Permelia never married. Owen was Permelia's father. She had a total of 12 children : Arbella, Ballard Preston, William T., Isabella, Pompey, Virginia, Elvira, Elenor, Goggin, Alice K., Charles M. and Filmore H. Adkins. I am descended from Pompey and Ballard Preston. Permelia was my GGG grandmother. I have her line back 4 more generations to William Adkins Sr.
