    FRANKLIN, Ada M.
    Ada Franklin, youngest of ten children of Isaac & Margaret Franklin, was born February 11, 1874, near Unionville, Missouri. She departed this life at home in Wa Keeney, Kansas, on July 6, 1961, at the age of 87 years, 4 months & 25 days.

    After the death of her parents, she came to Graham County, Kansas in 1890 where she made her home with her sister & brothers. Here in the Leland Community she had her own homestead.

    On December 15, 1892, she was united in marriage to John Alvin McCoy in Wa Keeney, Kansas. They moved into a sod house on his homestead in southern Graham County. Later a frame house was erected here. They resided on the farm until November 1, 1951, when they retired & moved to Wa Keeney.
    To this union six sons & three daughters were born.

    The closest doctor was in Wa Keeney miles away, If anybody in the surrounding area got sick, having a baby or serious injury, Ada was called on to come help. It didn't matter if it was day or night. The doctor would send for her help or stop & pick her up himself. She delivered a lot of babies. Ada always tried to put out a garden, sometimes because of dry weather a little water in the wells she would take her hoe & plant garden over a 1\2 mile from the house. she would walk there, work & walk back.

    .....Of a Grandson: by Gayle M. Garrett:
    "Grandpa drank his coffee white, Grandma drank her coffee black & strong. When we stayed at our grandparents, "my brother & I" we would usually have pancakes, homemade butter & Log cabin syrup from a can shaped like a log cabin. I remember my favorite time was watching Grandma drop her hair out of a bun & combing it. She flipped it ahead, bent over & combed it out. Her hair reached the floor & she would put it back up and she used a comb for her hair to hold it up & in a bun again. She was a little lady but she moved mountains, she got things done. It was also an experience to watch her dress a chicken, she was fast & good.
