I have a new email address so wanted to post it in case anyone responds to my Pulaski Cty MO Adkison query.I know more now than I did when I first posted.
The earliest I can find is James Robert Adkison ca 1855 and his wife Samantha Gan b. 1858 in MO, married about 1876. They had four children that I know of so far: William B, John Russell, James Joseph and Samuel Robert; there may have been more. I would appreciate any help on this family. Thanks, Pat Adkison
