THE KREMLIN JOURNAL, August 2, 1917
Albert William Atkins was born near Joliet, Will county Ill., Feb. 10, 1852, and died at his home in Kremlin, Okla., July 21, 1917, aged 65 years, 5 months and 11 days.
In 1879 Mr. Atkins left his home in Illinois, going to Burlingame, Kansas, near which place he spent several years of his life and where, in 1881 he was united in marriage to Margaret Wyrick. They made their home in Kansas until 1901, when they moved to northern Oklahoma, where he spent the remainder of his life.
Mr. Atkins was a kind father and a devoted husband, and leaves to mourn his loss a loving wife, three daughters and five sons. Only the wife, one daughter and two sons were at his bed-side when he breathed last. His death was a great shock to friends and loved ones, being very sudden, caused by apoplexy. He suffered one brief hour and though everything was done that medical skill and human hands could do he soon passed away as quietly as though going to sleep.
Twenty-three years ago Mr. Atkins was converted in a meeting held near Admire, Kansas, and lived a devoted Christian life until God called him home to rest from all earthly care and suffering.
The funeral services were held in the Methodist church in Kremlin, Okla., conducted by Rev. Swan, of Enid. After the services a large number of friends and relatives accompanied the remains to its last resting place in the Kremlin cemetery.
