Is a native of Howard County, Missouri, and was born March 5, 1825. His early years were spent on a farm, and in 1853 he started for Oregon. His party pursued a new route and met with many difficulties, being much delayed on their journey by losing their way. Arriving in Oregon, Mr. Adkins proceeded to Lane County, and took up a donation claim, which he now holds. He moved to Monmouth in 1871, and has lived there since. Was married in 1848, to Miss Helen V. Bushnell, and of their family of nine children only four are now living -- Frank, Jason, Corydon, and Willard. Mrs. Adkin's mother died, March 25, 1884, aged 94 years.
