Notes for Lewis Franklin ADKINS

Daniels p.94. Lewis moved to the State of Washington in 1899 and took up a homestead on Green Mountain, near Riffe, Washington. He was also a Primitive Baptist preacher. [55]

Lewis was said to be somewhat of a ladies man. When he was 85 years old, he got into a fight with a much younger man over a woman. To make the odds a little more even, he pulled a knife on the younger man, and was locked up in jail for a short time. Most people would think that an 85 year old man would not be fighting over a woman but Lewis probably knew what it was all about! [55]
