WilHanis County, O., May 31, 1843, dau. of James Jenkins

and Catherine Radabaugh. She d. at , F"eb. 8, 1892.

He is an eccentric man, with an abnormally intense contempt
for titles, whether of nobility, of scholarship, or of a military
or naval character. His creed is : all men are free and equal
and I am as good as any other man in all these United States,
and a great deal better than those fellows who presume to stick
titled handles fore and aft their names. The thought of an
American girl marrying an English, French or other noble-
man, disturbs his mental composure more than a red flannel
shirt that of a Spanish bull. He served in the Union army ;
he is a storekeeper at Woonsocket, South Dakota.

* It is not improbable that this initial represents the name Roberts — a name
•which is found elsewhere in the same branch of this Genealogy (Stc 587)- ^nd
found in this very family (-^^^254) > althothe last fact renders it somewhat doubt-
ful that this middle name would be given to two sons of about the same age, who
lived to maturity. '1 he name was derived frcm Elizabeth Roljerts (6V<.' 3 ! '/•

at Montevideo, Minn., Apl 27, 1885, Mary Fallen Folsom, b.
at Stillwater, Minn., Feb. 22, 1861, dau. of Charles Folsom
and Amorette Erdillu Reid, of Montevideo, Minn. After an
apprenticeship in a dentist's office, he passed an examination
before the Wisconsin State Board of Dental Examiners and
practiced ten years at Westfield, Wis., but now, 1906, he is at In-
diana Harbor, Ind. Pie goes under the style of Dr. W. J. Adsit.
Dr. Adsit is an enthusiastic horoscopist, but he has at-
tempted to work out an astrologicobiblical syncretism, in which
the Chaldean and Egyptian principles are made ancillary to the
supremacy of Christ. By a study of the Adamic Laws and
those of Fate and Destiny he casts your horoscope and lays
open to your vision your supposed destiny and character.

* I le quoted from an Adsit family Bible record. From a genealogical point
of view It is unfortunate that the custom of our ancestors has fallen largely into
desuetude and family records are not generally kept. Even to-day in Massachu-
setts, where from the beginning, such satisfactory official records of vital statistics
have been kept, a birth, at least, fails of record, every now and then ; much more
fails of lofiicial record in many other states.
