I would have to say "Me Neither" on this one. And trust me I know alot of my Adkins cousins and not just by eMail and forums. Of course I have had eMails on this often. But nobody I personally talked to in person, Adkins, Watts, or otherwise have any knowledge or signs of this being true. Perhaps, if there is truth to this and since WV is literally covered in Adkins, either another line of Adkins unrelated was Melungeon, or, if related, married someone who was or descended from Melungeons. I would alos like to point out that if it IS found to be true that I would feel no shame as we all came from somebody. As I have been on the Melungeon GenForum and seen how they are discriminated, for some stupid reason or another.
