Hi Ron, well I hit the wrong button before I got this message typed up.Did your ELIJAH ADKINS marry MALINDA LOUISE ________? I think that my ELIJAH was born in 1845 or 1846.He is listed in the 1880 AL. census for Marshall co. as ELIZAH and shows that he and his wife MALINDA were born in Tn.They havesons named WILLIAM and FRASHER D.(actually FRED FRAZIER or FRAZER FRED) and a daughter named ROSA A.(she was called MAMIE). ELIJAH died later part of 1890's and is buried in the BASS or BUSH cemetery in Birmingham,Al. may actually be in Irondale Al.next to Birmingham.MALINDA married a man named ARTHUR GUISE/GUYSE/GUIS in 1903 or 1904.I am decended from FRAZER ADKINS.If this is your line I need to correspond with you as I have been looking for my ADKINS family for a number of years and have had little luck.I will be glad to share what I have with you.Hope we can help each other.Charlie.
