Edward R. Adkins b. May 1852 in MO.Father is born in KY and mother in IL.Possibly has a brother named Andrew.Edward is in Salt Lake City, UT in 1880 and in Tooele, UT in 1900 and 1910.Andrew b.c. 1849 is a miner in Ophir, Tooele Co., UT in 1880.There is an Andrew born in KY in 1849 to Rial Adkins and Elizabeth Jane Adkins, but Elizabeth Jane is not born in Illinois.Both Andrew and Edward list their mother as being born in Illinois so this may be the wrong couple.
Edward married Freda Vollenweider of Tooele.She was Mormon.We hypothesize that Edward's parents joined the Mormon church.
We're heading to Salt Lake City in April.Any ideas or clues on what to search for Edward's parents would be appreciated.
