i am searching my husbands paternal line. his ggrandmother was a nancy stiltner, (1884-1961) married a wade adkins (1881-1963) and they lived in buchanan area. I have SOME indication that her mother was a matilda or malinda carter, married a david stiltner.
I did find that elish(a) carter married a nancy stiltner and had a daughter named malinda, matilda.
malinda/matilda was born in 1849? so the dates fit.
I have some indication that Wade's mother was surrilda adkins, born circa 1850. her mother was ann slone. no father's located yet.
I don't know if this is related or just confusing.
any info will help.
