I am trying to establish my family tree as far back as I can possibly go. My grandfather was JB Atkins and he grew up in "Little Chicago" in Spartanburg, SC. His sister's name was Rebecca Sue Atkins, married into the Hammond family. Alonzo Atkins, Almond Atkins, Wesley Clark Atkins, Ansel Grover Atkins, Robert Leland Atkins, Gordon Atkins, Judson Woodrow Atkins, Andrew Atkins(he was a junior, either it was Foster Andrew or Andrew Foster). The other girl was Gener Atkins. Not sure exactly if that is spelled correctly, the Gener part. Now their parents(my great grandparents) names were Foster Andrew(or vice versus) Atkins and Laura Lamar Mahaffey Atkins. I will have more information sooner hopefully but I just wanted to start somewhere. I haven't had the best of histories kept and I want to start one for my future children and so on.
