According to some sources, Emily Adkins 1850-1866, daughter of Lewis Adkins and Melcina Hunter, married Mathias Adkins. They are said to have had a daughter Emily J. who married Horace Greeley Adkins. However, Emily J. is supposed to have been born in 1881 but her "mother" Emily died in 1866, according to various records, and that is the date of death on her tombstone at Ranger, West Virginia. Can anyone identify Emily J. or Mathias? He is said to have been born before 1850.
