My grandfather,Eli Adkins,Jr. lived in the Cheatham-Montgomery County area in Tennessee. I believe he was married to Mary Ida Smith. His father,Eli Adkins,Sr. was born in the early to middle 1800's,probably in Kentucky. I have found references born in 1820 & 1836-7.But neither have any mention of an Eli Adkins under the listing of children. Any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated!
