I am in need of information for John Atkins, b. 1835 in PA. His father was born in VT. His father's name may have been George Atkins, but this is not confirmed. John lived in Bloomfield Twp, Winneshiek Co. Iowa. Wife - Henrietta C. Cornish (b. NY) Children - Ira J. Atkins, Hattie Atkins, Dora Belle Atkins, Charles Atkins ("Charlie Atkins"), William Henry Atkins, Alvin Elsworth Atkins, and Walter Atkins (all born in Iowa).
The Atkins moved to Sherman, TX around 1880. They moved on to Silver City, NM around 1900. While Walter Atkins and others stayed in NM, John Atkins and Henrietta moved to Eureka, CA., William Atkins moved to Stockton, CA.
If you think you might have interest in this or more info for me, please reply to this post or email me at email@example.com What I'm really looking for is more info on John Atkins - I am not sure when he moved to Iowa, where he moved from (possibly PA since he was born there), if George Atkins (who lived in the next town over in Iowa) is his father, or what.The Winneshiek and Iowa Genweb does not have the info I need, the only thing that has really helped has been federal censuses.
