I am trying to get information about a Louis/Lewis Atkins who was born in Va. on May 5, 1785 but married Elizabeth Monroe in Granger Co. Tenn. in 1804. All I've read is that he is from Virginia and possibly had a brother Richard, who migrated to Missouri and nothing else. I would like more info on his ancestors.
Also his son Elige b May 4, 1814 who was married to Elizabeth Mullens, had a son named William "Arch"(er?)Atkins around 1849 who married Sarah Catherine Booker in Union Co. Tenn. Some sources say she remarried to a Jasper Hickle around 1800. Others say she married Jasper before William Arch. I know that she and Willim "Arch"(er?) had four children---Cordeala b 1871 m A. J. Frost, Mary Ann b 1873 m W. E. Hickle, Gidion Frank b 1875 and William Archie 1877. I also have read that Sarah had two daughters by Jasper Hickle. They are reported to be Laura R. Hickle b Jun 1880 and Margie M. Hickle b Jan 1883 all in Union Co. Tenn but I can't say this info is correct because of the discrepancy in the order of the marriages. I have no idea what happened to the two girls from this Hickle union nor do I know what happened to the two girls from the Atkins union except they were married. I know that Gidion Frank and William Archie migrated to Lincoln Co., KY and this is where their family is today. Gidion Frank is my Great Grandfather.
While the dates above make me believe that William Arch was still in Union Co. when Sara supposedly married Jasper, I'm not sure. Did he die and if so where is he buried? I have no information on what happened to William Arch (er?)Atkins, Jasper Hickle or Sarah Catherine Booker or their daughters. It's like they just disappeared. If anyone has any information on the people I have listed above I would appreciate it if you would share. I have lots of info to exchange also if any one wants it. Thanks.
