Im searching for the death certificate information on Reuben Adkins born approx. 1836.He was last found on the 1880 census with his wife Sarah at the age of 44. Hoping this will lead to his mother's maiden name.His parents are John and Nancy Adkins. Sources say Nancy's maiden name is Morrison..but research shows otherwise. Dates dont match, siblings dont match...etc.

ALSO: STILL searching for John's parents as well.John was born about 1811 VA. Currently awaiting death certificate information from Putnam County on "a John" that seems to match who I am looking for, in hopes that it will lead to his parents names. My research has led me to this family:
Reuben's parents: 1870 U.S. Census • West Virginia • Cabell • Barboursville page 541 Adkins, John S...age 60VA/WV Nancy....age 60 John...age 26 KY Mary...age 25 (wife of John Jr) WV Olaner?? age 1 WV
So, from there, I began searching for John "Jr".....and found what seems to be the same family in 1880: Putnam County WV Adkins, John..age 69 VA VA VA-----------widowed/or divorced Delilah (2nd wife?) age 38 KY VA VA David...age 1 WV VA KY John age 36 KY VA KY-----------widowed/or divorced James O (Olaner??). ..age 12 WV VA KY William ..age 10 WV VA KY
