I don't know if I could have any relavence because I need info and have info on my Akins line. Not Atkins. I did notice however that your married name seams to be lane. I need info on my Lane side too. All I know is that my gggrandfathers name was Samuel Lane and he was married to Orit ooley. They founded Bloomingdale, Michigan back in 18?? So if you had any info on them that would be great.
