Susan, Thanks for the note, I do not recognize your names, but my info is so sketchy, there may be a connection. I will keep your note and give names to a lady on the net who has extensive files on the Adkins and put her in touch with you if she has any matches. Good luck John

Susan - It could be we are cousins. My grandmother's brother, Earnest, was killed about 1949, according to my mom. My grandmother was MaeBelle Adkins. Their parents were Charles Milton Adkins and Mary Messinger. All siblings were: Maggie, Nancy, Sarah Elizabeth, Albert, Geraldine, Violet Verlie, Mary Anne, George, MaeBelle and John. Earnest is buried in Lone Oak Cemetery in Cabell County in the same plot as my grandmother and her parents. You can find some of the family info on the ancestry tree by plugging in Charles Milton Adkins. They do not have all the siblings listed, as you will see. I believe all siblings are now deceased. Earnest would have been my great uncle, but died the year I was born. Hopefully this is the same person as your husband's grandfather.

Rebecca,
I think you are probably right, that you are my husband's second cousin. I really don't have much family histoy information except for what you already know. I was doing a lot of hunting on the web this summer but with the holidays I havent been doing as much. It's exciting to finally meet someone in the family though.
I was wondering if you would have any more information regarding Earnest's death. My husband remembers being told that he died in some kind of accident. If you know anything more or have an obit you can share that would be great. My husband's father and grandparents on the Adkins side have all passed away so we dont have any sources of information besides a couple of aunts and uncles. His aunt, Ron Parsons mother, did give me enough names that lead me to the fact that they were the children of Charles and Mary (Messinger) Adkins.
Anyway you can email me at texsusrma@aol.com and we can share some more information.

Earnest died by drowning in a bridge building accident. I cannot tell you where the accident happened, but that is what I know of it from my mother Dorothy Adkins Jewell. I would imagine that an accident such as that would be in the Huntington paper around the time of death. If you find more about the Adkins family please pass it on to me, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info. I will try to research and see if I can find a newspaper article on it. I will pass it on to you if I can find. Mark knew it had something to do with an accident when working on a bridge, but no details. You can email me at texsusrma@aol.com.
