I saw your trail of conversation and I'm wondering if I can throw a few names your way to see if you recognize them. Everyone seems to be a bit further back than I am, but I'm having a difficult time tracking my great, great grandfather's parents. His name was Baylis F. Atkins (1840-1914. He was born in Hall Co., Ga, but either one or both of his parents is listed as coming from S.C.
I have found a B. Atkins (10 year old male in Hall Co. in 1850) living with an elderly woman named Rebecca Atkins. I think this may be his grandmother-- she's from S.C.
I have also been told that His father may have been Abraham or William. He may have had a brother named Hutch B. Atkins. Do these names sound familar?
