These Adkins/Atkins are a hard bunch to sort, connect and verify. This is an Adkins/Atkinsthat I just can't seem to connect back to William and Elizabeth Parker Adkins but I think he does SOMEWHERE....but where? **James Atkinson or Adkinson (shows this way on the RW document.), born 3 April 1747 in Pittyslvania Co, VA and died abt. April 1837 in Pike Co., KY. He was in the Battle of Gilford where he was wounded. Applied for pension 24 December 1833 in Pike Co., KY When he died he left no widow but he left several son's,names not given. ** (All of the above information is documented in his RW Pension records. I think this is the same James who'se surname is later found as Adkins.)
The birth location is interesting as well as the location of Pike Co., KY plus a record I found in Floyd Co., KY for a James Adkins who may be the same person...
**On the third day of June, 1815 came James Adkins before me, Spencer Adkins, one of the Commonwealth's Justice of the Peace in and for the County of Floyd and State of Kentucky, and made oath that he lost one certain mare, her color was black and perhaps one saddle mark white or curled hair and she left himself one wart on her left ear and her age is about 8 years old and in about this springI James Adkins do certify that I traded the certain mare above mentioned.The said mare left me, was in and about the 10th of May in the year 1814, and Jane Ross was a witness.Be it known that the above mentioned mare had one certain bell that I had about 15 years, it had a double strap with leather like old stirrup leather....The 13th day of June came John Belcher before me, Spencer Adkins, JP and made oath that he hear James Belcher buy of Charles Drake one certain black mare that strayed away from James Adkins could ever was found and said that the same mare above mentioned was saw in the possession in and about the 11th or 12th of May of Gorden Cloyds, and the same mare was to be the same James Belcher's own property. SIGNED:James Adkins **
Can anyone place or give me the parents/connectionof this James Adkins?What appears to be some of his descendants later are found in Morgan and Elliott Co., KY.
