Birth: unknown
Death: May 12, 1935

He came to his death 14 miles northwest of Globe on the Globe-Roosevelt highway when his automobile overturned. His twin sons, Arthur and Junior, age 9, were in the vehicle, but only injured. He was returning from a visit with his ex-wife, Mrs. George Russell, in Tonto. Tom Russell was immediately behind Adkins' car, and was the first to reach the scene. He and Elvis Clark of Pleasant Valley tried to lift the car off the victim, but found the vehicle too heavy. They went to Wheatfields, secured auto jacks and a saw, returned to the accident, and extricated Adkins and the two boys. Russell took the twins to the hospital, while Clark continued to work to get Adkins' body from under the car.
He was an area resident for 18 years. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge No. 55 of Hurley, N.M.; and a Spanish American war veteran, having served with the colors in Cuba. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Miami.
He was survived by his sons; a sister in Toledo, Oh.; two brothers, William and Jones.
