James Adkins, was my 3rd great grandfather. He was born in Virginia, circa 1802, and died in Jackson County, Alabama. His daughter, Penelope, married Thomas Erwin, and their son, John Fletcher Erwin, married Elizabeth Smith, who also was from Jackson Co.. Their daughter, Teresa Erwin, was my grandmother. She married William F. Arnett, in Nevada Co., Arkansas. I know that I have many relatives in Jackson Co., and would really like to be in contact with them, or anyone who is interested in these families.
