I'm trying to find out where a particular Sylvester Adkins came from. He is located on the 1900 Tazewell Co., VA census in Enumeration district 102 on page 16A HN # 292 with a wife (whose name is illegible) and then children on page 16B. His age on the 1900 census is illegible also. The children listed are: Enoch, son, b. Mar 1873, age 27 Samuel L. son, b. July 1876, age 23 John P., son, b. Sept 1881, age 18 William S., son, b. Mar 1884, age 16 Henry H., son, b. Sept 1886, age 13
Bales, Gracie, daughter, b. July 1875, age 24 married 7 years, 3 children 1 livining Enoch, grandson, b. Feb 1895, age 5
I do know that Sylvester's son, Enoch Adkins married Amanda "Mandy" Lambert in Tazewell Co., VA on 23 July 1904. On the marriage register Enoch Adkins lists himself as 33 and widowed, and he gives his parents as Sylvester and Victoria Adkins. Sylvester's spouse on the 1900 is definately a name other than Victoria.
I would be interested in ANY information anybody might have about this family's ancestors or decendents.
