Ancestry of Sherrod Sheffield Akin Akins Adkins

I've found the following information given as the Akin-line ancestry of Sherrod Sheffield Akin (also listed as Akins, Adkins) born in Wayne County Georgia.

(3) Sherrod Sheffield Akin - b: 10 Jan 1816, Wayne County, GA d: 1 Apr 1863, Wayne County, GA
...married 24 Jun 1835, Wayne County, GA
......Elizabeth Sherrod Kemp - b: 1820, Wayne County, GA d: 1858, GA
...married 12 Oct 1859, Wayne County, GA
......Mary Ellen Liles Rumph - b: 27 Jun 1843, Wayne County, GA d: 1925, Mt Pleasant, Wayne County, GA

(2) William Samuel Akin b: 1788, GA d: 1850, FL
...married 1806, GA
......Flora Sheffield b: 5 Dec 1790, Beaufort, Beaufort County, SC d: 12 Aug 1836, Wayne, GA

(1) James Akin b: 1788 GA d: 1850, FL
......Winney (?)

I've also seen information going back from Sherrod through William Joseph Akin to Benjamin Akin and Sarah Holloway.

In addition I've seen some list Sherrod's birthplace as Bulloch GA.

Does anyone have any information that cleans up some of this confusion?
