I notice you have posted messages to both the Stokes and the Adkins boards. I am assuming you are a descendant of both families. I am also a descendant of both families.
I descend from Margaret Ann Stokes, the daughter of the Brice Stokes who you referred to in your message #2285 in Oct. 2001 (a Stokes message). Bryson or "Brice" married Mary Clark and they had 9 children, Margaret Ann being the oldest.
Margaret Ann had an illegitimate son she named Bryson and then she later married Enoch Adkins. Margaret & Enoch were my gr-gr-grandparents.
By my information, the Adkins and Stokes intermarried several times.
If you need other Adkins info. I may be able to help. My Stokes info is a bit more limited.
