Hi, I went through some of my records the only James Adkins I have is the son of William Adkins & Martha ??.He was born Abt. 1846 in VA.He was married to a Virgina ??.I'll keep looking through my records, I'm sure I seen more James than that.If I find it I will let you know... I know how you feel, I've had a hard time locating several members of my family.It's like they just disappeared off the face of the earth-LOL. WEll good luck w/ your research & I'll keep looking for that name.
