Dear Mr. Butler: Thank you for the wonderful information.I will keep it for the future. The Thomas Adkins in my family's burial lot has been a mystery to me for over 37 years. Up until 2 weeks ago all that I knew about him was that "he was removed from the country" as the old cemetery records stated.Upon going through another index to the Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah two weeks ago, I learned that:he died on Nov 2, 1816, was born in 1791 and had originally been buried in the old Colonial Cemetery in Savannah.Years ago I tried to identify him; but since I had no idea of his age, where he died, etc. my search was fruitless. Now, I will try to locate an obituary notice, land records, will, and if still intact, the 1810 federal census out of Chatham County/City of Savannah, GA. I was born in Savannah a few bolocks from the old Colonial Cemetery. It is quite large.Since Georgia was the last of the original 13 colonies and Savannah was the capitol of the state for many years, many of the old colonial records for the region are still intact there.But, I now live north of Atlanta, and getting information by distance can be frustrating. But, when I find some answers to my questions that I will direct to Savannah's records, I will contact you if anything I learn seems to be revelent to William Adkins and Family. Thanks very much for your kindness and assitance. Carole H. Melson, Marietta, Georgia USA.
