I'm trying to track the ancestry of some ggg-grandparents by the name of Adkins or Atkins.Census info is all I have so far and different years have different spellings.
John Adkins (born about 1800-02 in North Carolina) and his wife (unknown)moved to Giles County Tenn prior to about 1834 when their daughter Mary Ann was born and probably before 1829. John's momma may have been Nancy Adkins (born about 1767) who was living with him and his children at the time of the 1850 census in Giles county, Tenn.
A couple of notes I found on the net suggest that John's daddy might have been named Richard, and there was a Richard Atkins in Giles County at some point during the early decades of the 1800s.
John's daughter Mary Ann was my gg-grandmother.Her brothers and sisters listed in 1850 include W.H.A. (b about 1829), Josiah (about 1831), Nancy (ca. 1835), John M. (ca. 1841), Martha C. (ca. 1844), Augustin L. (ca. 1848) and Benjamin F. (ca. 1848).
If you can share any info, I'd appreciate it very much.
