Bill,Thanks for the help.My dad is Dale Adkison b. 1934 in Sikeston, MO his parents were George Marvin Adkison b. 1906 Bardwell, Ky and Ollie Agnes Ward b. 1914 Sikeston, MO.George Marvin Adkison's father was Frank (I believe his name may have been Benn) Adkison b. Abt. 1873 in New Madrid County, MO. Frank's father was John Adkison b. Abt. 1836 in Tennessee.John Adkison's wife was Missouri Adkison.They came to New Madrid County, MO btwn 1868-1870 from Tennessee.Before moving to Missouri fromTennessee they were in Illinois where their frist child, a daughter Rachel Ebia Adkison was born.John & Missouri's parents were also from Tennessee according to the 1880 census.
John's children were: Rachel, William E., John Riley, Nancy, George Wiley, Henry. On the 1880 census there was a nephew that lived with them named Willie McGill 21 years old born in MO, his parents born in Tenn.
I am looking for information on John & Missouri's parents and sibblings.As far as John's children, I don't know about William, Henry, Nancy, Henry and their descendants. Thanks again, Linda
