I'm looking for the names of the parents of a William Adkins, possibly b. abt. 1770-1780, who married Elizabeth Thacker, dtr of Joseph Thacker & Elizabeth Jones of Pittsylvania Co., VA. These Adkins & Thackers, along with Slones and Justices, moved from Pittsylvania Co., VA into the Pike Co., KY area in the early 19th century. William Adkins m. Elizabeth Thacker abt. 1805, and they had these children: Rutha (b.abt. 1820;m. William Thacker on 9-2-1841 in Pike), Emily (m. John Thacker on 8-18-1836 in Pike), William Jr., Patsy, Milton, and Darcus. William Adkins is possibly related to Nathaniel Adkins of Pittsylvania, whose 3 daughters married Absolam Thacker. I suspect that both William and Nathaniel are descendants, perhaps grandchildren, of William V. Adkins, b.1690 and Elizabeth Parker, b.1695. I have no proof of this connection, but would like to determine whether it exists.
