HI Melanie, I am in hopes that Deborah will see this posting I am making too, as we have IVY/ IVEY family in common, I believe, just as I have the HINSON/ FIELDSin common with your ATKINS/ HINSON.I also am aware that the ATKINS in Anson Co. NC had connections to the PRINCE EDWARD CO. VA line of DAVISONS/ DAVIDSONS.So far I can't prove that these PE CO. VA line of DAVIDSONS are our line in Hickman Co. TN, but they could be. So that would be one other ATKINS connection too if I can ever make that connection to the PE CO. VA line of DAVISONS.The IVY family are in our DAVIDSON lines in McNairy Co. TN.Here goes . .
The IVY/ IVEYS are in McNairy Co. TN and intermarrying with our DAVIDSONS ( maternal line for me ) of Hickman and McNairy Co's TN.We see the surnames of GARNER, DAVIDSON, BARKER, WOOD, WOMBLE, ROGERS, JOHNSON, CROUSE, HICKS, SHEFFIELD, PATTERSON, MOORE and others who intermarried with this IVY group in McNairy Co. TN areas.
The ATKINS are in my own HINSON line through the marriage of ASA ATKINS to WINIFORD HINSON as you know.Winiford Hinson Atkins is the sister to my own GGGG Grandmother SARAH/ SALLY HINSON who md. JAMES FIELDS of Anson Co. NC.So in my direct line of HINSON/ FIELDS are the surnames of ROGERS, DAVIDSON,ROBERTSON, GREENE, SPELLERBERG, HARRELL, CHRISTIAN, SPAIN, BURCH, MORGAN, COWDREY, STOUT, SLINKER, RICHESIN, PETTIT, MEBANE, GROOM and others.
In the WINIFORD HINSON/ ASA ATKINS lines are the BOWDENS and others.
The PATTERSONS within that IVY/ DAVIDSON line are in CHESTER CO. TN but have not researched them enough to know where they were prior to Chester Co. TN.The DAVIDSONS were in McNairy Co. TN and Chester Co. TN and had arrived there from HICKMAN CO. TN and before that were out of NC it is thought.
