Here is the problem as I see it:

  1. I have him on my tree as the son of Joseph (son of Jesse & Mary Adkins) and Susannah Adkins Adkins. I checked 7 family trees, none agreed as to the parentage. He claims here on his marriage bond to have been born in 1812 Kentucky, that would make him Joseph & Susannah’s son. This Joseph was Birth: abt: 1780 VA Death :8 Oct 1847 in Morgan, Kentucky.
  2. 4 known Joseph Adkins/Atkinson’s the same age – born in Virginia. One never marries just remains in Virginia.
  3. Joel Adkins’ son Joesph (same age) married Elizabeth Fuller in Morgan, Kentucky. So these families run parallel lives.  No positive way to sort them out without death certificates. But we are trying.
  4. I will post all the records I have on hand for Joseph Adkins.  Then you can hash it out with the rest of them.


Personally, I do believe I’m right on this one but without a death certificate we cannot be completely sure.
