Transcript of The life Thomas Elkins

Many years went by until he found the love of his life, Betty Finkley, and got married on July 24, 1878. Married for a while, the couple never had kids.
Thomas Elkins was born in the early 1800's, but no one knows exactly what date.
Thomas had a very interesting childhood. He took many things apart and put them back together at such a young age. He was very intelligent but little was known about his education.
Special Inventions
One day, Tomas Elkins started messing around with one of his inventions and made the refrigerator. Many people consider it an "accident" but if it was, it was an amazing accident. After that, he memorized how to take it apart and put it back together again without even trying.
Horrible tragedy
Betty, Thomas' wife got really sick, but was cured fast. Later on she died on July 9, 1968 at the age of 93. Thomas was so depressed that he made a cemetery and buried her there. Where she was buried was called the Elkins Cemetery.
Thomas wouldn't let this ruin his life any more, or keep him from inventing what his heart desires. Thomas Elkins created the chamber commode (which was a toilet.) 4 years later Thomas died. Now people all around the world will remember Thomas Elkins for his brilliant inventions.
