Hi Larry, I know you posted this quite a while ago, but I found your message on the genforum through a google search. Sorry to hear about your grandfather, Milem's death in 2003, but it was quite a long life. I have updated his page here: (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Adkins-1581) I know how Milem is connected to the Adkins of Saline county, Illinois. William Taylor Adkins was a son of John F Adkins & Margaret Perkins. Not sure about their death dates or burial. John F Adkins' brother, Adam P Adkins is my 2nd great grandfather. John & Adam Adkins were both born in Ohio, the only sons of Lewis Adkins & Mary Snell. Lewis & Mary had five daughters too. I can't find their exact origin in Ohio, but they came to Illinois by 1850. Some of them were known to be sawmill engineers in the communities of Saline County, Illinois. I am working on the Adkins family on a free community collaborative tree website called wikitree. I already have you connected to the tree. All you have to do is respond to my wikitree invitation to become a verified Adkins family member. But I need your current email address to send the invitation. I hope to exchange more information in the future. Thanks for your time, Frederick Sheffield Jr.
