I just recently ran into a web page that showed a "1/2 Cherokee Adkins" as the 1st? wife of Nathaniel Adkins of Pittsylvania Co VA & eastern KY, late 18th century. Nathaniel appears in Pittsylvania Co VA records & then on the 1820 Fed census for Floyd Co KY. I have not been able to contact the author of the page, unfortunately.
Nathaniel apparently married twice. He had 2 daughters Nancy & Phebe by his 1st wife; & 1 dtr & 1 son Sallie & William by the 2nd wife. His son William m. Elizabeth Thacker. All 3 daughters had children by Absolem Thacker.
I have so far been unable to find any info on Nathaniel's 2? marriages, or anything on his wives. If the 1820 Floyd Co matchup is correct, then the 45+ white female may have been Nathaniel's 2nd wife.
Does anyone have any more info on this family? In particular, what is the source for the "1/2 Cherokee" claim?
