If my memory is correct, Milliton Adkins was the surety when either Elijah and Nancy Hunter Adkins married in Montgomery Co., VA or when Moses married the Hunter sister. I have always thought Milton or Milliton Adkins was the father of Moses and Elijah. He shows up in a lot of the Montgomery Co., VA tax records. Elijah and Nancy Adkins named a daughter Millie. Was she one of the daughters who married a Wallace? Parker did not continue as a name in the group that moved to TN.
Levi Adkins (1794-1877) was my ancestor. His son Joseph Adkins (1826-1900) was my next ancestor. His son, my dad's grandfather, was Elijah Spicer Adkins (1859-1928). I have always thought Spicer may be a clue somewhere up the line.
In 1838, Nancy Hunter Adkins, Levi and his wife and a couple of his sisters and their husbands received letters of dismissal from Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church in Knox County and came to Anderson County and were charter members of Bethel Baptist Church (near the Norris/Clinton I-75 exit). Was Eliza part of that group? I have that listing somewhere.
