I have found John Adkison's grave marker in the Indian Creek Cemetary near Brighton, Tennessee. It reads John Adkison Died Nov 5 1876 in the 64th year of his age. Nearby are his son's Jesse Binum Adkison and James Adkison. The 1870 census shows that John was born in Tennessee. The 1840 census also shows John living in Tipton County, Tennessee. Do you know where in Tennessee John was born?
