John Adkins wife: Catharine Graham Son: Abraham Adkins Son: George Adkins Son: Abner Adkins
Catharine Graham died when Abraham was around 10yrs old.John Adkins gave the boys up to a foster family; Thomas J McWilliams or Thomas McFadden are possible foster family names.George we believe either died during the Civil War in a federal prison or changed his last name to the last name of his adoptive family.Abner, as you know, lived peacefully and died in Iowa.
Abraham Adkins is my ggg grandfather. He married a Mary Hispley who gave him 2 kids: Mary Catherine Adkins abt 1850 (named after the mother) and George Andrew abt 1854 (named after his brother).Mary died soon after George was born and Abraham re-married a Julia Katherine Withem.They had many more kids together.
Abraham married Mary in Ohio 1841 and Mary died in 1855.Abraham traveled through Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, and Arkansas where he finally settled and presumably died in Little River Co.
John Adkins was born in 1798 Va (or Maryland depending on which map you are looking at) and his parents were Abraham Adkins (1770 Loudoun Co Va) and Elizabeth ? (1782 Va).
