Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
April 17, 1919

OBITUARY ~ JANE ADAMS CLAREY

Mrs. Jane Clarey, widow of the late John Clarey, was accidentally killed at her home northwest of Clearfield last Friday afternoon. Death resulted almost instantly from the discharge of a shotgun in her own hands. Joseph Clarey, her grandson, lived with Mrs. Clarey on the old home place. He had been shooting squirrels, and after dressing one he had shot, said to his grandmother that he must go after a load of hay. He asked her to put his gun away, they were in the dooryard, and as he handed it to her remarked that it was loaded, and she must be careful. Mrs. Clarey took the gun and turned to go in, and immediately the gun was discharged, the load taking effect in the left and back part of the head. It seems likely the gun must have caught in the clothing of the unfortunate woman. Neighbors were quickly on the ground, and the body was carried into the house. The coroner was called, but was not in Bedford. County Attorney Locke heard the statements, advised against an inquest, but requested Dr. H. K. McCall to view the body and surroundings.

Relatives were at once summoned and by Saturday evening all near relatives had arrived. The funeral was held at the Methodist church on Sunday afternoon, and was very largely attended. We give obituary in another column.

Jane Adams Clarey, daughter of Michael and Mary Adams, was born Sept. 28, 1852, near Tuscarawas Co., Ohio. When she years of age she moved with her parents to Van Buren County, Iowa, and there removed to Lamar, Barton County, Mo, and it was there where she met and married John Clarey, Sept. 28, 1868. To this union were born two sons, Thomas and Elmer.

In the fall of 1874 she came to Lenox, Taylor County, Iowa, where she has made her home ever since, and on April 11, 1919, she met her death by accident at the age of 66 years, 6 months, 13 days.

She leaves to mourn her loss, - two sons, Thomas of Clearfield, Iowa, and Elmer of Guthrie, Oklahoma; two brothers, David Adams of Lamar, Missouri, and George Adams of Garden City, Kansas; one sister, Mrs. Laura Massengale of Kansas City, Kansas; nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild; her father, mother, husband, two brothers, and three sisters having preceded her in death.

She was a kind and loving mother and an affectionate wife, and leaves a host of friends to mourn her loss.

Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist church at 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon by the pastor, C. A. Carlson, assisted by Rev. Aikin of the United Presbyterian church. Interment in Clearfield Cemetery.
