Yes, I believe that Fanny was the d/o Winston Adkins who d. in Grainger Co TN ca.1833 and that he most likely was the Winston who m. 1798 in Pittsylvania Co VA to Molley Allen Thacker.
It is possible that Winston Adkins was the s/o Henry & Elizabeth Adkins of Pittsylvania Co VA.According to Court orders of Pittsylvania County, VA in 1787, three children, Milly, Winston, and Winright, were declared to be orphans of Henry and Elizabeth Adkins. Some believe Winston & Winright both moved to Pike Co KY; however there were men by that name also in Grainger Co TN. Most likely the Adkins in Pike Co KY were related to the ones in Grainger Co TN and Pittsylvania Co VA.
