I hate to "muddy" the waters but I descend from the Madison Co.,VA.Adkisson's who then moved to what is currently Pocahontas Co.,WV. My 3x great-grandparents were:Barnette Adkisson & Eleanora Saunders. They were married in Madison Co.,VA. on 25 July 1803.His parents were: John Adkisson & Frances? Her parents were: Moses Saunders & Diana Stone. I descend further through Banette & Eleanora Adkisson's daughter,Mariah Jane,who married James Arters/Arthur on 16 Dec.1841 in Pocahontas Co.,VA.(now WV.).They had 14 children then.
I just thought I would add my line of Adkisson's to your conversation.Thanks!
