“I Christopher Adkins, of Epsom, in the County of Daviess, and State of Indiana, merchant, being of sound and disposing mind and memory …” - I believe this to be the last will and testament of my 4th great grandfather, Christopher Adkins (1825-1887).
My 3rd great grandfather, Patrick Miles, was a tall man. Apparently he was one of the tallest in his county at the time of his death in 1903. He stood six feet and six inches "in his stocking feet." This is his story.
