Joseph Adkins and Dicey Halbert Adkins
Posted by: Catherine Webb (ID *****3490) Date: October 22, 2011 at 20:31:49

My fourth great grandfather was Joseph Adkins. He was born around 1800 near Knox, Tennessee (we think). He married Dicey Halbert on 28 Oct 1825 in Knox. They had two children - Elijah and Nancy Elizabeth. Joseph was appointed overseer of roads for Knox County in April of 1828. The only other record we can find for Joseph is the settling of his estate which starts in January 1830. Beyond that, I am stuck at Joseph. I would LOVE any other information anybody has on my Joseph.

(I an descended through Elijah.....his son James Buchanan Adkins....his son Samuel Lee Adkins.... Dicey did remarry after Joseph's death. She married Aaron Harbison and had 7 more children.)
