I'm a 3rd-great-grandson of Richard Adkins and Polly Monroe. My 2nd-great-grandmother is Roasanna Monroe Adkins who married John Johnson. This family moved to Mason IL around 1830. I know of several sibblings of Richard and Polly.
Joseph Adkins b. 13 Jan. 1808. Anderson TN. died 30 Oct 1878 Mason IL.
Rosanna Monroe Adkins b. 1 Jan 1810 Grainger TN. Died 10 Jun 1898 Mason IL.
Joshua Adkins b. 1814 Grainger TN Died 1878 Cass IL.
William Adkins b. 1815 Died in Cass, IL.
There is a second marriage. Nancy Agnes Monroe married Richard Adkins 17 Dec 1819
I know of two children from this marriage.
James b. abt 1821 in Grainger TN. King Solomon Waddley Adkins (Solomon) b. 1827 TN. Married Martha Lovely 29 Mar 1846.
I also have downline on some of these people.
There is some speculation that Richard had a son Richard b. 27 sep 1810 Grainger TN. I have not yet verified this.
As to the parents of Richard and Lewis Adkins?
That will take some help!!!
I'm incline to believe it's a Henry Adkins since he's one of the oldest Adkins living in Grainger Co. in 1810, but there are so many Adkins living there it's hard to tell who's father, sons, cousin and all.
