Bonnie, I am going to send this on GenForum on the chance that others might also be researching this line.I will give the direct lines and if you want the side lines, I'll need to make copies and send by regular mail.
John Adkison & Frances - some suspect that her maiden name was Barnett, because of the oldest child's name, but it has not yet been proven.He was 59 in 1813 when he died in Madison Co., VA.I was in Madison Co. last fall but all their vital records have been sent to Richmond except for wills and deeds.I found two deeds where he and his wife were involved, but no wills.
Their children - that I can prove - are: Barnett, age 69 on 1850 census, md. Eleanor Saunders (age 62 on 1850 census) 25 Jul 1803 in Madison Co.; Thomas, b. 4 Aug 1777, d. in 1818 in Mercer Co., KY and md. Sarah Silvey (Silva) 19 Jan 1802 in Orange Co., VA; Frances (Frankie), who md. Peyton Dawson 7 Feb 1814 in Madison Co.; John md. Betsy (Elizabeth) Silvey 27 Mar 1810 in Mercer Co., KY; Sarah (Sally) md. Moses Silvey 12 Jan 1804 in Madison Co. and Mary md. William Silvey 13 Oct 1801 in Orange Co., VA.As I mentioned I believe that my Daniel is also a son because he md. in Madison Co. and fits in age wise as well as the name of his children fit in with the names of the others.There are three more children which I also believe belong in this family, but I can't prove it at this time.
Barnett & Eleanor's children are:
Catherine md. (1) William Tyler 18 Jul 1822 in Madison Co. and (2) Jacob Weiford 22 Oct 1834 in Pocahontas Co., VA (WV); William md. (1) Martha Jones 1 Dec 1831 in Madison Co. and (2) Mary; Abel, b. 1 Jun 1807, d. 16 Nov 1883 at Buckeye, Pocahontas, WV, md. (1) Susannah F. Adkison (possibly a first cousin - marriage record indicates David as her father, but no record of a David has been found) 27 Jan 1831 in Madison Co. and (2) Rebecca Frances Hughes 4 Feb 1855 in Pocahontas Co.I have seen their gravestones - he is buried between the two wives; Daniel md. (1) Mary Holmes 15 Sep 1830 in Madison Co. and (2) Sarah - he eventually left Pocahontas Co. sometime after the death of a daughter who drowned and supposedly Barnett and Eleanor went with him; Isaac A., b. 1811 in Madison Co., d. 20 Nov 1891 in Pocahontas Co. and md. Martha Young 5 Feb 1835; Frances B., b. 26 Sep 1817 in Madison Co., d. 20 Sep 1906 and md. (1) James W. Silva (Silvey) in 1837 and (2) Joseph Rogers; Nancy Ann md. Benjamin F. Taylor 1 Mar 1838 in Pocahontas Co.; Martha Jane (also referred to as Mariah) md. James Arthur 16 Dec 1841 in Pocahontas Co.; Lucinda, b. 26 Nov 1826, d. 4 Nov 1887 and md. Joshua Buckley 18 Dec 1845 at Buckeye, Pocahontas, VA (WV).
I don't have any info on Benjamin and Nancy, would appreciate receiving what you have to fill in that gap.
