[5393] Pepin of Heristol (Liege, Belgium); Mayor of The Palace Of Austrasia.

[5394] Alpaida was a concubine of Pepin.

[5392] The Frankish ruler Charles Martel, b. c.688, d. Oct. 22, 741, was the first Carolingian to bring most of what is today France under his control. He was the illegitimate son of Pepin of Heristal, mayor of the palace in Austrasia. When his father died (714) Charles fought for five years against Pepin's widow, Plectrude; Ragemfred, mayor of the palace of Neustria; and Radbod, duke of the Frisians, to secure his position as mayor. ..... From 719 until his death, Charles worked to expand Carolingian domination. In 732 or 733 he stopped the Muslim Arab advance northward from Spain in a celebrated battle between Poitiers and Tours. He conquered (733) Burgundy and thereafter fought steadily in the south of France. Although Charles supported the Christian mission of St. Boniface in Germany, he declined to help Pope Gregory III against the Lombards in Italy. When Charles died he was succeeded as mayor of the palace by his sons Pepin the Short and Carloman

[7846] William L. Adams was a young Presbyterian student that spent his first two years at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. The school was passionately anti-slavery; its president was an official in the Illinois Anti-Slavery Society. Adams was won to the message of being a Christian only. He decided to study at Alexander Campbell's Bethany College in the panhandle of West Virginia. Henry Clay had called Campbell "the greatest man on the American continent." Adams arrived in Bethany with 25 cents in his pocket and was welcomed into Campbell's own home where he boarded while attending school. While at Bethany, one who knew him said he studied on a average of seventeen hours a day. Adams was soon elected to represent the American Literary Institute in an oration to the vast crowds coming to hear Mr. Campbell on Commencement Day. W. L. Adams confided to a friend that living with the Campbells, he was "petted and praised more than he deserved." His incessant studies broke down his health and affected his eyesight. He was not able to finish the last month of school, the faculty having advised him to stop to protect his health. He then moved to Illinois and was sick most of the summer. In the fall of 1844, he married Frances Olivia Goodell, a school teacher. The next year, he taught school in Henderson County, Illinois, on the Iowa border. By 1847 Adams had assembled eight yoke of cattle, two wagons, three guns and other items necessary for the trip west. He delayed one year, selling one of his teams and a wagon to W. W. Bristow, who was leaving in 1847. During this time he declined a five year contract to head a college, preferring to move to Oregon. Even Alexander Campbell wrote to dissuade the talented young Adams from going west. But he persisted. Tenacious Adams started the trip in March, heading first to St. Joseph, Missouri where they joined forty other wagons headed for Oregon. He painted a sign on his wagon: "HIC TRANSIT!" The family consisted of Will, Frances, two-year-old Inez and four-month-old Helen Elizabeth. On the way, Mr. Adam's library was doused while crossing a swollen river. Mud was sometimes knee-deep. They traveled the Barlow Toll Road past Mt. Hood and arrived at Philip Foster's home at Eagle Creek broke, but undaunted. Mr. Foster gave the hungry family a peck of potatoes and the offer of a teaching job. However, with Yamhill County as the goal, the wagon pushed on to Oregon City, where Mr. Adams borrowed the money for the ferry to cross the Willamette. Upon reaching his destination, he traded his wagon for ten wild Spanish cows. This kept the family in beef for several years. At the age of twenty-eight, W. L. Adams took a job teaching school just west of present-day Carlton. Mahala McBride agreed to let William and Frances stay in one of their buildings if he would teach their children. His worldview was strongly influenced by that of Alexander Campbell. The McBride's worldview had been shaped by that of Barton W. Stone and John Mulkey with an elevated emphasis on evangelism. An amusing sign over the door of this one-room school read "Yamhill University." One writer, Charles H. Carey, describes the school room: In one corner of the room was a mud chimney that smoked much of the time, and here boy pupils in buckskin and mocasins, and girls in gowns of shirting colored with tea grounds, conned (learned) their lessons during the bitter winter of 1848-9, a season remarkable for low temperature, during which the thermometer fell below the zero mark. The successor of this school was another conducted by Adams in one of the three rooms of the log cabin of Dr. James McBride. Among the students were eight McBrides, seven Sheltons, two Woods and five or six others, including Levi Lindsay Rowland. One of his students described Adams as "a small, thin, flaxen-haired man. He had no dignity, was slovenly in dress, odd in manner, full of energy, obstinacy, and opinions that were his own." His later photos do not support this description. Perhaps he gave more attention to appearance as he had to deal more and more with the public as a preacher, editor, judge and educator. Adams had brought his library west. There were about 250 volumes of choice books containing the best literature of the day. When Will Adams headed south to the gold fields in 1849, Francis, an experienced teacher, taught school for one year. Both teacher and some of his students went to pan gold and were successful. There were very few men left in Oregon during the summer of 1849. Adams had another stint at panning gold in 1852 when he went to Yreka, California along with eight others. This venture was also successful. It was Will Adams, more than any other preacher of record, that presented the gospel to the Klickitat Indians that had migrated into Yamhill County. He was their friend and he went to great effort to present the Gospel of our Lord to them at his home. His house was a free resort for the poor, sick, lazy and infirm for more than forty years. Jerry Rushford writes, Will Adams taught about 20 students that winter, using a blackboard, crude benches, and a few books. In later years, he was especially proud of four of his students: John Rogers McBride, who served as a United States Congressman; Thomas A. McBride, who was appointed chief justice of the Oregon Supreme Court; George Lemuel Woods, who was elected governor of Oregon; and Levi Lindsay Rowland, who became president of Christian College in Monmouth. These four young men, all devout Christians who grew up to be leaders in both the community and the church, credited Will Adams for much of their early training and progress.
