2 Oct 1903--KILLED IN A WRECK---RICHARD ADKINS, OF HIGBEE, AND EDGAR ENOCHS, OF ELLIOTT, KILLED NEAR HOLLIDAY. Richards Adkins of this place and Edgar Enochs of Elliott, were killed in a Wabash wreck near Holliday Monday evening last. The dead men had been working in the mines at Elliott but quit that day and were on their way to Troy, Ill, when death overtook them. The wreck was caused by spreading rails. Seven cars were derailed, the one in which Adkins and Enochs were, being loaded with corn. This car turned over and in some way Enochs' head was crushed, while Adkins was buried in the corn and smothered. From a card found in Adkins pocket it was found who the men were and the authorities at Holliday notified their friends. Enochs was buried in Oakland cemetery in Moberly, and Adkins at New Hope, Howard county. The former was about 20 years of age and leaves to mourn his death a father, one sister and four brothers. The latter a wife and two children and several brothers, besides a large circle of friends.
