Hi Ronnie, I went to the library in Ashland yesterday and checked the Quaker records for Henrico County, Virginia. Thomas Atkinson's marriage to Sarah Hughes is listed. The information that I found here sure disqualifies my former belief that Thomas and our William were brothers. Thomas and John and Elisa ( Elizabeth)? are the only Adkins/Atkinsons listed for Henrico Monthly Meeting. Here are two entries:
1711, 4,8. John resigned as clerk of MM having quarreled with Samuel Jordan; MM books turned over to ROBERT HUGHES & G.R.Elyson; reconciled to mtg in 1711/12,1,7. Atkinson mentioned that Hughes & Elyson were his friends & were responsible for his appointment as Clerk; he seemed to be a mbr of the New Kent PM (MM)?
1713/14,12,12. Thomas 1tm Sarah Hughes, Jr.
Tom Atkinson posted on the Atkinson forum, No. 1812:
Sarah Hughes Atkinson was a daughter of ROBERT HUGHES and his wife Sarah Tarleton.
