I just read your last message and am interested in your research.My Grandpa's name is Lewie Adkison b. 1909 and lived in Houston, Mo.He was married to Lucy Vaughan b. 1911 in 1933 in Rolla, Mo.His father's name was John Russell Adkison.I believe that this is the same family as yours.I believe that John Russell and Samantha Gan are resting in the friendship cemetery in Fort Leonardwood.My grandpa had 3 brothers,Harry (Cabool), Roy (Robert Leroy - Waynesville -was postmaster there), and Omer (Cabool). My Great Grandpa was named John Russell b.?and was married to Chloe Melissa Payne b.? around Whorton, Mo,not 100% sure though on location.If you have any other information or have any questions (since we could be family)give me an e-mail and I will call my mother and see if she knows anything else.Her name is Sylvia Darlene and has 2 brothers and 1 sister as follows: Dewain C., Deloris Arlene, and Dwight Ivan.I hope some of this helps.Hope to hear from you soon.
