I’m seeking information about the Lincoln County, WV, Elisha ADKINS, b. ca. 1817-1818 who married Louisa MCCOMAS.They were the parents of Susan, Elizabeth and William A. ADKINS, b. ca. 1853.
There is some confusion about the identity of their son, William. He has been listed as William P. (s/o Brison Adkins) and William A.. Family tradition holds that he is William A.. The 1870 Lincoln Co. census lists Elisha ADKINS 53, and his family, wife Louisa 52, children Susan 19, Elizabeth 19, and William P. 16, in Sheridan District, household #54. However, the 1900 Lincoln County census, Laurel Hill District, Household#25 lists William A. Adkins (s/o Elisha and Louisa (MCCOMAS) ADKINS) as head of household, 46, married to Nancy E. SPEARS (d/o Henry Peyton SPEARS and Talitha Ann FRYE).Of their 12 children, the names of their nine living children and spouses were listed. My maternal grandmother, Lelia Jane ADKINS was one of those nine children.
I’m hoping to include information about these ancestors and the family of my maternal grandparents, Millard F. andLelia Jane (ADKINS) ADKINS, in Ronnie Adkins' second book.Information about any of these connections will be greatly appreciated.
