Lori, I just found your message and wanted to tell you that my g.g.grandfather, John Henry Adkins, was the brother of your James Meador Adkins.
Deloris is descended from John A. Adkins (father of James)brother...Pleasant Adkins.James' mother was Susan Meador of Franklin Co., VA. The Adkins family migrated to Round Prairie Township, Boydsville, Callaway Co., MO, in the mid 1850's, buying their first land in 1857.
I would also very much like to get in touch with you by email.
Sincerely, Linda Siekman Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
