My full name is Elsa Marguerite Adkins-Cline, I was born July 30, 1947 in Quantico, VA, my dad was a Marine. I go by Marguerite or Margy most of the time.I have been looking for my roots.I can not go back as far as you.My father's name was Lloyd B Adkins, born in either Jackson or Insko, KY, Oct 9, 1916 - his brother Roy D. Adkins, bornin either Jackson or Insko, KY, Oct. 27, 1918.Their dad's name was Ova Adkins and mother's Mattie Adkins. Both of my dad's parents died when he was 4 years old.They were raised by my great-grandfather, who's name I do not know, he was just Grandpa, and my great-aunt Cora Adkins, Cora never married.Cora had a brother Arlie Adkins who married a woman named Rebecca, Aunt Becky. They has 6 children, the names I remember were Marguerite, Rod, Kurt and Florella.
My Uncle Roy Adkins was married to my Aunt Betty, who was a nurse, and they adopted two children,Daniel R. Adkins as a baby and around 1960, give or take a year or two, Terry, he was a teenager at the time I met him in 1963.
All of the people I have mentioned were in Ohio, Dayton, Middletown, Hamilton and Miamisburg are the towns I remember.
The stories I heard growing up were that we were related to Present Buchanan, we had Cherokee & Blackfoot and black blood.
I don't know if this will help anyone,if not maybe someone can help direct me where to go from here.
