John, Mark and Luke were sons of David Adkins[on] and Judith. In 1817 they left the Bluestone River area of what is today Giles County, Virginia. David with some of his kids by Judith [including Luke] settled in what is today Lawrence County, Kentucky while Mark, John and others removed to what is today Lincoln County, W.Va.. Luke left Kentucky in 1819 and bought land in present day Wayne County, sold this land in 1821 and bought a one half interest in brother Mark's land on the Mud River in an area called Sias. None of these brothers ever lived in the area called Guyandotte. Ronnie A.
