Jaunita , First the Scary that I'm talking about is located between Hurricane and St. Albans and to my knowledge it was more of an early settlement than just a creek . Land was deeded from Henry Sims to build the Church that I have been searching for the Grave of my Ancestors .It is a historical site as one of the first battles of the Civil War was fought there. It is in the Kanawha River Valley leading into Point Pleasant .The Church was probally built around 1847 or rebuilt ,I have'nt got that much straight yet .Im just starting to find info about this .
As for the Hamilton Adkins ,I put in my messege the reason I believe this to be My GG Grandparents but I have nothing to tie into there.I'm hoping that some of the decendents of this Hamilton and Malinda Peirson will have records of their Son Thomas , who was my G.Grandfather married Emily Jane Tyree and died after 1892 when my Grandfather Andrew Franklin Adkins was born. They both died young and this is the reason that I seem not to be able to connect them.The Hamilton (son of David )that is listed online may be the one , however the one listed as the Son of Luke matches the dates better . But there were apparently more Hamilton Adkins, in the Kanawha , Putnam , Cabell , and Lincoln Co . areas , To my understanding may all have been Cabell Coat one time. They all are connected , somehow , I feel sure of it but if you will click on my name you will be able to see my posting history .I have messeges listed in the Gen Circles and other boards as well, I've tried to sort them for over a year now .If you will email me I can send you a lot of links and you can try and find the right one for yourself .I'm about ready to give up but if you are still in the area you can go directly to the Archives and the sources of information that I cant go to living out of State now . If I had a week or so there I could probally do a lot more.Yes we are more than likely related but how I dont know . Your Mother and mine are probally around the same age as we are close in age. And she will be 80 in march but due to her Father and Her Grandfathers early death she cant be of much help but cling to any little bits of info you can get from yours and any other of the older relatives that you have. They are really our best sort . Visit them and let them talk and take notes . I wish I had but its too late for that now.Enough for nowLinda
