Beniah Parkins has been a puzzle to all of us searching the Parkins names. I feel reasonably sure that the name is Parkins but I believe he hasn't been tied to any line. I'm sure he's not my line so I don't pay much attention to him any more. I don't know his children except for a few that are in the Greenbrier County Death Records. Sorry I can't give you any positive help but I think Parkins is the first choice for surname.
