Does anyone out there have brothers Elisha and Arter Adkins? They are, according to my great great uncle George Smith, the children of Mahala Adkins. I do not know what year that they would have been born. Mahala was born 1810, so I am assuming that they would have been born no earlier than 1825. I know that in 1850, they are not in the household of Samuel and Mahala Adkins Smith. It is probable that their father's name is Allen Adkins. They would also have a brother named Jesse and a sister named Almina or Elmina.
