Paulette, Contact me for info on an Adkins book that you need. It was written by Barney Mack Hunter (sound familiar) and has lots of info on us Adkins people of Louisiana. Barney has done a fine job of gathering information and his book is very reasonably price at $35-40, including shipping.
Assuming this is your line, our Adkins ancestors, Zaccheus Adkins and his wife Piety Prudence Sansing, had 9 kids. Your line (and Barney Hunter's) is through their son, Lewis Davis Adkins and his descendents: Tilmon O. Adkins, Barney Mack Adkins, etc.. My line is through another son of Zaccheus and Piety: L. C. C. Adkins.
