October 26, 1916

Ichabod T. Aikins was born in Morgan county, Ohio, in 1826, where he lived until 1851, when he moved to Virginia and from there he moved to Kansas in 1868, and in 1874 he came to Jackson county and settled in the western part of the county, near Avoca, where he made his home until 1903, when he moved to Oklahoma, coming back to Kansas again in 1911, and has resided here since. The deceased was twice married, first to Charlotte White, in 1851. To this union were born three children, one of whom survives him. His wife died in 1854, and he was again married in 1856 to Sarah Lent, who with nine children, 30 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, still survive ... Mr. Aikens was converted and united with the M. E. church when a young man, and never forsook the faith. He was also a veteran of the Civil war, enlisting in Co. G, 63rd Ohio, in 1861. He was discharged in 1862 on account of ill health. He again enlisted in 1865 and served until the close of the war. He was the only man in his company that voted for Lincoln, and did that at the risk of his life .... Father Aikens departed this life at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. M. Shipley, of Coffeyville, Kan., Oct. 10, 1916, at the ripe old age of 90 years, 2 months and 3 days. The funeral took place at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Agnes Bair, in Holton ....
