Have more information on Will Adkins.Talked to grandson of Will Adkins and was given following information which was told to him by his mother,Louise Adkins Moon:Will Adkins was a blacksmith by trade.He moved around when his work in one location played out.It is said that he moved from Missouri to Mississippi and then to Tipton Co.,Tn. where he died about 1906.He had 2 blacksmith shops-one in the Idaville community in Tipton Co.,and another in Braden,nearby in Fayette Co.,Tn.His wife was said to have died giving birth to Eva May Adkins (b. 1905).The story was told by Louise Adkins that her father died in his sleep and she and her sister,Eva May,sat on his bed until a neighbor got worried and came by to check out why he hadn't seen Will lately.The neighbor found Will Adkins lying in bed in a state of decay with his 2 young daughters sitting on his bed.The neighbor took the 2 girls the Dunlap Orphanage,which was almost within sight of the Adkins home.In later years it is said that Louise tried to find her older brother,James.He had stayed in the area and kept in touch with her until she was grown but then lost touch.She contacted a man named "Pappy" Stewart in West Plains,Mo. and discovered that this man was a first cousin to her mother.The man also told her that she was related in some way to the country music act "The Wilborn Bros.".James Adkins tried in later years to contact his sisters-but Louise's husband would not let her know that he was looking for her because in his younger years he was quite a troublemaker.It is said that James Adkins had founded a nationwide chain of hotels and was wanting to locate his sisters in order to give them some money.Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?NEED HELP BAD!!
