Elijah H. Adkins & Susie Lee Couch married June 05, 1885, marriage location: Collinsburg, LA. Elijah died 1935 he may have been in Hico, TX.
Children: Jennie Lee Adkins b: January 31, 1891, Collinsburg, LA., d: Oct 7, 1976 Anson, Jones Co., TX. Bessie Lou Bell Adkins b: July 9, 1900; d: Dec. 21, 1932. Also, a son (name unknown) that was killed in WWI.
Jennie Lee Adkins, married William Lovelady Campbell, November 13, 1907, Avoca, Jones Co., TX. So they must have moved from Louisiana late 1800's or early 1900's. Jennie Lee & William Lovelady Campbell are my husbands grandparents. We have been told that Jennie & Bessie's mother was a full blood Indian or had some Indian blood or it may have been Susie's Mother.
Bessie Lou Bell Adkins married Ernest Baker. A living daughter and a son that died were born in this marriage.
Susie Lee Couch had two bachelor brothers, George and Sam and one lived near Lueders,TX., and one possibly near Aspermont, TX.
Interested in knowing more about both the Adkins and Couch side of the family. We don't have birth dates, date of deaths and where they are buried on either of them or their parents names or location. We know very little about Jennie & Bessie's parents.
Anyone have any information about these families? Thanks.
