I am sorry that DNA testing is not an option for you, too bad that all male family members are gone.I feel like the names and migration would up you in the William V Adkins line. Their is a person in our Adkins project that does not match us but is still a distant cousin, his mother was Mary Adkins and married an unrelate Adkins and through a non-parental event the last name end up being Mullins and he still matches our DNA.You Never know what you will find. Check out William V Adkins 1690's VA and see if you can find any connections, there is a lot of data on this family group. Below I am sending you a couple of emails with links to search also my Family Tree page ishttp://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/a/d/k/John-Julian-Adkins-jr/http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/a/d/k/John-Julian-Adkins-jr/I hope you can find something that helps.
Hello John and Julian,
I believe you two are our first DNA powered connection.Well perhaps second, David and I were 70% certain from other evidence and used DNA to increase the odds.
Go to results on the Adkins DNA Project and take a look at "results".I am 98% sure you are linked in the manner I show.As soon as possible I want all of us to have our ancestry posted as shown.Since you two are precedent, I am especially interested in your suggestion & comment.
