I am looking for information on the Adkins that lived in Newton County, MO. May have also lived in Joplin (Jasper Co.), MO. Specifically the family of my g-g-g-grandmother, Artie Adkins. I think her actual name is Artemesia, but everyone in the family knew her as Artie Lameca. She was married twice: first to a man named John Quinn, second to my g-g-g-grandfather, Richard Moses Walker.It is said that her father was a John Adkins that married a Cherokee princess named Little Flower Frost. Her father was supposedly a Cherokee Chief. But I have no info to back any of this. Can anyone help?!
