DEATH OF JOHN ADAMS.
A Former Resident of Laurens, and a
(hillant Soldier of (lie 3rd Regiment.
BEAUFORT, April 1. Mr. John s.
Adams, a gallant Confederate Vete
ran, who had been sick for some lime,
died here Friday evening, aged 60
years. This simple announcement is as
feelingly made as if d?.ath instead had
invaded the mansion of an opulent or
more pretentious citizen. He was a son
of the late William Adams, who lived
in Laurens County. His mother was a
daughter of Mr. John Simmons, a
highly respected citizen, who before
the war was proprietor of the hotel at
Laurens Court House, and her mother.
I Elizabeth Vance, daughter of the late
Sam'l Vance, of the same county, were
all family connections of the deceased,
who also has a brother, Mr. A. L. Ad
ams in Greenville.
Mr. Adams was a member of Com
pany A., Capt. Hance'scompany of the
3rd South Carolina Volunteers, and was
pronounced by bis colonel (Col. Nance)
as one of the bravest men of his regi
ment. At the battle of Eredericksburg,
fought December, 1862, while charging
the enemy, he was severely wounded,
the ball entering his mouth, shattering
the right jaw bone, and coming out of
the bone, just behind the right ear,
from which wound he lay for three
months. He returned to his command
after convalescence, but with perma
nently impaired health, he never sufli
cently recovered, and served to the end
of the war with distinguished bravery
Unfaltering courage, truth and sincer
ity, were recognized and distinguishing
traits of his character. .No one ever
knew .John Adams to falsify, by word
or deed, his honest convictions. He
always wore conspicuously upon his
breast his well-earned Confederate
By a singular coincidence, while your
correspondent knew that he was a mem
ber of the gallant 3rd South Carolina
I regiment, of his having been wounded
and of his distinguished bravery
throughout the war, he could not locate
to which company he was attached,
until the list of the killed an 1 wounded
of the regiment in the battle of Ered
ericksburg, as reported by Adjt. Y. J.
Pope and published in the Columbia
Guardian, December 25, 1865, reap
peared in The Sunday News of last
Sunday, while he lay speechless and un
It will be a satisfaction to his sur
viving comrades in arms to know that
surrounded by some faithful friends
the old man passed away peacefully,
and his funeral obsequies will be at
tended by Veteran comrades. News

A Dinner for the Veterans Planned.

noon of the 28th, Wade Hampton's birth

number of the "Daughters" were pres
ent and the meeting proved unusually
Mrs. It. H. Hell read a beautiful and
carefully prepared paper on the life and
deeds of General Hampton, which was
greatly enjoyed. After the literary
feature of the programme came a dis
cussion of arrangements for Memorial
It will be recalled that last year at
the eleventh hour it was decided to give a
dinner to the veterans but so late was
it when the affair was determined upon
that many of the veterans were not
notified. It is the earnest desire of the
Chapter that every veteran in the coun
ty be present this year. The dinner
will be served on the lawn of the old
Gnrlington residence on North Harper
Street and Col. Armstrong will make
his address in the afternoon from the
piazza, which will servo as a rostrum.
All of the "Daughters" of the Con
federacy, whether enrolled as members
of the ehaper or not will be given the
opportunity to contribute to the lunch
and the Chapter feels assured that it is
an opportunity that will be gladly em
It is urged that*the different Camps,
in the county send the names of their
members who will probably attend, to
Mrs. J. A. Copeland in order that the
ladies may form an estimate of the prob
able number of their guests.
The Chapter is very anxious for the
day to be pleasant for the veterans and
will count trouble a small matter if the
old soldiers are pleased.
