Hi, Sarah, According to my files, Sherrod Adkins, Jr. married Abigail Johnson. Their son, Archibald, was born in Branchland (now Lincoln County)in 1851. I don't have the place of birth for their other children. Sherrod Adkins, Jr. was the son of Sherwood or Sherrod, Sr. and Sarah "Sally" Lucas.I am personally acquainted with a number of their descendants, although I am not one.
No help on the Sherrod who died in 1936, except that he was not either of the above men.
I'd like your information about the murder, at your convenience.
