Marilyn,There is a cemetary by Carthage Mo.,where an Adkinson family was camped by a spring and a couple of the children died.That period was around 1860.The family took their wagon wheels strightened them out and made a grave plot for the children. I am from a Hamilton line and was at that cemetary looking for a baby named Bythal Hamilton when I found that one. I haven't found out anything on those children. The genealogy society put a marker there or the city.It is at Fidelity corners,at hwy.71 and I-44 magor cross roads N.S.E. and W. Bev S.W. MO.
