While living in Texas a few years back( before I traveled the web wave. I found something that now makes a lot of sense. I found a litte cemetery called Wild Peach in the community of Jones Creek just west of Freeport Texas in Brazoria co. On the front there was a sign that read the first burial ground of Steven F. Austin , Father of Texas. Inside the fence there was more info . A nother stone reads, Steven F. Austin SO (Moses Austin) birth place, N.Carolina. In this cemetary were many Adkins. Also there was plots marked off thatappeared to be slaves graves. This area was still in the main cemetary. I believe from recolection I saw one that reads wife of Richard Adkins.Up the road ,north maybe 6--to 700 yards there is a row of tiny houses . Maybe 5 or 6 still standing. Inhabited by negro or dark skined people. I was told these were slave quarters for the old Austin Plantation. thatin the past had burned down. the plantation was behind the tree rows across the road. Now my question is after my studies on my matralineal line of Adkins,(I Have 5 Adkins lines) I am nearly sure that Steven F. Austin is the brother of my gr. gr. grandmother. my line comes down as follows. As far back as I can go from info sent to me by Burnice Adkins of Van Lear Kentucky. She is my 2nd cousin. she lived her life there, and she should know what she is talking about. Bernice says she can start the line with William & Nancy (nee) Hamilton Adkins of Pike co. Ky. -------> Jefferson & Lorina (nee) Austin Adkins.Lorena Austin Adkins(d/o Moses Austin of N. Carolina) --------> George Washington & Harriet (Hattie)(nee) Music Adkins. Harriet was the d/o ???James & Kazia (nee) Gobel Music.---------> Calvin Bud & Myrtl Alice (nee Lemaster) Adkins. Myrtl A. Lemaster was the d/o James Ruffus & Sarah Jane (nee) Adkins Lemaster.James Ruffus Lemaster was s/o John & Jamima (Mima)(nee) Smith Lemaster. Mima Post Office Ky. was named after her. Sarah Jane Adkins Lemaster was d/o William Riley & Sarah Ellen (nee) Bowling Adkins, of Morgan County Ky. 2nd. marriage for William Riley Adkins.... My mother Ruby is the d/o Calvin Bud & Myrtl A.
