Dear Barbara: I located your posting to Patsy regarding the Adkins, Palmers and Griffiths Families. I found your posting to be very interesting because within the families that I am researching is my great, great-grandfather George Davis who was born in 1808 in Nova Scotia.He married my great, great-grandmother, Clarissa Rice Cotton-Smith-Davis on February 10, 1842 in Savannah, and members of the family are buried in the same burial lot in Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia that Thomas Adkins is buried. The Thomas Adkins whom I am searching was originally buried in the old Colonial Cemetery in Savannah on November 2, 1816, and was reburied in Laurel Grove Cemetery around 1849-1853. Laurel Grove Cemetery opened I think in 1849. I am going to write to the Director of Cemeteries/Public Works in Savannah, and see if his office can shed some light on the background of this Thomas Adkins or why he was moved from Colonial Cemetery. The families that I am tracing come from Virginia, through the Old Barnwell District, S. C. and into Georgia at Savannah, Darien and Springfield, Georgia and in the case of George Davis, from Nova Scotia to Savannah, GA. Thank you again for your kindness and help with the family. Anything that you could tell me regarding the Adkins Family and Davis Family would be appreciated. I was born and reared in Savannah. Have a happy holiday season and new year ahead. Sincerely, Carole H. Melson, Marietta, Georgia USA.
