My grand aunt, MARTHA L. EGGLESTON, b 1851 in Corinth, NY, married one ISRAEL(?) ATKINS, b abt 1846 in NY, around the year 1869. They lived near Bancroft, Shiawasse co, Michigan. Mr. Atkins was a blacksmith by profession. They had six children that I know of, a son and daughter (whose given names I can't read on the census) born abt 1872 and 1874; a son named Lewis(?), born abt 1875; a son named Israel(?)Jr., born abt 1876; a daughter named Bertha, b abt 1878; and a son named Samuel, b abt 1880. If anyone is of this Atkins line or otherwise knows about these individuals and would care to discuss them, please contact me via the email address listed. Thanks much. Dennis K.
