Does anyone out there have an Allen Adkins? Jessee Adkins gave Allen as his fathers name on his marriage license in Cabell County VA. Jessee was born 1834 and he married Letha R. Adkins. His mother was Mahala Adkins and she married Samuel Smith. Jesse was living in their household in 1850 so I am "assuming" that Allen was dead at this time. Jessee also had sisters named Almira or Almina, Nancy, Sarah and possibly brothers named Elisha or Lish and Arter or Arthur.
