William and Della were Solomon’s children by his first wife btb Millie Ann Adkins d/of George M. Adkins and Mary J. Wickler…

Hello Shelia,
Thank you for your responding to my message. William and
Della were Solomon’s children by his first wife btb Millie
Ann Adkins d/of George M. Adkins and Mary J. Wickler.
Solomon and Mary J. were 2nd cousins.
The 1900 Census of Elliott Co., KY lists William and Della
but shows that Amanda and Solomon had 1 child…that would
be Dewey. The 1910 Census shows Mandy living apart from
Solomon w/Mary Lee. It shows that she had 5 children, w/4
living. They would have been Dewey-1899, Cecil-1900,
Elmer-1905, and Mary Lee-1906. She probably lost one between Cecil and Elmer.
Did you know that Mary Lee was not Solomon’s daughter?
That may explain why Mandy and Solomon were not living
together in 1910. On Mary Lee’s DC, her father is listed
as a Lewis. The boys must have stayed close to Solomon
since he and Dewey and Cecil are known to have resided
in Hunnewell pct, Greenup Co., KY between 1900 and 1920.
If you would like more info on the “boys” you may contact
me directly at: (OMITTED)
This has been a real puzzle for me! Thanks for your input.
Someone out there MUST know about Cecil and Elmer! Let me
know if you pick up on anything. Sincerely, Carol Vaughan

Thank you Carol, I’ll make all the necessary updates to the tree.

I found an Elmer s/o Laban & Elberta Perry married to Risa in 1930 Elliott, with a 7.5 month old son named Cecil Adkins. This could be the family.  They either moved out of town, or maybe adopted the kids out???

We’ll see if anyone knows what became of them. It was a small town, so people talk. I’ll check some archives and see what I can find.

The way you see people is the way you treat them and the way you treat them is what they become. ~ Goethe
