    Mrs. Racheal Adkins nears Century Mark
    Mrs. Rachael Adkins, reaches her 99th birthday on next Sunday, Nov. 11, Armistice day. She was born Nov. 11, 1824, and for many years lived at her old home in Kentucky, but several years ago moved to Kellogg, where she has lived until the past three years. She is now staying with her son in law and daughter.

    There has been some dispute as to whether Mrs. Adkins is really 99 or 100 years of age. In the interview with the Herald representative Wednesday evening, Mrs. Adkins, who retains a remarkable memory for her age, says that she is 99. This however, does not detract from the honor that is due her, and she says that she expects to reach the century mark and then some.

    A short history of Mrs. Adkins would not be inappropriate at this time. Her maiden name was Rachael Williams and she married Benjamin Adkins and to this union were born four daughters and five sons
    J. F. Adkins of Grinnell
    Jane Adkins in Kansas
    Louis Adkins of Bartlettsville, Kansas
    Litha Cooper, of Grinnell
    Wyatt Adkins
    Marsh C. Adkins of Kellogg
    Rosie Spurling of Newton
    Mary Alice Adkins of Pasadena California
    General Winfield Adkins

    Mrs. Adkins was never in better health than now. She says that she has never been sick for a day in her life. She attributes her good health and longevity to the fact that she has lived simply, and that she used none of the modern nick knacks.

    BIG CELEBRATION FOR 99TH BIRTHD
    OF Mrs. Adkins
    Seventy Relatives Gathered Sunday at the G. W. Cooper Home in Her Honor
    -------------------------------------
    A Happy Day was enjoyed by all present.
    ------------------------------------
    Mrs. Adkins received a bouquet of Red Carnations from Focht Tennant Post
    ---------------------------------------
    About seventy relatives and friends gathered at the G. W. Cooper home Sunday to help Mrs. Rachael Adkins celebrate her 99th birthday. A happy day was spent in visiting and taking pictures. A bountiful dinner was served about one o'clock and Mrs. Adkins presided at the head of the large festive board with her usual dignity. In the morning, Mrs. Adkins was presented with a beautiful bouquet of red carnations by Focht Tennant Post of the American Legion. To add to these each member of the family presented her with a large yellow chrysanthemum.

    During the day, the living descendents of Mrs. Adkins were counted. Five of the eight children born to Mrs. Adkins are now living., J.F. Adkins of Grinnell, Mrs. Rosie Spurling of Newton, Louis Adkins of Bartlettsville, Kan, and Mrs. Litha Cooper of Grinnell. It was found that she has 20 grandchildren, 89 great grandchildren and 25 great great grandchildren.

    Mrs. Adkins has a very interesting life history. She was born at Monticello, Wayne County, Kentucky, Nov 11, 1824. Here she spent her girlhood days and was married to Benjamin Adkins in 1843. In 1870 she and her family moved to Iowa, settling north of Kellogg. Here she lived until 1887, when her husband died. Later she lived with her children until she took up her residence in Kellogg. It was in her early nineties that she moved to Kellogg, living in part of her house by herself and renting the other part. About three and a half years ago she met with an accident which enfeebled her so that she came to Grinnell to live with her Daughter, Mrs. Litha Cooper.

    Mrs. Adkins has a remarkable memory for the happenings in those early pioneer days. One interesting story is that her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Adkins were members of the famous Daniel Boone party that made the trip through the wilderness from North Carolina to Kentucky. She tells of many interesting encounters with the Indians on this journey.

    Her life has been one of hardships and struggles and she attributes her longevity to living simply, peacefully and calmly and at this advanced age, her thoughts are as ever for the comfort of others. During questioning, her attention was turned to the little children for whom she had many pleasant remarks. It is not her remarkable age that impresses one upon coming into her presence; it is a feeling of coming into the presence of one who has lived and loved laughed and suffered and who has enjoyed the richness and fullness of Life to the greatest extent and who now extends a hand of fellowship to those who are yet on the way. Her mind is still keenly alert to that which goes on around her.

    In 1863 she bravely sacrificed her oldest son, J.F. Adkins, who was but then entering young manhood at the age of 18, as a volunteer to the Union Army and a few months later when "France" lay ill at Lexington, she with her next oldest son, Louis,, made a trip of 100 miles on horseback, to care for her son and bring him home. At about the same time her husband was drafted to the army, and because of his need at home, he bought a Negro slave, freeing him upon possession and hired him to take his place in the Union army. Her memory of these days is remarkable clear and she tells many other interesting things that are too long to print.

    Those who participated in the happy reunion are: Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Adkins, Mr. and Mrs. W.M. Adkins, and family, Dr. and Mrs. Louis M. Adkins and Daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Adkins and family. Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Adkins and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Crowder, and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ahrens and family, Lee Adkins of San Pedro, California, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Spurling of Newton, Mr. and Mrs. Chris Reutter, of Malcom, Mr. and Mrs. Dwight Pearce and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Ona Stuart and family, Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Stuart and family. Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Adams and family. Mr. and Mrs. Earl Doane and family, of Kellogg, Mr. and Mrs. Lester Adkins and son of Kellogg, Mrs. M. C. Adkins of Kellogg, and Frank Matteson. During the afternoon many friends came to greet her, among whom were Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Roth, T.P. Brien and Mrs. Lou Doane all of Kellogg and Mrs. Zetta Adkins and Mrs. Clara Phipps of Grinnell. Many of her relatives who are scattered in all parts of the United States were unable to be present.

    Benjamin Adkins, SR was born about 1770 in Virginia and died in Wayne County in November 1839 and buried in the Barrier Community near Parmleysville where he lived. Benjamin and his wife, Catherine Stigall and his sisters were among the first settlers of Kentucky, making the long journey from North Caroline with on of the Daniel Boone parties. Two of Benjamin's sisters were killed by the Indians on this trek. His name first appears in the land records of Lincoln County, Kentucky in 1798, the in Pulaski County in 1799 and on the 1810 Census of Wayne County. He married Catherine "Katie" Stigall before coming to Kentucky. She was born 1779 in South Carolina and perhaps some of her family came also as there is a Stigall Community in Pulaski County, near the Cumberland River, off Highway 1642. Benjamin and Katies' daughter, Katie Jr. and her husband, Samuel Walden were buried in this area of Pulaski. Catherine Stigall Adkins lived in widowhood with her son Benjamin Jr. in the Parmleysville area of Wayne County until she died in 1862. In 1864, Benjamin Jr. sold out and moved to Iowa. Catherine is buried in the Barrier Community of Wayne County along with her husband, Benjami Sr.

    In 1836, Benjamin built a Log Mill on the Little South Fork, made of huge squared logs. It had rifle slits on two levels. This mill is still standing in Wayne County. When Benjamin died in 1839, his estate consisted of 10 or more Negro, large sums of money and debts Owing to him to the amount of $10,000 besides many acres of land, stock, farm instruments, household and kitchen furniture of great value.

    Benjamin Sr.'s Last Will and Testament is also included in the book "Washington Young of Wayne County, Kentucky and his Descendants by Asher Leon Young". Also included are court records in which a son-in-law and daughter-in-law attempt to challenge the will. Their spouses had died and they and their children were left out of the will. They claimed that Benjamin was never well and suffered from mental illness as a result of a head injury received during and Indian attack. They lost their case.
