Seeking information on my great great grandparents Lewis Jackson Adkins and Tamsy Carter. Lewis and Tamsy had the following children all born in Kentucky: Cora Lee Adkinsm. John Samuel Rowe Laura Adkinsm. King Tackett John Adkinsm. Bertha Clark Garland Adkinsm. Roxy ? Paris Adkinsm. ?? Joe or Joseph Adkins (killed as a child)
In earlier posts I had Tammy Carter and Sammy Adkins...seems one of the granchildren started calling them Sammy and Tammy and the name stuck, unfortunately that was not their real names. Also another family member thought that it was Paris that was killed as a child but turns out it was little Joe.
Cora was born in 1900, Pike County, Kentucky..this I know, she was my great grandmother. I am not exactly sure what county/counties the others were born but I do know they were born in Kentucky.
Cora married John in West Virginia and Cora's children were born in West Virginia and she died in 1992, Cabell County, West Virginia.
Garland born yr. unknown and diedyr. unknown and county unknown, West Virginia.
Laura born 1891, died in 1974, Cabell County, West Virginia.
John born 1898, died in 1990, Cabell County, West Virginia.
Paris born in yr. unknown and died in yr. unknown was said to have been killed in a mine while working in Kentucky.Was said to have been married when he died.
I am not sure if Joe/Joseph was killed in Kentucky or West Virginia. I also do not have a birth or death date for him. Joe was said to have been the baby of the family.
Laura was said to have had either eleven or thirteen children ALL boys.
This family has been such a brick wall for me. Any help would be so greatly appreciated.
