Adkins, William Lucious
DEATH OF HON. W. L. ADKINS
Able Attorney Succumbs to the Grim Reaper.

The sad news was received here on Monday of the death of Hon. W. L. Adkins, one
of the leading attorneys of Columbus, after a long illness, and the funeral took
place in that city Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Isaac Sellers of Weimar, assisted by
Rev. Garrard, Columbus Baptist pastor, officiating.

The funeral was largely attended, attesting the esteem in which this truly good
man was held by the people of Colorado county. [Interment in Columbus Odd
Fellows' Rest]

Luce Adkins, as he was familiarly known to his friends, was almost regarded as a
citizen of this immediate section, having been raised to young manhood on the
Adkins Lake farm property northwest of Weimar, now owned by the Brandt family,
and he held this section and people in such great love and esteem that he had
often remarked to the writer of these lines that he "always felt at home up
there."

"Luce" Adkins was an honorable, honest, upright man, true as steel to his
friends, never varying in his attitude toward those for whom he had a friendly
feeling, open as the day in all his dealings with his fellow-man, and a man
whose friendship was treasured by all. Knowing him for a matter of forty odd
years. the writer feels that he has lost one of his truest, best friends.

Mr. Adkins leaves a widow and one son, John Bowers Adkins, to whom our heartfelt
sympathy is extended.
