced his knee cap; he died from the injury or complications that developed from the injury Wednesday.
When the accident occurred it caused him so much pain that he was brought here where an x-ray examination took place. He was taken back to his home at Iuka Tuesday, and died Wednesday morning. Poisen set up in his system, it is stated, and he was dead 48 hours after he had the fall.
Paul Adams was the circuit clerk of Tishomingo County, and was serving his second term, having been elected the first time in 1920. Being a candidate to succeed himself he was elected by a handsome vote. Efficient, accommodating, anxious to serve he had made everybody his friend, and the grief over his sudden and unexpected death will be widespread throughout the county. Many people in Corinth knew him only hold him in the highest esteem.
In addition to his duties as circuit clerk of the county he had farming interests in his home community of Pleasant Hill, five miles south of Iuka, where he had his membership in the Methodist Church and where the body will be buried Friday. He was a progressive citizen always ready to lend a hand to a laudable enterprise.
He is survived by his wife and four children, his father and mother and other relatives of his father's family.
