Ronnie, Who has set you up as the supreme judge as whether the parents of William Adkins have been found or not? True there is not a will from John Adkins, who died intestate. This John is the wife of Anne Pew Childers. Ronnie, I have done a lot of research on this family, by the way, at your request. I have posted my findings on this forum. For you to say there is not one "whit of evidence to even suggest who is father was" is not only irresponsible of you but unfair to me. The Childers and Adkins families have always intermarried, even in Wayne Co. WVA. Here is something for you to ponder. Evidence can weigh greatly in certain forms of debate. To prove evidence wrong, you must offer proof against the evidence, the source of the evidence, or the method used obtaining them. To prove them misleading, you must have evidence backing up your accusation.
