I will try to help you.Would you happen to know Walter L. [Leroy/loren] Adkins approx year of birth?Where he was born?Where he died?
There are over 50 Walter Adkins Families on the 1920 census.Knowing his approx year of birth or where he was born will certainly narrow that down some.Once I can find him on the census.. I can check for 'neighboring' Adkins families..etcIf I knew where and when he died... I can check for his mothers maiden name in the death records.
Also, I have checked all Walter Adkins families on the 1920 census (those born in WV) and was unable to locate this family.There were only 12 Walters born in WV that came up.The remaining 38+ families are scattered all over the US.Anything you can add that may narrow this down some will be helpful.
