I don't think it was Sherranlynn.: (But, maybe possibly could be a relation somewhere down the line or something. If I could ever get that far.
I think the main thing I was thinking when I posted was, I saw the info. at the bottom of your post...
Marriage Index WV 1863-1900 CD# 241 Raliegh County The Hiram E. Adkins, Anna L...
Like I say, I know for sure he married more than once. Because my GGrandmother was Nannie, she had the son I know for sure name Cossie Earl (Hearl) Adkins. My father believes another son was named after the father Hiram. A Hiram E. Adkins Jr. Everyone calling him "Junior".
It has been said my grandfather Cossie, changed his middle name. He was born Cossie Hearl Adkins in 1914 VA. Whether WV or these areas Wise, Coeburn, Norton etc.. I dont know yet. He changed his middle name in adulthood from Hearl to Earl. Reasons were unknown.
I am new to all this searching and tracing. So finding things have been difficult. But, I keep plugging along.
Thanks for the info. though. It gives me hope that my Hiram is out there somewhere. LOL
