Delter ADAMSON was born in December 1884 in Tennessee. He died before 1947 at the age of 63.

May be buried Philadelphia Cemetery, Fannin Co, TX as Delmer Adamson. If so the date of birth is incorrect, based on what was stated for the 1900 Census. Born 24 Apr 1886, died 22 May 1929. I did find a Texas Death Certificate for a possible son - stated that the father was Delter Adamson, the mother Delmer - so this may be her grave.
