Write list of New Year’s resolutions was on my calendar today, I decided not to for many reasons, the main one was, that I didn’t complete last years list.

Someone once joked that a New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. Each year we all sit around and try to think of ways to put a new spin on the same old problems. Mine is to just find out more about what I already know. To finish some old projects and not to start any new ones until they’re done. I hope I can do that.


Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!


Dear Amanda,

In response to your comment,

I was looking for my family tree found out my gggggrandfather peter tuner was born in virgina 1826 I think his father was charles or thomas but that were im running into the adkins anyone got info on them?

I found so many listed, but none married to an Adkins or Atkins or Atkinson? The Peter Turner’s I found married:
• Susanah Kinsley
• Ann A. Norsworthy
• Elisa Ann Edwards
• Penina Brammer
• Amanda R. Cooper
• Emelina T. Blair

What Adkins’ did you find?

I’m sorry that I couldn’t be of more help. I will continue to look, but will need a few more details than that. I need: who he married; names of known children; where he lived; and when; follow up on noteworthy experiences, or anything that ties him to the family.

Thanks for you comment and Welcome to the Family,
Sheila Jean Adkins Metcalf
