When A.D.L. Collins died, the news was on the front page of the Everett Daily Herald. One of his sons was a councilman and well known in the county. Several members of the family had moved to the Everett area from Wisconsin and Iowa, the first around the turn of the century. See his obituary in the earlier post about his Civil War service.
A.D.L. wasn’t buried until the 22 of September, 1907. Notice of the funeral also appeared in the Herald:
The funeral of A.D.L. Collins, which has been postponed for some time to await the arrival of his son, Councilman Mert Collins, from the East, will be held tomorrow afternoon from Jerread’s chapel at 2:30. The services will be under the auspices of the John Buford post of the G.A.R. Rev. W.E. Randall will conduct the services at the chapel, after with the body will be taken to Evergreen cemetery to be interred with the ritual of the Grand Army.
A.D.L. Collins served in the 7th Wi. Inf. Co. “C” in the Civil War.
