Please see all posts concerning Jacob Harley and Mary Adkins. The story goes that Jacob left/abandoned Mary Adkins for whatever reason and returned to England. Mary went to her brother’s home in Beech Fork and settled there. All the children took the “Adkins” Surname. The Earl died in England and left his oldest son his entire fortune, but the son hated him and refused it.
