Thanks for your reply and offer for assistance. I agree with you, there are too many Walter Adkins lines especially when you have very little information to work with. Since my last posting, I have found more information, i.e., he was married before Neva Axtell. Here is what I know and have estimated.
Walter L. [either Loren or Leroy] Adkins b. [est. 1870-1885] d. pos in the 40's. He was a Baptist traveling tent preacher in the 30's in the southeast U.S.
Married Mary Katherine Padgettes date: unk They had one child that I know of:
1. Clayton Marcellaus Adkins b. 5 Sep 1908 Hagerstown, MD d. Oct 1967 Huntington Park, Ca. [Obtained his Social Security card in Peoria, Ill. Dec 1936]
(2) wife: Neva Axtell b. 22 Jun 1893 Cleone, CA. d. 13 May 1933. Married 27 Jul 1915 Healdsburg, Sonoma County, Ca. Children (3):
1. Louise C. Adkins B. 1 Dec 1916 2. Walter Leroy Adkins b. 27 May 1918 Elizabeth, Wirt County, West Virginia d. 10 May 1990 Tucson, Az. [Obtained his Social Security card in Peoria, Ill. Nov 1936] 3. Marvis Adkins b. Feb 1925
I am looking for information on my Grandfather, Walter L. Adkins. I believe his father may also have be named Walter L. Adkins. The "L's" are different. As you can tell by where he was married and the birth of two of his children, he moved around. I am also looking for data on Clayton M. Adkins
I am also named Walter L. Adkins. My middle name is Lawrence. I was always told that there were four of us named, Walter L. Adkins.
