My Grandmother was Perlina F. Adkins, who married, Albert Russell Gartin.I ran across your inquiry while searching for my line of the Adkins family.
There is a book in the Cabell County Library, Huntington, WV., entitled, "The ADKINS FAMILY of Wayne County, West Virginia, also Cabell, Lincoln and Boone Counties, A GENEALOGOCAL HISTORY, The descendants of WILLIAM AND ELIZABETH (PARKER) ADKINS, of Henrico County, Virginia, from l690 to l990."I have some pages that my son-in-law copied for me from this book.There you will find just about anything you would want to know about Sherrod B.He was the son of Parker and Mary Adkins.He was born in Fincastle Co., Va about, l775, and he married, Christina (Adkins), his first cousin, on, ll February l798, in Montgomery County, Virginia.Christina had a brother named Sherrod, but the one you want to know about is Sherrod B.
Sherrod B. and Christina, had two children, Archibald, born, 26 June l800, who married Mary (Polly) Adkins, daughter of Hezekiah and Mary. Line under her, and Christena, born in l804, in Montgomery Co., VA, who married John Adkins, son of Sherrod and Sarah.Line under him.
Sherrod B. and Christina moved into the Beech Fork area of Cabell/Wayne Counties, WV. around, l8l0 - l8l5, to be with their brothers and sisters.They lived closest to Sherrod, Christina's brother.
Christina died in, l822, and Sherrod B., died in, l859.They are buried beside each other at the old family cemetery near the mouth of Bowen Creek.Their graves have nice markers that are still easy to distinguish dates, names, etc.I hope I have given you some information that will be of help to you.I found my Grandmother and Grandfather in this book.
