Is this the same Henry Adkins who served in Co. B. of the 7th VA Cavalry of the CSA during the War of Northern Aggression?The date of birth is right, judging from his application for pension in 1905, when he listed his age as 77.
On the pension application, his name is listed as "Henry Adkins, Sr." and it states that he was born in Yancy Co, NC.There is no info given on his wife or children.
I show both a Henry Adkins, Sr. and Henry Adkins, Jr. on the 1870 Wise Co, VA Census. Listed as being in the same household at the time are: Debitha, Eliza, Martha E., Seth, and William.
I am trying to connect--or rule out a relationship between-- the Henry Adkins (b. 1828) to whom I am related with the Henry Adkins, Sr. whose pension application I am trying to decipher...
