I am looking for information concerning my
grandfather Marion Adkins, born about 1871 in
either Morgan or Elliott County, KY. I remember him
mentioning his nephews Guy Adkins and George Walter
Adkins. He may have had a brother named Ike. There
may be some connection to Joseph "Devil Joe" Adkins
that was related to Straley and Annie Day Adkins.
Does anyone have my grandfather listed? Thanks.

I have no information about Marion Adkins but I would be very grateful for any information you have about Straley and Annie. They were my ggg grandparents and info is very hard to come by.

I have info on Straley Adkins. His mother was Catherine Straley (my Straley line), who married William Adkins about 1795-1800 in Giles County, VA. Son Straley was born about 1805 in VA & then they moved to Little Sandy, KY (Morgan County). Straley married Andocia Day & they had about 10 children. (Some of the dates I have don't quite jive, so there may be some error here; would appreciate help if others have more details.) I have tons of info on the Straley family of Virginia & will share.

I am researching William Adkins from Morgan County Ky. He was born about 1802. He married Nancy Hamilton July 29, 1823 in Pike County Ky. I am wondering if he and Straley could be brothers. Do you know where William and Catherine Straley Adkins died? Do you have a copy of the marriage record? Who were William Adkins parents? Any help would be appreciated. Please contact me at dreynol5@comcast.net
Thanks,

Sorry, but I do not have answers to your questions. My info is limited on whether William and Catherine Straley Adkins had other children besides son Straley. Any would have probably been born after 1805. Note also that some researchers think Catherine's husband was Joseph Adkins rather than William, and I don't have proof to prove either way. Good luck.

Thanks so much for responding. I wasn't sure if you where still there, it was such an old post. That is the first I have seen on Joseph Adkins and Catherine Straley. These lines are all new to me. I just feel if we all keep sharing sooner or later someone will have a piece of the puzzle.
My husband's family is from Elliott County Ky. They where in Tazewell County Va, Pike county Ky, and Morgan County Ky. Some of the surnames are: Adkins, Flannery, Mays, Click, Reynolds, Johnson, Howard, and Whitt. I know there are others. So if anyone needs any info please feel free to ask. I am glad to share.
Thanks again,
