1862-1934

November 27, 1862, Bloomfield, Iowa (birth name: Sarah Addison Pollard).

December 20, 1934, New York City:

As seventy-two year old Miss Adelaide was enroute from her New York City home to a New Jersey town during the Christmas Holidays in 1934 where she was to hold some religious meetings, she became critically ill in the New York City railroad station. She was rushed to a nearby Y.W.C.A. home where she died shortly thereafter, death being attributed to a ruptured appendix.
