The Cullman Tribune, 6 May 1904:
Major Adkins Passes Away. Died at His Home Thursday Morning After a Protracted Illness—Death Not Unexpected. Was a Prominent and Useful Man. Died at his home in Cullman May 4, 1904, Major Hiram Adkins, one of Cullman's oldest and most respected citizens. Major Adkins had been in very bad health for some months and his death was not unexpected. He was born in Tennessee Feb. 15, 1833 and came to Alabama with his parents when a small child. He was married March 3, 1857, to Miss Sarah Blackwell, in Moulton, Ala., and of this union there are seven surviving children: Mesdames F. B. Burnum, Alice Wilhite and O. D. Medlock; Miss Emma Adkins, Chas. Adkins, of Dallas, Texas, and Frank and Willie Adkins, of this place. Major Adkins served the Confederacy and shared his privations, hardships and losses. For many years has been a resident of Cullman, and a well known figure in this and adjoining counties, having been for a long time a U.S. revenue officer. He was at one time sheriff of this county and he was deputy sheriff when failing health compelled him to relinquish its duties. He was by religious affiliation a Baptist.
