Jim, So far I have nothing in Nicholas Co., however, I have just begun with the Gray family....Adkins have troubled me for about a year!Too many in all the areas I'm searching, and after awhile you get confused. My GG grandparents, Isaac & Polly Adkins Brown, had a son named Zachariah Brown, and he m. Martha "Patsy" Ann Gray in Morgan Co.Probably around 1868-70......he is not listed 1870 census, is abt 21. This set of Browns, appear to inter-marry with the Adkins line several times.I have only the one marriage so far with the Gray line.
Isaac and Polly also had : Andrew J., b. 1840, m. Malissa Melvina Adkins Martha Ann Riddle William Brown m. Juliana Akers----my line Dulcena Brown m. Absolam Bishop George Dallas Brown m. Arminda CCornett Zachariah m. Patsy Gray Moses m. Mirmam (Brown?) Rebecca Jane m. Gideon Stigall (Stegall)
Hope some of these are helpful.I will post any Nicholas Co. info I find. Happy Hunting, Beverly
