George Atkerson (Son of Rev. Elias Atkerson) married Paulina Snider.They are my great grandparents.
George had the following brothers and possibly one other sister: Elias, William, John W., Nathanial, Samuel, Emeline, George, and Jubal.
Emeline was born about 1875 in Tennessaee (Perhaps Smith County)
Emeline married Maxwell C. Seagroves and had the following children: Elias G, Rebecca, William Henry, M. J. Benjamin and Catherine.
George and Paulina are buried in Blackjack Cemetery, Simpson County, Kentucky.Paulina's gravestone mispells her name (Perlina)
Two aditional notes:
1. Paulina's parents are buried 200 yards from where I now live (Peden Cemetery, Simpson County, KY)Johns Loop Road
2. I have an old silver spoon engraved with the initials PSA (Paulina Snider Atkerson) that was made from melted Confederate money and given to me by an aunt.
Thomas,I have considerbly more information I can share.Additionally, a second cousin by marriage, John Venable is quite the genealogist and is the source of much of the information I'm providing.
Rather than going through Genealogy.com I suggest we communicate via e-mail.My e-mail address is:
