Who was the Joel Adkins,born abt. 1870 in VA and lived in Floyd, Pike and Morgan Co, KY? For a long time my file showed Joel Adkins who married Rachel Emmerson as the Joel Adkins who died in Morgan County, KY in 1856.Now I am sure what I had was wrong. I think probably the Joel Atkinson who married Rachel Emmerson 1780 in Pittsylvania Co., VA was the same Joel Atkinson who shows in different records in Lincoln Co., KY and died there prior to March 1808. There are documents which proves there was at least a Samuel Emmerson who lived, died and left a will naming one deceased child as Rachel Atkinson.Samuel is the name of the father of the bride on marriage record of Joel Adkins and Rachel Emmerson in Pitttsylvania Co., VA. Some have posted records showing the Joel Atkinson/Adkins who married Sarah Stanley in Pittsylvania Co., VA in 1800 is the one who died in Morgan or Fentress County, TN sometime in the 1830's.
I am now at a loss as to the wife of the Joel Adkins born in VAand later found in Floyd, Pike and Morgan Co., KY.He died there in 1856 and the record shows his parents as Richard and Molly Adkins.His age at death is recorded at 100 years. My question is does anyone know or have further information on the Joel Adkins who died in Morgan Co., KY in 1856?IF he is not the one who married Rachel Emmerson or the one who married Sarah Stanley then who did he marry? I appreciate any help or thoughts on this.
